Kasugayama-oyakata (Hamanishiki) is sued by the former Kasugayama (Kasugafuji) for not paying the rent of the heya.

:-D

So, in Oyakata activities we have :

1. Takanohana playing with kids

2. Takanohana in a charity

3. Takamisakari playing fireman

4. Real life :-P

Takanohana-oyakata seems a nice guy

Most Oyakata barring Shikihide(former-Kitazakura), Tatekawa (former-Tosanoumi) and maybe a couple of others have that don't talk/don't get close to me look in their faces,. And true to form, most rikishi too. Takanohana I have seen twice, he stood out as a serious but friendly-looking man.

NHK's sumo (and of course other sports) announcer Kariya interviewed Kokonoe-oyakata in a talk-show about health promotion. He emphasized the importance of taking care of it by himself.

“I used up the calories I ate the same day. The young rikishi who skip keiko get diabetes etc.”

I'm wondering what this "being 一日 (ichinichi) something" is all about in Japan. Osunaarashi too posted on twitter that he was a one-day-police-station-chief. Could somebody explain this one-day-thing to me?

They really have parties for everything, don't they? How about a 'Kotomitsuki arrested again' or 'Asashoryu -- 6 years since the football match' party?

I think the thing I like best about Kotooshu is that he ennunciates so clearly that I can understand his Japanese. :D

It's just a 2-way public relations thing. One day police chief - I suspect the police had some sort of campaign they were promoting: traffic safety, cross at the cross walk, whatever. Stories appear in the press - hey look, Osunaarashi was a police chief for the day, why? And now everyone knows about whatever it was the police (or whoever) was promoting, and Osunaarashi (or whoever the celebrity may be) looks like a good guy and gains positive press too. I think they use idol singers a lot as the celebrity for this sort of thing.

Kotooshu-oyakata at an event commemorating 55 years of Japan-Bulgaria diplomatic relations told about his youth in Bulgaria, yoghurt etc. If he hadn't entered sumo he might have gone into American football and went to the US instead of Japan "and hadn't met all of you" - applause by the about 70 present.
