He got local rice, peaches and cucumber as a gift and pledged to one day return as yokozuna. The mayor wants him to be a real hero the kids can dream about - the creator of Ultraman is from the city. o

Not hating on his goals there, but those seem awfully unambitious compared to what you'd expect a hot prospect to say!

Looks like that's the Nishonoseki style. Modest and reasonable, with an eye on what happened with rival prospect Hakuoho.

I think it's refreshing that he's leaving the "I aim for Dai-Yokozuna!" for new Maezumo kids from Shimogo Junior High.  Better to underpromise and overperform.

The heya will have a training camp in Ogano for 10 days in early June at the Chichibu Furusato-mura of Miyamoto https://www.miyamotoke.jp/english/, the first sumo related event there and for it a dohyo with roof will be installed.

Endo was at the office of the local Hokkoku shimbun and talked about his near future - of course he won't retire: "I want to do my best as long as I can".

Was there some talk here recently that he hated sumo? "I'm happy that I can do the thing I love (sumo) to have a meal/for a living"
