Hakuhou-permanent resident

Recommended Posts

Yokozuna Hakuhou has acquired permanent residency. One giant step towards becoming an Oyakata. He has yet to apply for citizenship but has voiced his wish to become an Oyakata in the past, so that will probably come next.

Just for reference, permanent residency is not a pre-requisite for becoming a Japan citizen. I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't deny a citizenship request from a yokozuna, but Japan requires one to give up any other citizenships as a condition of Japanese citizenship, so maybe he's still hedging his bets towards returning to Mongolia...
