I’m doing a sit down interview with Tochinoshin tomorrow so if anyone has any interesting questions they want asked let me know in the next few hours.

Given his experience (& Chiyokuni), what would be his recommended period away from the dohyo to recuperate from career threatening injuries?

Ishiura at a talk-show mentioned several controversial figures, to the delight of the audience:

- as his most important Tottori Johoku sempai: Kotomitsuki, ousted for the baseball gambling scandal

- as his teacher at the Nichidai sumo club: the present Nichidai riji-cho Tanaka, who is in the midst of the amefuto foul play scandal, which is all over the media for many weeks now

- and about his English language skills due to his studies in Australia, asked if that isn't rare for a rikishi: "(Otherwise) just Osunaarashi." http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2018/06/11/kiji/20180611s00005000065000c.html

He owns the McLaren or is just posing next to it? He’s not allowed to drive it and I can’t imagine he’s earned enough disposable income in his career to splash out on such extravagances!

He was sponsored by Mclaren Tokyo, so probably something to do with that

Takasago-beya seems to specialize in visiting care facilities rather than schools - and especially heya manager Matsuda (Ichinoya) does. The video of a visit after the Haru basho appeared now - Ichinoya on March 26th was at the Osaka retirement home in Matsubara-city with Asakoki and Asanojo - and did first of all sing the jinku that can be heard during the whole video

presenting sumo and doing it also with staff members, hugging and of course chanko for all

Kakuryu as the head of the rikishi-kai was at the opening of a doyho in Aizu Wakamatsu. The rikishi-kai had donated 12 million yen to aid the construction (for a total of 25 million yen) of a sumo ground in the 3/11 disaster stricken Fukushima area, the 3rd dohyo of this kind, after one in Iwate and one in Miyagi. Kimura Ginjiro did the sacred part of the ceremony.
