Not in the shoes of a rikishi

Recommended Posts

The son of Takanohana, Yuuichi Hanada (21) will appear (with 20 others) on Sanma's job change show special on NTV Oct. 10th, 19:56~22:54 『明石家さんまの転職DE天職』(あかしやさんまのてんしょくでてんしょく)

to promote his shoes.

Actually to talk about why he didn't go into sumo and rather studied shoe making in Italy for 3 years, after leaving home at age 15 to study in the US. http://news.mynavi.jp/news/2016/10/06/024/

He might have decided against sumo as a career, but to judge from the second photo in the OP he seems to have mastered the traditional rikishi art of looking very uncomfortable in a suit.

He was on promotion tour again (I hate those mini-size videos), on the show "Another GuySky": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nm27LcbnpQ

The mass of videos on other video sites may have a better one: https://www.google.de/search?q=アナザースカイ+170331&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=P_LfWMGvNsGhsAGPoK6gDA

Yuuichi Hanada (21) was on TV again and also is loved by the tabloids. Recently my sumo search is full of Josei7 and WeeklyPost sumo related rumor articles. This one may even leave the off-topic realm if it becomes true: he is dating A.ko Yagi (22), the daughter of ex-Fujinoshin, Jinmaku-oyakata of Kokonoe-beya, Takasago-ichimon of Hakkaku-rijicho. Taka denies that they are nearly married, but says they likely will be in the future. Seen as having a possible influence to get more support for Taka's next run for riji-cho (he had denied he will go for another election though - he may wait till they all proclaim him unanimously). http://www.news-postseven.com/archives/20170426_527315.html

In any case, even if Taka's son refused to follow in the footsteps of a rikishi, he may stay connected to the sumo world - and we might have a future hype of triple Kotokamatani dimensions if HIS son should start to do wampaku sumo.

Yuichi

his rumored girl

And then we also have Chiyonofuji's model daughter as a darling on TV - she surely won't marry into the sumo world, but who knows what her children will do.

Yuuichi Hanada is now definitely a member of the entertainment world - the shoes seem to only have been a step to enter there. His new radio show started yesterday, Mondays 19:15h JST on TBS radio: Yuuichi Hanada - First Step. He also crowds my news check, which to my delight now shows jiji, nikkan and daily again in the robot search. Today his first geinou event, where he denied having a girlfriend. https://www.jiji.com/jc/article?k=g170684 -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4aFpeIkweI

Shoemaker Hanada keeps advancing massively into the geinou world. He was in Tetsuko's heya yesterday, where he also talked about his kesho mawashi design https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-k4xUxRrs8&t=18m37s

(likely for longer: http://video.9tsu.com/videos/view?vid=112358)

he also designed (with his sign) the dragon-type kesho mawashi of Takakeisho and Takagenji (in Caduceus style), sponsored by the Ryuujin 龍神 (shrine dragon deity) 総宮社 souguu-sha, the shrine in Kyoto where Takanohana-beya stays for Haru

Another one for Takagenji is shown as well: showing a taka - the sponsor is game maker Quintet

And his first book "Namaiki" - Impertinent - went on sale today

Obviously Yuuichi didn't have a girlfriend because he already was married. Yesterday Hanada mentioned it on his radio show "BTW, I am married" - and claimed that his wife is just a member of the public, but apparently it is the daughter of Jinmaku. http://www.sponichi.co.jp/entertainment/news/2017/10/31/kiji/20171030s00041000358000c.html

Hanada was made "Best Shinist 2017" - not for shoes that shine but teeth - the first to get this new award from Oral care company Charion.

There he talked about his marriage since June and his cheat about it in the media

I expected to have another use for this thread - today the sumo news search is flooded with the news of her marriage

On a Tokyo MX program yesterday, talento Shinji Uchiyama (36)  talked about having being a step away from entering a heya at age 15, 16. He was at keiko at a heya and ate the chanko, and got encouraged to enter by a heya related person: "Here you can eat this delicious food and you can get a lot of money, the sumo world is fine." But a new recruit told him: "Better give it up. Actually, I'll also be escaping tonight, so it's absolutely better not to enter." http://www.sanspo.com/geino/news/20180424/geo18042421320031-n1.html

geo18042421320031-m1.jpg

this was about the news from a radio show from the 17th ( that episode hasn't made it to the channel) where Takatoriki had talked about the cruel keiko when he entered, at the time where heya where more severe  than the military. 100 new recruits a year, but 70 did quit within a year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7LLy39nizI&t=16m10s

The eldest and traitorous to grandpa Taiho of the 4 Nayas has changed from Real Japan pro wrestling to DDT. He had surpassed the number of fights for a year within the last 3 months.

maybe he sensed that a beard would not be allowed in sumo

The Georgian Kokkai often used to sport a beard, though it’s possible he did shave and it had just grown back by the time of his bout.

Kokkai claimed to have a skin reaction to shaving.  He would often go several days without shaving.  The kyokai eventually started cracking down on him.

Sounds familiar. I used to get grief if I went a day or two without shaving and I was pretty baby faced with light stubble. Facial hair is not popular in Japan.
