  1. Rikishi extra activities

    Given his experience (& Chiyokuni), what would be his recommended period away from the dohyo to recuperate from career threatening injuries?
  2. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    I am sure that Kintamayama will devour this slavishly. https://www.amazon.co.jp/貴の乱-日馬富士暴行事件の真相と日本相撲協会の「権力闘争」-鵜飼-克郎/dp/4800281024/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1518806857&sr=1-2&keywords=相撲
  3. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    And we have a book on the whole thing now. https://www.amazon.co.jp/貴の乱-日馬富士暴行事件の真相と日本相撲協会の「権力闘争」-鵜飼-克郎/dp/4800281024/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1518806857&sr=1-2&keywords=相撲
  4. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    How quickly does it take for a TV station to put together such a show?
  5. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    Is this the same Asahi TV that used unauthorized NSK material? http://www.sumoforum.net/forums/topic/37505-day-after-pics-overview-hatsu-2018/
  6. Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    Is this the same Asahi TV that got into trouble for unauthorized use of NSK materials?
  7. Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    Anyone going to archive it? Or even fact-check it?
  8. Training pics overview Haru 2018

    It seems like he can go back after the Natsu Basho (which is the only other period that the sekitori are not on jungyo tours)
  9. Schedule till Haru

    NHK premium will also show the variety section (singers and rikishi performance), most likely on Sunday (after some editing). There is seldom a live broadcast of the event, I think.
  10. Asasekiryu intai-zumo pics overview

    No different from Asashoryu.
  11. Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    We should do a video of him doing it all the way until the final shikkiri.
  12. Setsubun 2018 rikishi and oyakata action

    I guess it is up to each festival organiser? the Ajigawa/Isegahama heya has close ties with this particular shrine, as Akinomaki has repeatedly reported.
  13. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    This is the traditional Isegahama setsubun event, the same shrine where they also distribute mochi during New Year celebration. It is more intimate and has a lower profile compared to the major Setsubun shrine festivities I doubt that Harumafuji has ever participated in the Narita setsubun ceremony alongside Hakuho.
  14. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    Now we know what his status is, more or less.
  15. Elections January 2018

    Either ex-Daido or the Takanohana in-house oyakata?
