Former rikishi activities

Ex-(still)Shiraishi, also tsukebito of Kokonoe-oyakata, had to quit ozumo because of continuous injuries. He then went to vocational school and learned the trade at a famous Cantonese restaurant in Osaka. Of course he had also chanko duties in the heya, but was already used to cook for himself since he was a child, because both parents were working.

He uses white sesame from Kikaijima (Kagoshima) for the dishes in his Szechuan noodle restaurant in Osaka "Kikaijima tantanmen".

Shiraishi is now oyakata - of his Kitanohama-beya Dandan noodle shop. He had only lunch service in his first shop, and moved to a new location to expand to dinner business.

His shop's point card is banzuke style, till the Osaka-basho he hopes he can provide a sumo-beya visit tour as merit for the top rank customers.

Evening Nsta had a nice feature of former rikishi second lives.  Ranging in fields of businessman to health care workers, it delved into the lives of Takamaru (chanko shop) and another report of "Takahanada Killer" Misugisato who runs his own clinic practicing traditional Chinese treatment and therapy.

Ex-Wakainami last year had made fraudulent phone calls as a member of a group led by 2 mobsters, who now got arrested for tricking people into making payments with Amazon gift cards. The police investigates their other crimes - about 90 cases with a fraud total of 75 million yen. http://news.tv-asahi.co.jp/news_society/articles/000141417.html

 
It was in the news before, but I didn't find it mentioned on the forum so far.

Former jd Tsunanofuji is now member of the song chorus group Junretsu.

They did some cheering for the Japanese Olympic team, in the colors it did wear at the opening ceremony. In the photo only he, Yujiro Shirakawa had to wear red trousers: he had tried to display his specialty - shiko stamping - and this tore apart the white one. http://www.daily.co.jp/gossip/2016/08/12/0009381428.shtml

The group Junretsu got a music award and will be in the NHK kohaku year end singing. Ex-Tsunanofuji's sumo past gets reported again with these news - Nsta today, 5:49h http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc412794/

And a 1h variety program even has this in the title: former rikishi at the kohaku. At the top, but over in just 4min http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc414057/

The program starts with an overview of 2nd careers for rikishi and shows a few. About 60 retire each year, 46.4% get employed at ordinary companies: former Masumeidai is now a reporter, Hayotozakura a conductor

On 15/09/2017 at 19:43, Akinomaki said:

Ex-Hayatozakura now works as station attendant at the Ikawa-line Okuizumi-station. He entered the railway company in March this year.

42.3% run a company - top in this category is of course Asashoryu, the usual is owning a chanko restaurant like Tamakairiki, Taninohana with his ramen shop

On 01/08/2018 at 17:19, Akinomaki said:

Ex-Taninohana runs a ramen shop for nearly 40 years now and recently has moved to Kiba in Tokyo's Koto-ward. He was one win away from juryo and retired because he felt that he had reached his limit.

Only 4.1% remain in the NSK, as oyakata, wakaimonogashira, sewanin, heya manager etc.

Shirakawa is among the 7.2% others (the "Sono ta" of the program series title) - he had quit after one year because of the usual: injuries. His mother wanted to have him become famous, and made him to go for actor next - Ninpuu_Sentai_Hurricaneger, but that wasn't easy either. The leader of Junretsu asked him to become a member of the new group, and for 11 years this his main job is to perform for the fan base of the group - elderly ladies.

A huge amount of work for one huge bowl. Wow.
Hungry now... I'd like to jump in a plane and go to that great ramen place that featured in a documentary some time ago.

Ex-Maenokatsu, the son of the present Shikimori Inosuke, on the 1st and 2nd had an exhibition of "animal paintings dedicated to the shisho" (ex-Akinoshima). During keiko March 2011 he collapsed with subarachnoid hemorrhage and retired (after several basho banzuke-gai). Since Sep. 2017 he's involved with an NPO that helps disabled people get independent through artistic activities.

Anyone have any idea what Oosunaarashi is up to? He’s been posting some cliched motivational stuff on his Twitter and alluding to some big thing in the near future in Japan that he’s got going. Any ideas?

He said in his last Tweet that whatever this is is bigger than Rizin, I suppose that could well be a bigger deal.

He's a (driving) criminal on the run from Japanese justice - I doubt he'll return to Japan in the near future

Might want to tell him that, but if his big thing is to go back and get arrested, I hope he rethinks it.

I think this has not been posted so far (and the videos date back to 2017/2018), but it seems that moto-Takanoyama is now involved with the Czech MMA Association:

https://de-de.facebook.com/czechMMAA/videos/sumista-pavel-bojar/1249394918530108/

 

Also, he made an apperance on Czech magazine TOP STAR, answering questions about his sumo past and his post-career ambitions (his daughter has a cameo, it seems):

Ex-Hirotsukasa recently posts regularly self-PR videos on the YT channel of the sumo rock band he's a member of: Chankoponchy https://twitter.com/chankoponchy

Shiko stamping for every occasion: live events, sumo fitness, jinku, chanko nabe, pray for success, celebrations - and the original function:  quell the grounds

As discovered on Reddit recently, ex-Hirotsukasa is apparently travelling the world now and partly funding his travels by doing sumo street performances under the name "Gocchanko"; the Reddit poster spotted him in Melbourne, and according to his Twitter account he was in Mexico prior to that.

ぶらり途中下車の旅 - a trip aimlessly stepping off the train, on the 5th at the JR Sobu line (which passes through Akihabara and Ryogoku) has as last stop a visit to Chanko Kai of former Kaishoryu - at 48min. in the video http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc460023/

On 13/01/2011 at 04:23, Jonosuke said:

the oldest son of Tomozuna oyakata, former Kaishoryu, as he opened a new chanko restaurant, "Chanko Kai", at the building where Tomozuna Beya was located until 1998 in Tokyo's Koto-ward.

On 15/01/2011 at 22:12, Fay said:

We went to Kaishoryu's yet opened restaurant, I think someone mentioned here Kaio's favourite dish "Garlic chicken", which they said, he eats every day. It's really delicious. They mainly serve chanko and you can combine with some little snacks. We got a dessert (the Oyakata said it's his receipt) ... sweet octupus ....hmmm, I don't know if I won't prefer Vanilla ice next time again ;-)

The last Toyama pref. sanyaku before Asanoyama, Kotogaume at his restaurant "Rikishi food Kotogaume" in Sumida ward. Not really lean, but lean compared to his 187kg when active. http://hochi.news/articles/20191112-OHT1T50052.html

his specialty: Crystal nabe stew

Again some criminal activities as well unfortunately: ex-Masunofuji (Masuko) was arrested for theft and more today. He's accused of having stolen 2 years ago the health insurance card of a co-worker from a locker at the workplace, a care facility, using it at the automatic machine of a bank to create a loan card and taking out about 1.47 million yen with the card he made, for which his colleague received the invoices. Suspect Masuko admitted to it.
