the following guy is the one responsible for Tochiazuma's messy oicho ... (Shaking head...)

DSCF3677.jpg

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?

to tell you the truth i am not sure, but he was the only listed Tamanoi Tokoyama, so i guessed he is the one. Maybe Azuma does his hair somewhere else ....

Kaneshiro was the family name and first shikona of moto sekiwake Tochihikari. Unfortunately, he passed away a couple of years ago.

I've understood that if there's no tokoyama ranked high enough in a rikishi's own heya, he visits another heya within his own ichimon which has a tokoyama of high enough rank. If I'm wrong about this, someone please correct me. (Clapping wildly...)

Kirinji really resembles Izutsu Oyakata, moto-Sakahoko. Any relation or just a lookalike?

i mentioned this myself a couple of pages before but got no answer, so i guess they look alike for no special reason ....
