    Kyushu Basho at Kokugikan Question re Service Dog

    Not sure about the dog, but it's only in the last few weeks that Japan has begun to open up to those with pre-existsing visas. It's hard to imagine tourists being allowed in by November. Even if you are, one of the current rules is that no one who has entered the country within the previous 14 days is allowed attend the basho. That fits in with the governments two week self quarantinee rule for those coming from abroad.
  5. Chiganoura Beya since its founding has occupied the building that used to be Takasago Beya. Nishikido Beya (if I remember correctly) started out in a newly constructed building called ‘Mitoizumi’ - with the floors Above the heya being apartments.

    Sumo obituaries

    Saddened to hear this. He used to come to our dojo back in the day. I did butsukari with him and it was like trying to move a truck with the handbrake on. Was a nice guy.
  8. I wrote a bit about Hakuho and Hokuseiho
  9. Maybe I should start thinking about an OnlyFans account

    John Gunning Column Plagerized By Another Writer!

    Those kind of sites are just bot / spam sites that exist to get you to click on phishing links. You see similar videos on YouTube. They auto-grab content and change bits of it in an effort to get clicks. Probably best if you delete the link as it’s just helping them out.
