Ms1 Tosayutaka, nickname Gori-chan, after last year again visited a real gorilla at the Japan monkey center in Inuyama-city, Aichi.
And again like last year he received a branch of the miraculous mandarin tree, which had sprouted and did bear fruit out of a seed mixed in the excrements of gorilla Taro, at a probability of 1 to 2 million. (I don't know how they calculated this, seeds usually are mixed in excrements and it helps them sprout)
With this lucky charm he finished 11-4 last year and hopes to get back to juryo this year.

Hakuho went to meet children in a hospital.
Asked what he fears, he said "Thunderstorms, maybe." Doing sumo with the kids, he also didn't forget scouting and remarked "You're strong, definitely come to our heya."

The zenya-sai had a shooting game, in which Terunofuji finished "yokozuna" by hitting the "yokozuna" targets, Ichinojo did it as well, Endo had no hit.

and a talk-show with the 3 yokozuna and 4 popular veterans - Kyokutenho, Wakanosato, Aminishiki, Toyonoshima
50 were asked "Which rikishi would you want to be your lover?", Hakuho was top with 28. Kakuryu had 0 and by palm-reading was classified as the most lewd one of the 7.

Rikishi with kids seems to be the most frequent of all extra activities

Found a new year special show of 2013 that I thought would be fun to share while it's still available. Enjoy!

Found a few scenes from Jill Coulon's "A Normal Life Chronicle of a Sumo Wrestler" that were not included in the film on Twitter. Here we see Kyokutenho, Kyokushuho, and loveable Asahisho fooling around in the heya in 2008? 2009? Just had to make a minor edit...

I'll take the salt for my personal use on the dohyo in exchange for the towel.

Kyokushuho to the rescue. Thus, a lesson in humility and modesty.

Hakuho helping a campain in Osaki-city (where he is treasure-(PR)ambassador) against those many frauds (starting with bank transfer scam): The poster titled "Eradicate fraud" with his sharp look, demanding "Wait, that's fraud." - to stop the elderly who are about to transfer their savings to a swindler.

On the 24th of August, Hakuho gave a one and a half hour lecture in front of about 600 Nagoya City high school students at Nagoya Noh Theater. The event was organized by local social service organizations.

He spoke of hardships when he came the first time to Japan, even crying three times on his first day there, but knew he's going to get stronger through keiko and thus persevered.

He also mentioned his father's role in winning the olympic, and his failures to be yokozuna in 2006, and how grateful he was to have so many supported him when he was injured.

His current goal is to still be a yokozuna in 2020, so he's able to do a ring entering ceremony at Tokyo Olympics. It is so he's able to stand together with his father's record.

(From Mainichi)

The oyakata as the show-master first presents his rikishi, then the gymnastics and of course he didn't forget the usual PR for the heya. esp. to call for all kids with interest in sumo to join the heya

Still a rikishi, though his intai press conference was promised:
Wakanosato in his hometown talked yesterday about his sumo life, about 800 were in the hall to listen to his amusing lesson about watching sumo.
"Frankly, I still want to continue doing sumo, but there is the banzuke ... I'm troubled."
