On Feb. 15th, 3 koenkai for Endo alone will start. In Kanagawa city one from his middle and one from his high school, plus a Nichidai supporters from Ishikawa pref. club – about 260 members for the 3. So far only one from his (and the oyakata's) home town of Anamizu for Oitekaze-beya and especially Endo exists.

Endo on the 14th visited the prefectural office of his home prefecture Ishikawa – it was one year since his start in ozumo was announced. Today an encouragement party of his 3 new koenkai was held in Kanazawa, with the about 260 supporters. The meeting for establishing the 3 koenkai was held before that, one each for middle school, high school and university connected supporters.

He got 5 cardboard boxes full of chocolate for Valentine Day, many already arrived the days before.

The party celebrating Ichinojo's juryo promotion and yusho was held on the 8th in a hotel in Tokyo. Among the about 200 guests were Takanohana-oyakata and Izutsu-oyakata and his Tottori High Mongolian sempai Takanoiwa and Terunofuji.
"Aiming for yokozuna in the future", next goal is makuuchi.

About 800 at the promotion party for Kakuryu - his next goal is a yokozuna yusho.
He had a triumphant return to Mongolia after the Natsu basho.

Both pledged to do their best for a return of Takayasu to the higher ranks, after a 6-9 at m8. Last year in Nagoya he got the shukun-sho.

Looking at this one reminded me to Kyokutaisei's documentary, how much Asahisho cared for him since the beginning. It's only right that he celebrated with his senior by his side.

Senior by three months B-)

The party to celebrate the juryo promotion of Amakaze (ex-Kawanari) was held in his hometown Kotohira, 160 schoolmates etc. were in the hotel. Oguruma-oyakata (ex-ozeki Kotokaze) wants to give him his old shikona if he makes it to the higher ranks (ozeki or also less ?), i. e. the Koto from Kotohira, from which broader region (old name Sanuki, now mainly used in Sanuki-udon, the local noodle specialty) he said the "Koto-" shikona originate.

An encouragement party for Endo by his personal Osaka koenkai, Fuji-no-kai (the flower Fuji is the "-do" in Endo).
Endo tried to have an oicho-mage made, but his hair was not long enough: "at the Natsu basho" (last chance to get a chon-mage Endo strap?)
