    I have a friend with American and Georgian citizenship. So I suppose it’s not the case now :)

    What basho/bout is this image from?

    If both toriteki (under-juryo rikishi) in torikumi have oicho-mage, it is always shokkiri.

    Gagamaru activities

    I did enjoy Georgia. A small, poor country with ancient culture, great food and amazing nature. I can’t say it was totally “wow”, but this country is definitely worth a visit. You can write me a private message if you want and I’ll give you Instagram of the people who conducted a tour for more details.

    Gagamaru activities

    Few days ago I came to Batumi, Georgia. Today at 9 a.m. I was walking to the beach and saw Gagamaru passing by. It took me a while to understand that it was him…Looks like he’s lost at least 10 kilos after his danpatsu-shiki

    Juryo promotions for Aki 2022

    Kinbozan was firstly mentioned in 2015 on Kazakh TV as a potential deshi of Asashoryu.

    Sumo obituaries

    Musashimaru, Asahifuji and Takanohana in my opinion don’t look genki too. Or it may be just ageing…

    Sumo obituaries

    8 Yokozuna passed away in a period of the last 10 years. Even 6 years after the death of Chiyonofuji it’s so sad to see him in this list… He managed to outlive only Futahaguro, who had been gravely ill more than 10 years before his death. 2013:Taiho (72) 2015: Kitanoumi (62) 2016:Chiyonofuji(61) 2017:Sadanoyama(79) 2018:Wajima(70) 2019:Futahaguro(55) 2021:Tochinoumi(82) 2022:Wakanohana(69)

    Sumo obituaries

    He was 56th Yokozuna and one of those who didn’t manage to show his full potential on dohyo, in my opinion. I was quite worried when Magaki-beya rikishi had difficult times when he was ill and could not look after them properly.. Rest In Peace!

    He had problems with his legs, maybe this is one of the main reasons of his retirement.

    Yoshibayama, the accidental yokozuna

    The gyoji with a beard was Shikimori Inosuke 19th, who had a serious allergy to any kind of shaving.

    Liked that guy. I remember he was nearly crying when he saw that Aminishiki, whom he considered his idol ,was injured

    Ridiculous Predictions Aki 2021

    Chiyoshoma feels bad and asks ex-Arawashi to replace him. After getting some steroids and drugs from ex-Takagenji, Arawashi manages to win a Yusho. On senshuraku the two Mongolians meet each other in Kokugikan, when the name of a winner is announced, a serious quarrel starts between them - Chiyoshoma wants his money for a yusho, but it was Arawashi who deserved it. Rijicho Hakkaku announces that the only way to deal with the problem is a kettei-sen. After 10 minutes of fighting Arawashi (in black mawashi) wins. Chiyoshoma, who was also wearing black mawashi, was announced as a winner by mistake (by aways absent-minded tate-gyoji, of course). Arawashi, angry as never in his life, kills Chiyoshoma and takes all the trophies. He wants to leave Japan as fast as possible and buys ticket to Mongolia. Five minutes before the flight, the Police arrest the criminal. But… It was Chiyoshoma.
