    Banzuke for Nagoya 2022

    yes its not a rank in itself its just like an extra and called that way because of placement on the Banzuke Interesting is the 40s reference to the same idea as Outside-M

    Haridashi has appeared in a number of ways historically. Apart from Haridashi-Yokozuna, Haridashi-Ozeki, Haridashi-Sekiwake, Haridashi-Komusubi it has also appeared at various levels of -Maegashira including just being tacked on the bottom of the listsuch as Haru 1853. Its surprising how many different levels you can find

    Another note ragarding Asahikuni is that he sat out the following tournament with an injury. No doubt that influenced them

    I knew there was some kind of injury somehow from the way he was acting. Good to hear clarification.

    As per the above, so long as the person appliedf for the correct Visa, they wouldn't be screwing anything up.

    Travel to Japan Today

    don't misunderstand I'm not proposing it but I know that someone will be thinking about it So its better to have a discussion about that and highlight the concerns as has now been done. By the way, I discussed the issue of people with family with a person inside the department and apparently it is possible for people with family there to visit. Obviously with certain requirements. ps - it is also apparently the case that your Japan-side guide would be essentially controlling your actions. Apparently tour groups are also required to have someone based in Japan to take responsibility.

    Just make a new keyboard layout with the top left key as a hot key that applies macrons easily. So typing Ō...etc becomes easy.
  12. On that subject I recall Ryomaden and Taira no Kiyomori. Can't recall what year they were
  13. I'll kick it off with a show I'm watching at the moment [between bashos] Kimi to Sekai ga Owaru Hi ni 君と世界が終わる日に So far this is turning out to be one of the best TV series I've seen. Well worth a look. A brief synopsis: Mamiya Hibiki works as a car mechanic and lives with his girlfriend Ogasawara Kurumi. Hibiki makes a plan to propose to Kurumi. On the day he will propose to his girlfriend, he slides off a tunnel and becomes trapped. 4 days later, he is able to escape, but he faces a different world. There are no people outside, the traffic system is destroyed, and there are bloodstains on the streets. What happened to the world? Hibiki tries to find Kurumi.
  14. I thought we could do with a general topic on Japanese TV Shows and Movies. These don't have to be sumo related. Mostly interested in those which you are watching or have watched.

    Ironically I dropped off that list back then because I was far out of reach in various parts of Japan for an extended period without access to online.
