    Rikishi smoking

    When I saw this picture I wondered if he was going to use all those cigarettes as candles on the cake.... (In a state of confusion...) aw are rikishi allowed to smoke?? harumafuji really shouldnt do that its so bad for his skin! i hope one day his skin improves so that in the sumo cartoons they would stop drawing pimples all over his face. :-) he would look quite good with hakuho skin!

    Hakuho on Aura no Izumi

    there were quite a few parts to the show but hakuho's part starts around here: Seems that he loves his parents very much (In a state of confusion...) and he slept with them till he was 15

    master thesis on sumo

    I actually really hoped to include how attitude change happens how foreign rikishi adapt to japanese customs (or never adapt to them) and how people like chiyotaikai who used to be "huryou" can change so much

    master thesis on sumo

    field/subject = philosophy, but can also lean towards "japanese studies". I'm based in England. My interests- philosophy, food, music. As for materials, i'm just hoping that I can visit some actual sumo stables to get INTERESTING first hand material. I do speak/read a decent amount of japanese. thanks!
  19. i've seen a video on youtube where asashoryu is interviewed, then goes back stage and is seen saying he wants mcdonalds but i cant find it anymore does anyone have a link? thank you
