Double post for the future.. 

Ex Aminishiki has left Isegahama beya and opened Ajigawa beya in Tokyo today. Temporary residence, will move to permanent premises in July. First deshi, 17 year old Sakuraba, his nephew, entering Jonokuchi in January, did maezumo in Kyushu. 

I always figured Aminishiki would branch out.

The question is, does that mean Shimanoumi is imminently retiring? Not surprising if the former, since Shimanoumi has had almost entirely a year of MKs and might be feeling near the end of his rope.

It only may mean he's thinking about it - I guess Toyonoshima just saw no chance to get a kabu of his own and wanted to start his 2nd career before he turns 40. Interesting that Sponichi mentions the Izutsu myoseki WAS owned by the family of the late Sakahoko - so apparently Shimanoumi is in possession now. 

Toyonoshima said that he decided to leave after the Kyushu basho and "I turn 40. I thought that if there's something to change, now is the time." o

That may be the main reason, or it is like Zakzak looks at it o: he had no option for another kabu on loan, Shimanoumi is in danger of dropping to makushita next basho and wanted to have the kabu back. They mention that toshiyori kabu are traded now (again, though not allowed) for presumably over 100 million yen - the total income for 10 years of a plain oyakata.

Irumagawa-beya will be renamed Ikazuchi-beya sometime next month, as former Komusubi Kakizoe takes the reins ahead of the mandatory retirement of the present shisho (former Sekiwake Tochitsukasa) in April. That's according to Hideki Makihara, member of the House of Representatives for Chuo Ward in Saitama city, where the heya is located.

It's almost exactly 30 years since Irumagawa-beya was established, branching out from Kasugano-beya.

I'm curious to hear whether there's any reason why they won't do the usual kabu swaparoo when it's time to pass the baton.

I assume Irumagawa isn't actually that much more prestigious than Ikazuchi?

Ikazuchi was a big name at one time as far as I know, to the point that the ja.wiki article about the former stables of the name refers to an "Ikazuchi-ichimon" (this predates the official recognition of ichimon as Kyokai power groups), but we're talking 100 years ago there. If I had to venture a guess - maybe it's because ex-Kakizoe isn't actually an Irumagawa product and so he's essentially just taking over the stable's assets here, not continuing a lineage he's part of?


Edit: That's from the "no knowledge is ever completely useless" department - my first run-in with Ikazuchi having major history and Ikazuchi-ichimon as a thing was a whopping 15 years ago, and it looks like I've only had one other opportunity to sort of mention it since ("powerhouse Ikazuchi-beya")...

This will be effective from February 1st, it was announced earlier. At the same time, Wakafuji-oyakata (former Maegashira Otsukasa) will move from there to Kise-beya, something that had been rumoured for a while.


Elsewhere, as of today Otowayama-oyakata (former Maegashira Tenkaiho) has switched to the vacant Sanoyama myoseki, still as a borrower.
