Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

Recommended Posts

Hak looks a bit nervous, hey this is a nice bird but you can have it back now. The first pic is like when you hear a joke and don't get it, but kind of laugh with everyone else.

why experienced mongolians may be apprehensive when near raptors

especially naked mongolians : )

Amuuru and Oonoshou (who was injured today and is probably out of the basho):

This thread was a great idea. I have to admit, though, some rikishi I've been watching for years, I didn't recognize...

because they were smiling.

EDIT: Do I even want to see a picture of Kisenosato smiling, or is that weird and scary?

I love the funny pictures in Aminishiki's blog. I don't know the name of the rikishi who is often in the background leaning forward a bit with a peculiar dazed expression on his face... hilarious.

Maybe you mean Satoyama?

Could be, except that he's in a different heya and in the official pictures he is much more serious-looking. I think it may be Terutsuyoshi.

Definitely Satoyama, one of the few hirsute rikishi AND one of the few smaller rikishi.

Satoyama is almost as much of a clown as Aminishiki. He's great in those photos!

Well this isn't a funny photo of Kyokutenho but I ran across a fan who is sad he is gone.

OMG, is that Ichinojo? (I mean, the guy Terunofuji is mounting)

I can't get over how young ex-Chiyotaikai looks! Holy broccoli. He could pass for maybe 23-24.

Kotooshu looks like he could still go a few bouts.

It's always wonderful to see these people out of context. It just adds to the enjoyment factor.

What kind of bath is that? Sulphur?

Well all the onsen have various minerals, not sure if any are specifically sulfur, all onsen must have sulfur being volcanic?

From Aminishiki's blog a few months ago

That IS weird and scary!

I saw him at some event handing out food and he was very nice and smiled. Very strange for us to see! But after that day I thought he was a nice guy under the image they keep by the dohyo.

The english Wikipedia article on onsens suggests that some can have higher concentration of a particular mineral - be it sulphur or iron or whatever.

I went to one in Nozawa-onsen that was a distinct milky blue colour and smelled of sulphur. None of the other nearby onsens had this characteristic.
