I'd like to make good use of my 10 years of experience in Ozumo," said the 33 year old veteran who finally made it to Makuuchi after 10 years only to technically drop all the way to Makushita and retirement in 2 basho. He has been working in the family business since May and intends to take over the management from his father in the future.

Hitachigo and Fujitaisei on the 25th&26th last month visited several nursery schools and other facilities in Ogano-town and Chichibu-city. Ogano local ex-Tsurugidake had planned the thing: he now runs the family ryokan and wants to give something back to the locals who had given him a kesho-mawashi etc.

Ex-Tsurugidake, MIYAMOTO Kazuteru has been running the family Ryokan in Chichibu, Saitama, as the twelfth generation owner.  A display of his kesho mawashi and other items on display there.

Ex-Tsurugidake as the 12th head of the Miyamoto family that runs for 200years the Farmer's Mansion Miyamoto house onsen ryokan was in the focus of an article today. http://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXKZO38413450Q8A131C1H91A00/

Photo shoot there with the owner is a must for sumo fan guests from abroad.

They have a beautiful site with rich contents http://www.miyamotoke.jp/

and much media coverage http://www.miyamotoke.jp/about/media.php

For a few years now they have focused on attracting foreign guests. For once with rikishi yutaka - e.g. Hakuho sent Miyamoto some of the cloth he ordered - only makuuchi rikishi are allowed to do that (samples: http://www.sumoforum.net/forums/topic/37792-oh-sumo-exhibition-overview/?do=findComment&comment=365517)

and with the sumo rotemburo - with full house "banner" http://www.miyamotoke.jp/bath/sumo.php

full house is easy - they have only 6 rooms

Tsurugidake had continued to do sumo in spite of 4 times suffering from retinal detachment, and when he at last made it to makuuchi - the slowest ever - he had a relapse a few months later and for this 5th detachment got told that he'd definitely lose eyesight if he continues. He still keeps this spirit of never giving up and when his father's physical condition deteriorated with old age, he replaced him as the managing director of Miyamoto Manor Group.
