featured Naruto and Tokitsukaze beya.  The next episode of the series will be broadcast on the same channel next week (Sept.8 19:00 JST) with Tomozuna beya's story. 

That channel is gone from now forjoytv.com, but TV Tokyo Sports Watcher today also had a special on Naruto-beya, with focus on Torakio, VOD downloadable from Web Online without registration from now channel 004 23h SPORTSウォッチャー

It was mostly about Torakio this time and filmed much recently than the BS日テレ program with Tokitsukaze beya.

Here they are filmed at the Nagoya site at the beautiful and newly built keikoba (air conditioned!).  Last year the heya trained under a tent at the same location spot.  They also attended a joint training camp with a local wrestling school in Niigata last month.  Both ex Kotooshu and Torakio seen training in modern wrestling with the students.

Gappuri Soken is on earlier vanished BS Fuji anyway, so likely we'll get to see it 2 months after the basho as usual

Yokozuna monogatari (by mistake?) posted Gappuri soken for this basho and skipped that for Nagoya: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_zv3m-DMlk

mostly a Nagoya-basho digest and a report on Asahiyama-beya, no special rikishi-corner - Amakaze dropped down, Ikioi and Takekaze likely have other things on their mind

Yesterday a nice Ryogoku special was aired - a tour in the vicinity of the kokugikan with Mainoumi http://www4.nhk.or.jp/goto-chi/x/2018-09-18/21/25363/1187147/

This NHK series is only available on MiomioTV, ForJoyTV has now lost all channels and is virtually dead - downloaded VODs can still be viewed with the app and registration still works for that.

Fortunately, MioMio now can be downloaded smoothly with youtube-dl - it used to take days to start a connection.

In testing an updated application, I managed to get the latest Tochinoshin program.  Although it is very butchered and fragmented, it is in a playlist to make it somewhat easier to watch.  Hopefully Akinomaki/someone? can find and post a continuous video.

I nice piece about Otake-beya with oxygen masks at night at a program about how to improve your health by better sleep

Sleep apnea is apparently one of sumo's occupational diseases - today on Bakuho!The Friday Shibatayama-beya is shown at sleep using CPAP oxygen masks - with integrated internet monitoring function by a hospital. Oonokuni while active had suffered from sleep apnoea and uses the service to improve the health of his deshi.

I have sleep apnea; being overweight is a contributing factor.  It is an insidious condition: breathing stops every 30-60 seconds all night, waking up exhausted and in a cold sweat, falling asleep during the day for "no reason."  I had a minor knee problem that became debilitating because it was not healing while I slept.  Now I use a CPAP religiously.  Rikishi probably wouldn't last a year with undiagnosed apnea.

Usually I don't mention English programs here, but it was in the Japanese news: CNN "True Tokyo" with a part on sumo

https://en.prnasia.com/releases/apac/cnn-s-true-tokyo-explores-the-vibrant-sporting-culture-in-japan-s-capital-ahead-of-the-2020-olympic-games-227079.shtml

Quote

Sumo wrestling is one of the most iconic of all sports in Japan. Wire visits one of Tokyo's so-called wrestling stables, where young wrestlers begin their lifelong sumo journeys. The young men train, eat and live in the stable -- and CNN gets front-row access to a hard-hitting, three-hour training session as the fighters prepare for a major tournament.

Trailer for the program https://edition.cnn.com/videos/tv/2018/10/22/cnn-true-tokyo-sport-10-27-18.cnn-creative-marketing

where else but Musashigawa-beya

I just can't  warm to rikishi being called 'fighters' or matches being called 'fights'. As rough as sumo can be, those terms have, at least to me, an overly violent connotation for what sumo is as a sport.

Thanks for that
