Strange picture. The couple is holding up glasses as if they're going to toast, Tochinoshin doesn't and his hands aren't visible, they seem to be stuck under the table with not enough room for them. The perspective in the picture looks off, it doesn't look like a still but a fake.

Yaocho in photos now..

Who’s passing the brown envelope? :-D

All other hands are visible or on the wrong side.

He’s probably using his skills in «expert analysis» right now to show how this picture is proof of bias against foreign rikishi.

I think I see Tochinoshin's glass, distorted as through a lens, behind the pitcher.

Of course, if we're going all conspiracy-theory, let me say that "no human being would stack cookies that way ... "

Look again. Tochinoshin's glass is the other side of the jug, distorted by the glass of the jug.

She might be a hafu.

I thought that was a rather offensive term for bi-racial...but perhaps I'm misremembering that.

Mentioning Takayasu, but not yet Mitakeumi.

In Taiho's days it wasn't fashionable to mention it though.

It's interesting that there is no Japanese counterpart Wikipedia page.

It still is, to a lesser extent perhaps, but definitely still is.. Back in the day, many top level guys hid their ancestry, especially if it was Korean or Chinese. Even a Yokozuna (not Taihou) did. And there was Rikidouzan..
