Musashimaru Documentaries/Promotions?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know of any documentaries or in-depth promotions on Musashimaru? I want to know more about him and see more footage of not only his matches, but his training and his time as Yokozuna. But there doesn’t seem to be much out there....surely he must have been filmed a great deal while he was Yokozuna?

Try the following search:

It won't give you anything in English, but it will whet your appetite for footage of his matches and a little more.

Thank you so much Amamaniac!! A treasure trove of footage, awesome! If you come across any more, please add to the thread. Thanks again.

Between you and me, I have the impression that Musashimaru is a reserved man of few words.  Whenever I see Westerners (with film crews) visit his stable, it is Konoshiki who ends up answering most, if not all, of the questions.  At some point, I did see a feature in which Musashimaru actually engages with someone allowing them to see him interact with his wife and young son.  Sadly, I no longer remember what that video was or where it can be found.  I'll keep my eyes open. (Smokingpipe...) 

That being said, you should check out Akinomaki's thread "It's a sumo world in Kawasaki".

Thank you! I will definitely check out this thread.

I agree, he even almost seems shy. I have seen a couple of the vids you mentioned where Konishiki does most of the talking, but I guess I just figured it was because Konishiki loved to talk haha.

Oh wow, that video of him and his family sounds priceless! If you ever do come across it again, please post. Thanks again Amamaniac.
