  1. Terunofuji's health problems

    You can keep your name if you get permanent residence, but you have to assume a Japanese name if you are to become a citizen. Not like the US where you can keep your name from your country of origin.
  2. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Actually the YDC and the NSK had not said made any rulings before he retired to my recollection. They were waiting on the investigation to be completed. I think they would have given him a suspension.

  5. Not sure which thread I should post so I think this one is most fitting. Tochinoshin was greeted upon arrival by fans, the media, his wife and daughter, family, and a choir. Truly a hero's welcome.

    I do have the list but I have to go back to my word file which is 30 pages long. Currently I'm working on Yokozuna stats. Tochinoshin will also enter the record books next basho since he has tied the slowest makuuchi debut to ozeki record.

    In the day before his expected official promotion to ozeki, Tochinoshin had some media time, talking about still figuring out what his ozeki theme will be. And Coca Cola Japan stopped by and gave him 900 cans of his favorite coffee, "Georgia Emerald Mountain Blend." https://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201805290000415.html
