Any relation to Kakizoe?

It's very interesting to see the progression of kesho art across the decades, as they are influenced by fashion, pop culture, and the emergance of graphic design. Of the huge range you've shown, a fair number maintain classic motifs (Izutsu Wakashoyo, Daishoho, Mitoizumi), but even more come away like cheesy knock-offs. Of those that attempt a more contemporary style, most are horrible but a few are very challenging and really shine through (Toyonoumi, Terao, and Kasugafuji). And then you have a rare fusion, with great results, like those of Mainoumi and Akebono.

Thanks so much Adere-san for all of the time and effort of showing us your enormous collection! It's eye-opening.

Did anyone else notice a higher proportion of lop-sided or punkish mage? Just look at these three below.

Daishoho

Maybe it's my imagination, but I think some of tokoyma must be doing it on purpose. Could anyone say whether this might actually be a more traditional style? Kotoshogiku's is the only contemporary mage that I can think of which reaches this level of 'fashion statement!'

i have noticed the same for Kotoshogiku but i blame the tokoyama's sense of economy. They probably ain't puting much bintsuke on the hair and when the rikishi moves, the oicho goes sideways. I doubt there is any real purpose there or a fashion statement.

Or it could be that these rikishi are walking like ships in a storm, making their oichos lose their lunches ....

Tochiazuma's oicho is also notorious (at least in my mind (On the banzuke...)) for getting all messy even after a 2 sec bout without his head having contact with his opponent. Tokoyama's technique must have something to do with that too ...

(Holiday feeling...)

:-P

Keep in mind that hair isn't hair isn't hair. Judging by the famous "undone" pic around somehere, Tochiazuma's hair looks quite stubborn.

ok .. this is a meaningless post but i just wanted to change the page because i'll put some nice pics from the early 50's and i don't want to make this page "heavier" than it already is ....

so please forgive me.

(this is the reason i am breaking my posts in pieces, because we could end up with 200+ pics in just one page ...)

Seeing Narotoumi (and the many others from the following posts), I am forced to bring forth my favorite lamentation:

"Where oh where have all the Soup rikishi gone?!?!?!"

The current crop certainly looks narrow to me . . .

Even Osh is not Soup anymore. Tokitenku was looking pretty Soupy at Makuuchi debut. Takamisakari is on the Campbell's side of life when he loses the kilos, but now he's a fatty Anko at his heaviest ever. Ama is even pushing the Soup envelope these days. Otherwise Satoyama is maybe the only Soupy Boy left in Sekitori Class? OK not really, but the first I can think of right off.

Alright done with my Lamentations now (I am not worthy...)

ok please somebody stop me ....

after the Yobidashi and the gyoji lets have pics of some Tokoyama (I am not worthy...)

i decided to only put pics of the young guys, just to show there is future in their trade.

Honorary mention to Tokitsukaze Beya which has 3 senior-tokoyama. They must be the best hairdressed rikishi in Sumo :-D.

I suppose that the many heyas that don't have a tokoyama go to fellow-ichimon heyas to do their hair ? Is that practical to do every day after practice or they just do them by themselves ?

anyway .... here's the young crop of Sumo hairdressers

Are you sure? This is Tokotsuka ranked at 3-toh? One would assume a tokoyama has to be of at least the second highest rank to be eligible to tie an ozeki's hair?
