Thank you for sharing this.

My pleasure. He's a very honest character, Furiwake-oyakata, eh?

I always liked him. When he was active and after that. What I also like about him is that he is seeking to do well without aiming to be perfect.
I wish more people had his sense of perspective and readiness for fun and play.

When I first saw his picture and then watched videos of him (as oyakata) he reminded me of the comic actor Hiromasa Taguchi (the fat dance student in Shall We Dance).  Furiwake seems able to take off the hinkaku-coat and show you his real character now and again.

I briefly spotted some rikishi at Twin Ring Motegi on the MotoGP coverage today. I didn't get a long enough glimpse at the face to ID the one who was taking photos down at the pit wall. Did anyone happen to catch who it was?

A very nice way to put it.

We have had great weather coinciding exactly with the jungyo's arrival. The days previous had been very grey and blustery, but they brought the sunshine. In Japan it is well-known that Okinawa is the prefecture receiving the least amount of yearly sunshine.

Sorry for dragging this up from way back, but is the left side what became of the cat?!

And did he say "Itadaki-masu!" when it did?
