Talk about stress on a car's suspension...

:-S  (Enjoying a beer...)

I don't know what kind of car this is, but a little movie of this victory parade would be a perfect ad for it (Laughing...)

Hehehehe perhaps they should look into getting some 4x4 dually Chevy pick ups to carry them in for the parade (Enjoying a beer...)

Been meaning to ask this for awhile. Does anyone have some images of Dejima? I have a hard time finding pictures of him.

I think I posted few images of him earlier to this thread and the ones below are probably the only ones I have which are previously unseen here on this forum. I believe the original scans from which I cropped these were done by Hahanoyama-zeki.

I don't think he's pulling the other guy from hair if that's what you mean.

No actually thats not what I meant,at least not the hair on his head-Maybe a little too subtle for you-It looks like a picture from the Karma sutra.

These scans are from Clyde Newton's book called Dynamic Sumo. Photography is by Gerald J. Toff.

First three yokozuna in their youth who have by now retired. First Akebono and then the Hanada brothers.

Another yokozuna in his youth, probably 50 kgs lighter than now but undoubtedly you recognize Maru.

Two ozeki, current and former. From early or mid-Nineties, I'd say. Muso & Nami. Sorry about the cropping but I can't help it.

Finally two yusho winners and moto-sekiwakes. Kotonishiki & Takatoriki.

I always love seeing pictures of young actors/sportsmen/rikishi who I know only in their later days. :-D

They dont seem to have changed that much or is it me? Takanonami is showing his age a bit now comparatively though.

Here are some B/W images from the aforementioned book. These are past yokozuna except for one Takamiyama image.

Futabayama's dohyo-iri.

futabayama-dohyo-iri.jpg

Hitachiyama.

hitachiyama.jpg

Miyagiyama's dohyo-iri from early Showa period. Take note of the double edge of the dohyo. Shimpans used to sit in front of the shihon-bashira pillars.

miyagiyama-dohyo-iri.jpg

Tachiyama

Taiho's dohyo-iri.

Moto-sekiwake Takamiyama, current Azumazeki.

Tochigiyama.

Tochinishiki celebrating yusho.

Umegatani II.

Wakanohana I's dohyo-iri. Taka's & Waka's uncle and former rijicho.

wakanohana1.jpg

Yoshibayama, the yokozuna whose true potential remained mystery due to a long absence in the service of the Imperial Army (or Navy?).

Moto-sekiwake Takamiyama, current Azumazeki.

It seems Takamiyama was Toki before Toki was Toki. :-P :-D

Toki's sideburns are unbeatable, but these are quite nice...

Still few more from Clyde Newton's Dynamic Sumo. Gerald J. Toff's photos again.

Kimura Shonosuke (29th? 28th?)

Nobori banners outside honbasho venue.

This is gozengakari, exceptional dohyo-iri when there's a member of Imperial family present. Instead of forming a circle and thus exposing someone's back to Emperor, rikishi form rows. Look closely at the back row. Three yokozuna-to-be! And unless I'm mistaken, fourth in the row ahead! :-D

gozengakari.jpg

Excellent image of tsuriyane!

And finally yumitori-shiki image. Probably from mid-90's? Does someone remember outright that guy's name?

Moto-sekiwake Takamiyama, current Azumazeki.

Wow! This means Akebono wore Takamiyama's kesho in his mae-zumo presentation! (I posted this picture somewhere in this thread, but can't find it right now, so here it is again)

Ake_shindeshi2.jpg

Look closely at the back row. Three yokozuna-to-be!

One of them wiping his nose. (Laughing...) Ah, Musa, always the clown. ;-)

I might as well post the remaining images from Dynamic Sumo. Gerald J. Toff to be credited once more.

Akinoshima wins Konishiki.

akinoshimavskonishiki.jpg

Dohyo-iri. Tamakasuga (?), Wakanohana (?), Mainoumi, Misugisato (?). Terao (?) in the background.

dohyo-iri.jpg

Konishiki. There is no one like Sally now. Even Musashimaru & Towanoyama are small relative to him.

konishiki.jpg

Kyokudozan, the politician.

kyokudozan.jpg

Mainoumi, the mighty mouse. I miss him especially. Another Showa 43er. (Laughing...)

mainoumi.jpg

Mitoizumi and his trademark.

Tomonohana, ozumo's Johnny Come Lately.

Misugisato (?)

dohyo-iri.jpg

According to the shikona on his keshō-mawashi this should be Takamisugi (Futagoyama, 179 cm, 144 kg) and not Misugisato (Futagoyama, 185 cm, 158 kg).

You may remove (?)s from Wakanohana and Terao... (Laughing...)

In the honour of Musa returning to the dohyo (hopefuly), here's a few pictures of his yokozunaness in all his masculine glory! (Heart) Let the images speak for themselves...

Last year my friend went to Hawaii where she met three sumotori at the beach. I couldn't see who they were, but I have hope. (Eating...) (Applauding...)

Is someone skilled enough to recognize any of them? Or are they too low on the banzuke?

P.S. Thx to the administrator!
