Because my oyakata was introduced to my father in Japan / supporter's association leader Kohei Komakisan, this sort of great party was made possible so I am very happy.

親方と日本のお父さん・後援会長の小巻公平さんを招待してこんなすごいパーティが出来たことが、すごいうれしい。

My oyakata and my father in Japan/supporter's association leader Mr Kohei Komaki were invited, and I am so happy that we could have this kind of great party.

Thanks, I blew that one... I knew it was invite, not introduce but somehow lost it in the whole meaning.

おはよう

2009, February 9th

2009年2月 / 2009年02月09日

Today was degeiko at Miyagino beya.

今日は宮城野部屋に出稽古。

It was spirited keiko.

気合いの稽古

We worked up a good sweat.

いい汗かきました。

Sorry, I've fallen behind again.

Charity sumo

福祉相撲

February 11, 2009

2009年2月 / 2009年02月11日

Today was charity sumo.

今日は福祉相撲だった。

I became a sumo guy and I'm glad I can help out.

お相撲さんになって人の役に立てるのはうれしいことやな。

I did little kid sumo and interviews!

ちびっこ相撲とかインタビューとかやったよ。

Watch it on TV, OK.

テレビで見てね。

Today, I spoke with a reporter about the blog of the photo with the yokozuna, they said it was interesting.

今日、記者さんに横綱との写真のブログ、面白かったって言われた。

Thank you for all the comments.

たくさんコメントありがとう。

It took me quite a while to read them all!

時間のあるときによんでるよ。

That reminds me, I wrote about this time drinking sake getting a sore throat, in fact, that was a cold!

そういえば、この間酒を飲んでのどが痛いって書いてたけど、あれ、風邪だったよ。

When I went to the hospital I had a bit of a fever.

病院行ったら熱が少しあった。

But when doing keiko I was hot and then I cooled down!

でも稽古すると熱ってさめるんだよ。

The yokozuna said so too.

横綱もそういってた。

Mongolia was cold and, the trip was exhausting.

モンゴル寒かったし、疲れてたからかなぁ。

Everyone needs to take care.

みんなも体には気をつけて。

I was better today because I had a leisurely sleep.

今はだいぶんよくなったけど、今日はゆっくり寝るわ。

At the Kokugikan I had to buy this, eh?

これ国技館で売ってるらしいね。

Resemblance?

似てる?

Now, keiko is finished and the sekitori and their fans are together!

今、稽古終わって関取衆で団結しました!

I read them when I have time.

That reminds me, I wrote about this time drinking sake getting a sore throat, in fact, that was a cold!

そういえば、この間酒を飲んでのどが痛いって書いてたけど、あれ、風邪だったよ。

That reminds me, recently I wrote about having a sore throat after drinking, but it turned out to be a cold!

Mongolia was cold and, the trip was exhausting.

モンゴル寒かったし、疲れてたからかなぁ。

It's probably because Mongolia was cold and I was tired

The past tense + kara means "it was because of ..." and the ka naaa means "I suppose", and this follows on as teh reason why he got the cold in the first place.

これ国技館で売ってるらしいね。

It seems they are selling these at the Kokugikan.

I've won four straight!

I think that's what an Ozeki is supposed to do, but anyway I'm happy!

It's only the beginning though. Each day brings a new match. I'll try my best to win.

11 wins!

Thanks for getting excited about my match.

I borrowed my attendant Toukata's finger. [trans: not sure about the reading of the name]

Today I watched my opponent carefully and was able to win the match.

Now more than ever, each match is extremely important. Hope I can kick some ass with my sumo!

Please support me again tomorrow.

I think he is referring to Isenohana whose real name is Munakata where the kanji for muna can also be read as tou if you insist.

I'm so freaking happy!

I won my first tournament!

I'm truly happy.

I want to thank God, my family, and all of you who have supported me.

Shofukutei Tsurubei from NHK [he's a famous rakugo-ka] came to congratulate me on my championship.

Thank you.

Today's victory V is the championship V! hahaha

Now I'm really busy with TV and stuff!!

Thanks to everyone who wrote comments on my blog supporting me.

Now it's time to drink some delicious sake!

Day After Yuushou

I had so much fun drinking sake last night that I don't even remember it!

I drank too much! Hahahaha.

aef7d691cabd2d63d5d9d20ed8e94ec2.jpg

I had a post-yuushou interview this morning. This is a picture of me at 10am after I changed back into my clothes.

After that I took my mom to the airport.

I'm glad I could do my parents proud by winning the championship.

Now that the tournament is over, I should be able to relax a little bit.

Thanks for your comments everybody!

In the UK, this 'reverse V-sign' is a little rude.

Doubly rude, in fact.

Slightly off-topic, but for the UK local elections, the UKIP have put up billboards with Winston Churchill giving the double-V like Harumafuji.

Anyway, thanks for the blog translations!
