Hirogawa? (I don't have this shikona at all)

...

I have a _Hirokawa_ who made his Juryo debut in July 1961 and retired at Juryo 11 in January 1969. He made it to komusubi for a single tournament in May 1964 after which he headed straight back down to Juryo for a spell, possibly due to injuryas he had a 3-12 on his way down.

Thanks for helping out. Problem is just that his shikona never was 広川, at least according to my sources (and Japanese Wikipedia as well). It was 廣川 which isn't that different actually. Probably a typo in the magazine.

Stupidly I forgot to check the kanji, but I now that I have done so I find you are right, of course.

Probably it's a typo as you say.

forgive me for not isolating the specific picture i am about to ask about, i did not figure i would be able to find it if i quoted the post and be able to single it out.

anyway, in the above post with all the black and white photos there was one picture of a dude getting his head shaved and the caption was something along those lines of saying "head shaving". my question is, why would that be performed at all? or is that more common amoung rikishi who do not make certain rank but retire? it did not look like a ceremony of any kind so i wasnt sure for what reason that would ever happen to shave the head and not just cut the oicho.

i have the impression it is done when a rikishi has A LOT of hair and then the oicho is getting too thick. They just shave the hair at the top of the head and then cover it with the special folding. This way the oicho i thinner and easier to make i suppose.

I have no idea if it is still done or if it is even correct but seems logical and i am pretty sure that i've read this somewhere.

anyway....

Wakasugiyama, Ogiyama, Aonosato, Toyokuni, Yutakayama

Mitakayama, Amazukaze, Akinokuni, Wakabayama, Tokibayama

Maedamine, Hatano(?), Okozan(?), Abenogawa, Todoroki

Several shikona of these I don't have at all, others are well known rikishi. Hmm... (Edit: I got the solution, these rikishi are all from Tokitsukaze-beya).

Oh, and the bottom right guy isn't Mori. Mori is three grouped "trees" , but this here are three grouped "cars" .

Some Taiho pics

DSCF2951.jpg

What always strikes me when I see a picture of Taiho is just how ordinary he looks,not quite the image I had in mind when I first read of "The great bird Taiho winner of a record 32 yusho."

The picture of him on the NSK website gives him more of an air of power but do you think that was intentional on their part?
