Still wondering why Tosa looks so radiant in that pic...

Because he doesn't have to carry Konishiki around :-)

What? This thread still isn't locked? Well, in that case...

I've run out of special themes (that is, of pictures tied by a common subject to merit that name). So, here are some random images.

Kotonishiki (Heart) and Tosanoumi all decked out and ready for a jungyo dohyo-iri

Kokkai getting his mage-do and focusing on the day's matches

Miyabiyama in his youth already showing interest for sumo

Miya.jpg

Shikishima and his nostrils - wide enough to fit in a 100 yen coin, apparently

nostrils.jpg

Musashimaru reclining on Takatoriki... and here I though Takatoriki had a thing about foreign wrestlers :-/

Poza.jpg

Takamisakari doing his thing. Next to his taped knee you can see Miya wandering why the audience adors it so...

Kyokushuzan, Daishi and Akebono enjoying some sun after their bath

Sunce.jpg

White keiko mawashi drying (so, they *do* wash the things), the one closest to us apparently belongs to Toki (notice the difference in length!)

Tamakasuga getting his mage-do and smiling beatifically at camera

I've always suspected that the various heya employed "Bandage Gnomes".

Now we have proof.(Applauding...)

Now I see why Tosanoumi looks so happy in this picture---

Hes obviously found someone a little more managable to carry around and in one hand no less.

And there I am making silly comments as ever (In a state of confusion...)

The more things change,the more they stay the same--Right?

Edit-Only three days after I joined the forum aswell.

Just a sense of deja vu...most of the pics I see are on SumoForum. Maybe in another topic on the forum somewhere... (Hugging...)

And a final batch of random images... I've run out of images to post right now, so now it's up to the rest of you to keep this picture-heavy thread from sinking into oblivion... or I could just pin it and keep it afloat forever! :-D

Tamanoi-oyakata posing with fans. Notice a manekineko in the bacground. :-)

Tamanoi&me.jpg

Tamarikido!

Tatsunami-oyakata (moto-Asahiyutaka) welcoming once star-yokozuna Futahaguro as a consultant and trainer in his heya

Tatsunami&Kitao.jpg

ID of smiling Tatsunami (presumably) rikishi would be a plus...

What more proof do you need of connection between sumo and yakuza than these street thugs of rikishi? :-)

Thugs.jpg

Minatofuji, Asanowaka, Yotsukasa (looking less-than-thuggy) and Hamanoshima

Kitazakura resplendent in purple, walking in the rain

Akinoshima twirling two amused-looking kids as Kaio looks on

Ah, so that's what Mitsuko Nishiwaki looks like today! Thanks a lot for that picture. I had been looking for a recent one of her. Anymore of her to be found?

I'm a big fan of pro-wrestling, especially of women's wrestling, and Mitsuko used to wrestle for All Japan Women Pro Wrestling from 1985 to 1990. She was one of the first of AJW's legendary 1985 class (which included Akira Hokuto & Yumiko Hotta) to get a push and they tried to build her into something big in 1989 letting her win their annual singles tournament and also their annual tag team tournament when teaming with Madusa Miceli (Madusa in WCW, Alundra Blaze in WWF/WWE between 1993-95 and now a monster truck driver of the car Madusa). Something unknown happend when 1990 started and she soon gone and never seen again. She also got to hold their main tag team titles twice before leaving.

Yes, I thought it looked familiar. Wasn't it placed alittle higher, more like an altar on Friday? Perhaps it has moved up the banzuke of importance at the heya since this picture. Almost didn't recognise ?Tamanoi without his stick cum golf club. Still has that ready for golf look though. Perhaps a later tee time.

Soukakurai (left) - the sumotori from Inner Mongolian Autonomious Region of China in his traditional wrestling gear participating in Inner Mongolian student

celebration in Tokyo. The Southern Mongolians (Inner Mongolians) do the same kind of Mongolian wrestling as we do. But their costume differs from ours.

Soukakurai (his Mongolian name is Enhtuvshin) was placed second in this competition in Tokyo. The guy (on the right) who won the competition is Hosbayar (a Southern Mongolian) an all Chinese judo champion.

The attire design looks very similar to what North American Native Indians wear for their "war" dance, I seem to recall Iroquois do have very similar. Very colorful and interesting.

Soukakurai is a good looking kid, too, and I am sure he will gain more weight as he matures.
