Among the kids the sons of his older sister: in his arm during the dohyo-iri the one born in June, at keiko and kawaigari (in the real sense of the word) the eldest, age 4. Most likely the one he's holding in the pic below, not mentioned in the captions though. http://www.daily.co.jp/general/2016/10/16/0009586235.shtml

Yes, Goeido ordered one of these from the Internet but was unfortunately sent the lower model with the attachments at waist level rather than neck level. (Unfortunately the Kyokai has banned that model and he won't be able to use it at the basho...)

Takanohana jungyo boss has been making his presence evident. Yesterday, he gave some "advice" to Goueidou. While the latter was training with Tochinoshin,Takanohana told him that in order to get stronger, he must firmly get a good hold on his opponent.  Goueidou was leaning with his head against the very powerful Tochinoshin as a lot of opponents do, keeping him at bay. After that, Goueidou started getting close inside and getting a hold on Tochinoshin. "It's important to be able to counterattack from a disadvantageous position, so.. He gave me some good advice during the Natsu jungyo as well, so I am very grateful.." said Goueidou.

Then he turned to Kisenosato, who was facing Tochiouzan (9-1) and gave him a lot of loud  "advice" as well. "That's the way he criticizes. We really don't have many opportunities to talk, so.." explained Kisenosato.

Hakuhou is back. He joined the jungyo in Kyoto as promised yesterday. As he showed up for morning keiko he was cheered on by the fans. "I was happy to hear the fans cheer for me," he said, happily. He did not mount the dohyo but did the Yokozuna dohyo-iri and some exercises and shiko, sweating well. He can reach 1000 wins in Kyushu. "As it is the last basho of the year, I'd like to end it with a smile," he said.

We have a new similar type of restaurant named Kula that opened two locations in the Dallas / Forth Worth metro area in July and August. They call them revolving sushi bars here. The food is good but the price can add up fast before you even realize it. I can't imagine how much Chiyomaru's total bill was when he was done.... :-O

From moto-Chiyotaikai's twitter feed, I am guessing this tab was picked up by the local koenkai chairman(?).

the diners were Kokonoe oyakata, Chiyoo, Chiyomaru, Chiyonoumi and 4 other heya rikishi.

Chiyomaru was probably posing with the total stack of everyone's glutton.

The most expensive plate at most kaitenzushi places is ¥500, with many at ¥100, so that stack is less than you might think.  My fiancée and I could usually eat for under ¥2000.

They are $2.25 per plate here. Multiply that by 15-20 plates. I'm only responsible for 5 of those plates. My 44 kg, 145 cm wife is responsible for the rest of them. :-O

Approx 150 plates for a meal costing close to 200,000 JPY would be my guess. 

 

A great selection of pictures and great way to present it with spoiler tabs so on. I would appreciate other posters realizing it is the way to go.
