    Trivia bits

    I was wondering if you could extend this to actually quantify the rikishi classes, like the Hana no Nippachi-gumi, which are rikishi born in Showa 28 (1953), as compared to other birth years.

    He's just outside your time range, but the tallest rikishi in modern times is Fudōiwa, who competed from 1940 to 1954 and was 214cm tall. Ōuchiyama, who retired in 1959 (barely makes it into the 6-basho era), was over 2m as well.

    Haru 2022 day 15 pics overview

    In terms of amount of time as a stablemaster (as opposed to just oyakata), no one could beat Chiyonoyama, who split off after Hatsu 1967, and his uchi-deshi ozeki Kitanofuji won the yusho the basho after.
