As we can see, Yamamotoyama is fine and enjoys life. He lost about 40 kilo in hospital where he had to stay because of kidney problems.

Just now he is flying to Los Angeles with Shirononami where he will attend a small sumo tournament, giving autographs, shaking hands, doing a sumo ceremony ... later he will also be in Kansas.

In November he will be in Egypt for a festival, also doing a sumo ceremony.

    Sumo is a very good thing. Though better with affordable video.

Seriously though, good to hear he's in demand, and I hope he's healthy or getting healthy.

I dig the page where you sent me, and I see it's the era of kanban-ozeki. But I still fail to understand why you chose this basho?

Meh, the basho doesn't matter, just the fact that YMY's gig is a throwback to two centuries ago.

A few basho later, and there is a new giant performing the dohyo-iri - in fact it is his speciality...

Nicely done, Fay. Some good shots. How was his USA tour? Was it well received?

As mentioned somewhere above moto Yamamotoyama made a tour in the US and performed at several occasions. Among others he went to the 2011 Greater Kansas City Japan Festival. Yamamotoyama and Kelly Kneiting performed there and explained about sumo. He brought some souvenirs for me:

Have to take my measurements, often depends whether this is a "large" M. I'm 193 cm tall and weighs 90 kgs so that can be a little short...

I had mentioned in a post in the other forum somewhere that I was always concerned about him "falling on himself", and that exactly what he did here. 600+ pounds coming straight down on that knee had to do some serious damage.

YMY came to the KKan today for the first time since getting banished. "I have lost 40 kilos", he said. He is attempting to kick-start an acting career in Rice (America) and lives there now. "I am a fatso - actor.. My dream is to be in a movie with Johnny Depp and Ken Watanabe", he added.

250 kilos Ex-Yamamotoyama donned a mawashi today for the first time since he was banished from sumo at his old Onoe beya and even had one butsugari bout against Baruto. "It's been a while.. He's heavy.." said Baruto. "When I'm doing TV stuff in the USA I'm sometimes asked to do some shiko, which I don't since I don't see the need. I felt the need to move my body a bit today, but my Ozeki opponent was scary, " remarked XYMY.
