Is that a mustache-chin whisker combination I see in one of his sumo matches?  Didn't know that was allowed.

Great photos.  Sad perhaps that his exit from sumo tarnished his reputation but no doubt he was a superb Yokozuna.

rumors

On 22/08/2005 at 05:31, Jonosuke said:

Parentage Speculation 3:

Takanohana oyakata is not a son of Futagoyama oyakata but a son of Wajima.

The theory for this one goes like this:

It was Wajima who introduced the two (Ozeki Takanohana and Noriko) together as he "knew" both well. Apparently some believes he knew Noriko too well.

On 22/08/2005 at 05:31, Jonosuke said:

Former wife of Futagoyama oyakata, Noriko Fujita, 57, has kept her silence since his passing but it is now reported that "Fujin Koron", women's magazine in Japan will be publishing her "diary" since the day of the funeral.

She also says she kept the oyakata's nails and hair for DNS testing in case some disputes arose regarding the parentage of Masaru Hanada and Takanohana oyakata.

Certain speculations about the Hanada family parentage have been rampant in Japanese web sites but this is the first time an established press has referred to this. Since I always figured them to be without any substance, l did not report them here but since they are out now, you might as well know about them too.

Parentage Speculation 1:

Futagoyama Oyakata was not the youngest brother of former Yokozuna Wakanohana I but was in fact his son.

Parentage Speculation 2:

Masaru Hanada was a son of Wakanohana I not Futagoyama oyakata

Some friends who were interested in Japanese culture suggested that I watch a sumo digest show broadcast on a local Los Angeles channel. One day, I did and the very first rikishi I ever saw was Wajima. I was greatly impressed with his presence on the dohyo. Although I knew nothing about him, he looked like a champion. That particular match started the great appreciation of sumo I've had for many years. If someone asks me how I got interested in sumo, I say that it began with Wajima.

That looks more like Taka I to me...

Of course, that goes with the "3 together at dates" period, but Nikkan used one without Wajima in the pic.
