Back in 1998, we had a great Mailing List dinner at his chanko place in Ryogoku.

Another former rikishi gone before they’re truly old. 60 is nothing.

It’s been a rough six months for ex-Terao, losing both of his brothers. :(

The "forgotten man" of the three Fukuzono brothers - he was promoted to juryo simultaneously with Sakahoko but never made it higher than Juryo 2 while his younger brothers went onto makuuchi fame and fortune - he suffered a shoulder injury that held him back. He was Kakureizan as a sekitori but finished his career as Tsurunofuji.
