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 ....

That's what I thought. This thread is so long that i couldn't remember if I was making it up or not! And way too daunting to try and find it. Thanks for clarifying our lack of clarity on the matter. ;-)

The Tongans ... anyone care to post some info on them? I really had no idea about a Tongan community in Sumo back in the 60's. Is the article on the latest Ozumo magazine booklet to any relation? I cannot read it .... (Sign of approval...)

The first one whose you don't know the shikona is Masudayama. The second one, I'm searching... ( I think to Wakanoumi but I don't sure about that )

The second one he's not Wakanoumi but must be Onishiki.

Thank you for these pics!

Thank you for these pics!

I was thinking Onishiki too, but didn't have anything for comparison. I am relying on memories from 35 years ago, and at my age, anything more than 35 minutes ago is questionable.

Oh, now I know you're messing with us. "Wakajishi" is definitely a photoshopped image of Katayama made to look like an old picture. ;-)

Wakajishi has the dubious honour of having the record of most kabus held during his coaching career. No less than eleven (!) myoseki in only thirteen years. ;-)
