Another Sekitori Marriage

Recommended Posts

Midorifuji has gotten married. The bride is Chihiro, 23, the daughter of an Isegahama beya's koenkai member. The two first met when she was 17, but only were casual acquaintances.  They met again a couple of years ago, and soon after began a relationship. They got engaged in March of last year, a mere three months after they began dating, and welcomed a newborn daughter into the world last October (presumably the reason for the quick engagement). 

"Speed sumo," joked Midorifuji about the quickness of the relationship's progression.

Hokutofuji and his wife Manami finally had their wedding ceremony & reception today at a Tokyo Hotel. They registered the marriage in 2020 but had to wait 4 years. 600 people attended including master Hakkaku.

After the marriage  January 2020 they intended to have the ceremony in June, but Corona stopped that. In March 2021 their first son was born. Hokutofuji (31) after the torikumi could go to the hospital then, because the Haru basho took place in Tokyo. And because there was no jungyo, he could be with his wife Manami (35) at the time when childcare was hard.

Hokutofuji (27) had his engagement press conference at the heya today - his fiancee is Manami Nakayama (31) from Osaka. They met at his sumo debut basho Osaka 2015, she asked for a photo - and then by chance 2 months later near Hakkaku-beya before the Natsu basho, after asageiko, she had watched it at Nishikido-beya. She moved to Tokyo one year ago and works at a patent office. They plan to register the marriage in January and have the reception in June. He gave her a kinboshi as birthday present: it was on day 1 of the Aki basho - he had proposed to her 4 days before after they watched a performance of "Lion King" - for the 6th or 7th (Nikkan) time together.

No jungyo after Hatsu - the time is used for weddings. Today also Chiyoshoma (32) and his wife Enkhmurun Börte (guess from エンフムルン・ブルテ) (33) had the Corona delayed ceremony and reception - 5 years after the marriage, with about 500 guests, among them the oyakata, the former Kokonoe okamisan and the family of Chiyoshoma.
