KONISHIKI activities

Recommended Posts

The threads on him are all too old, so I put this in a new one.

KONISHIKI met with the governor of Hokkaido on the 20th to exchange ideas. He was special guest at the HOKKAIDO & HAWAII Sister-state Party. http://sapporo.keizai.biz/headline/2694/

age is catching up with him a bit

An unusual sister-state match; Okinawa-Hawaii seems like a better fit.  Still, Sapporo-to-Honolulu "fact-finding mission" in January = shrewd Hokkaido politicians;-).

Hokkaido should be "sistered" to Alaska.

I have to say I never thought Konishiki would live long enough to get grey hair. And yet he will be 54 this month.

Grey? Looks turquoise to me. Last few times I've seen pics of him he had pink and then orange hair.

That said, I've no doubt he's bleaching and colouring his hair because he doesn't like being grey.

KONISHIKI on the 1st had the kick-off event for the Island Music Festival he produces and also performs at on stage. He's individually holding music events since 2004. Asked abut the scandals in ozumo: "I don't think about it at all." http://www.nikkansports.com/entertainment/news/201803010000639.html

What a great voice. Great to see him doing so well. I just wish I could understand Japanese, I'd love to hear what interesting things he has to say.

Dai-Superstars ex-Wakanohana III and Konishiki on a variety program Boiling Word 10 (source Miomio starts at 00:50) at Hanada's family home with wife and kids.  Konishiki and other celebrities visit for a Hawaiian barbecue with Konichan at the grill.  ADVISORY:  avoid watching on an empty stomach ;-)

Konishiki on the 8th was at the Heartful Festa in Okayama, part of the human rights week, and talked about his experience as a foreigner: "At first I didn't know how to use a Japanese style toilet. And the restaurants were small and I hit my head at the door."

"The arrangement of food and the etiquette - I have the feeling that Japanese culture has profound depth. I want to continue to tell people from abroad about the splendor of Japan." http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/culture/20181209-OYT1T50004.html

Like Taka officially a talento, KONISHIKI also on the 5th also handed out chanko nabe, with yaki soba, as encouragement to the people in Tateyama, Chiba, hit by typhoon no. 15 - the recent one was no. 19. He had stayed in the city with his band friends just as the typhoon passed through last month from the 8th to the 9th and had promised to come back. After the chanko he gave a Hawaiian musical performance. http://mainichi.jp/articles/20191005/k00/00m/040/251000c

Konishiki is in the news mainly for his barbecue business now. He sells his own brand of BBQ sauce https://konishiki.base.shop/items/30268828

Konishiki also was at the ceremony and has his BBQ booth at the festival (till the 16th).

Youtube randomly (ok maybe not randomly) recommended this to me, and it appears to not have been posted before:

Incidentally, is there a collated thread for Konishiki activities? I searched for it but the results got dated really quickly. I guess he's not really in the limelight much so it sort of makes sense that he doesn't.

Apparently there is also going to be an NHK feature on Konishiki, as detailed by the NSK Twitter:

A feature from 1984, way before he became ozeki
