Some highlights:

  • Hakuho revealed his intention to retire to his stable and his family on the 10th day of Nagoya basho, after 10 wins. ("a yokozuna’s responsibility")
  • He hasn't decided on a hairstyle but thinks ex-Kyokutenho's looks pretty good. His wife would like to see bangs.
  • On why he came to Japan at 15: he watched a lot of Japanese TV dramas (Oshin, Love Generation) with his mother and really wanted to visit Japan at the time.
  • At the end of her letter, his wife asks him to stop doing shiko while waiting for the elevator at their condo, since it frightens the neighbours.

On ariyoshi seminar, 2 members of the NSK oyakata channel take on Gal Sohen.

that was a brutal challenge, considering they had to eat a normal okonomiyaki, a mochi okonomiyaki & a cheese okonomiyaki
