Asashoryu activities

Recommended Posts

Special envoy for Mongolian-Japanese relations Asashoryu had hinted that he'd like to have an Akita dog (like Hakuho has), and the society to preserve the akita-ken decided to give him one as a present - the cousin of the one the Russian figure skate Olympic champion received recently - next month directly in Ulaanbaatar, from the mayor of the city which will be the host for the Mongolian Olympic team.

The journey of Masao to Mongolia had been reported at every stage, and today Asashoryu got him

Asashoryu today played futsal with Alessandro Del Piero at a charity event "We are the future" to support children who fight cancer

 

Later in the week he was banned by the NSK for the next two basho, just for tradition's sake.

And the best part of today's GogoSmile was a presentation of the most successful 2nd life of a rikishi ever

3 hours ago, Akinomaki said:

Really good info today was on GogoSmile http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc411686/

with focus on the 2nd life of a rikishi - Ishinriki as guest - 2:46h-3:28h

At 3:09h Asashoryu (first Harumafuji at 3:07h with his school etc.)

He has a restaurant that serves German food, for up to 500 guests, with a VIP lounge below - and he spent 200 million yen on an installation there to serve delicious beer.

A bank that offers a 10% yearly interest rate, with 30 branches.

He bought a circus for 300-400 million yen.

50 000 hectare to produce buckwheat / soba for export.

Premises in the best location of Ulaanbaatar the size of 5 Tokyo Domes, where he plans to build something like Tokyo Midtown

That he'll be president one day is seen as quite likely - he was already shown like one with heads of state: Putin and Xi Jinping

Without doubting Asashoryu's business acumen and without denying the fact he has retired a very wealthy man, some of those business projects require much more money that he would have acquired during his professional sumo life. So, my question should have to do with the following: is there some information about his partners and investors?

Asashoryu said that he'd like to have a future bride for his akita-ken Masao (reddish fur) - and the society to preserve the akita-ken decided to give him a female akita-ken as well as a present - this time a pup with white fur or tiger-ed , to do PR for other varieties of akita-ken as well. He'll get it on May 3rd, when he's in Odate at the national meeting to contest the best looking akita-ken.

Asashoryu today was at the soccer match Japan-Mongolia in Saitama to support his home team at its try for a kinboshi, but witnesses a 6-0 win by Japan. He plans to establish his own soccer club next: "Maybe I'll make it the FC 68."

Asashoryu on Twitter and Instagram presents the Naadam festival, that started yesterday - without spectators this year. Usually it is held at the central stadium in UlaanBaatar (except the horse race), this time moved to the outskirts of the city, broadcast on TV and on the net.

The Off-Topic forum is for "Casual discussion about topics not related to sumo." Does anyone else think that this isn't really the right place for news about a dai-Yokozuna, even if he's retired? I would never have noticed this were it not also posted in the "Sekitori Marriage" thread in Ozumo Discussions.

We still have no sumo related off-topic, so no longer NSK, former rikishi activities are all in off-topic: the general thread and also for Akebono, Konishiki, Harumafuji, Baruto, Osunaarashi etc.

Edit: Takanohana is in Japan-Japanese discussion

Yeah, let's get these topics in some sort of logical order!  What are we not paying you mods for?!?

I think we definitely need a new category.  My vote would be "Former rikishi activities".  This is very specific and this category would fill up fast with information about the many rikishi who have retired, quit or been booted out. 

I don't like "Sumo Information" because it is a catch-all category.  It's stated purpose is "Sumo information, frequently asked questions, past threads with popular/common/informative topics, etc"".  It's really a "Miscellaneous sumo" category, a "mish-mash".   There are so many former rikishi.  They are NOT miscellaneous.  They deserve their OWN category!

I've always laughed about Takanohana being placed in Japan-Japanese discussion, as if he had more hinkaku than those other Yokozuna.

I would prefer to move them all into Japan-Japanese discussion and simply add to its description "and sumo related off-topic". If I were to start them now, I would put them all there.

There are also the CMs with (fake) sumo appearance and other threads that are not sumo unrelated off-topic, but not about Japan
