    Ichinojo intai

    He was Tottori Johoku student, part of their sumo team, and coached his school team. Even now he is a Japanese named Miura Takashi (三浦 駿). How do you think he is "never became acclimated to Japanese culture and likely never really had the capacity to do so"? I agree on your second paragraph about "love for all things". He has bokh background, firstly joined Tottori Johoku's judo team until the sumo coach asked him to transfer to sumo club. He had a potential to be top sumo wrestler. He was a national amateur champion, hence he started Ozumo at Ms15TD. He rise up fast and steadied his sumo journey was quite consistent on kachi-koshi, with some ups and downs. He even tried to become Japanese so he (maybe) can continue his life at sumo, as an oyakata or his school's coach. Comes his back injury issue. His huge weight (recorded maximum at 227 kg) is the biggest risk to exacerbate his back pain. He has been troubled by back pain since 2016, maybe until today. He had tried to reduced his back pain by losing weight. His back pain influenced his sumo playing or even his lifestyle. His chronic pain makes his lifestyle choice even worse. His alcoholism and some violence done, in my opinion, is his coping mechanism to relieve his stress. (Even this is not a right thing to cope with your emotion, don't break your body, or other people, even worse) But I have disagreement on this statement. Yes, his attitude was a disrespect of the cultural norms. But by leaving sumo entirely, in my opinion, he is trying to keep sumo's face good. As we have known some rikishis had bad face facing sumo world. He is trying to respect the hinkaku of sumo. He doesn't want sumo has a face of violence or bad behaviour. Now he is using his capacity to respect sumo even more (even this is a long way to go, but still, at least he tries). Let us hope he gets help that he needs (chronic back pain, alcoholism, violent conduct) and have kachi-koshi on his second life outside sumo. Bonus content

    Will Terunofuji stay on? Or his opponents will give him tap-in win?
  11. I think rikishis skip breakfast. They wake up early in the morning, hard keiko, big lunch, then nice afternoon nap (as I'd seen on many sumo-related documentaries)
