    Another Sekitori Marriage

    Nothing to be worried about. Such a reception is just a huge big schlepp for the couple, especially the bride. It's a duty to fulfill, not a party to feel comfortable at. She'll get her good remembrance of it afterwards...

    Found an other picture of him for better comparison. The right earlap and the hair line looks identical to me.

    Did he really say makunouchi? I'm just wondering, because I know makunouchi to be something to eat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makunouchi I ran out of likes today. So, thank's for the translation.

    Kisenosato - Hakuho The Japanese title/ description spoils the result. If you don't know the result yet, try to overlook it.

    Hey, can you tell me what "Font Day" means? I don't know, and I feel left out :D What Kimono Day means to the Kokugikan, is Font Day for Kinta's digests. A beautiful old tradition we all like. ;-) BTW: I just wonder when the first one will come up with a 'Guess Kisenosato's font style' game in the sumo games section... (Scratching chin...)
