The kanji for Kinbozan are 金峰山  = Gold Mountain-top (I think)

It's also the name of a mountain in Kumamoto.

...and another mountain in Yamanashi

Another Japanese-mountain-name-based in sumo after Mitakeumi.

Another one after Kinbozan and Mitakeumi?

His "family" name is given as "Yersin" at this link, not "Ersin" that's in the DB.  While there is a "ye" kana, it's generally been replaced with just "e" since that's what happened to the syllable in general.  If the only reporting we had before was his name in kana, then we wouldn't have known about the initial 'y'.

John Gunning visited Nihon University when he was still an amateur, and got confirmation from the man himself that it is indeed 'Yersin'

The Japanese and English sites disagree as sometimes happens with foreign rikishi. Usually they don't bother with the shikona on the English side until the rikishi is involved in mae-zumo.

The database has ASGAKHAD Altan-Ochir which looks much more likely to be accurate. Then again it has his highest rank as 'Gyoji'...

Well there's maezumo on the schedule for tomorrow, which implies that at least one banzuke-gai rikishi has been rustled up - Suguro is in the basho proper as a tsukedashi, the foreigners are visa-delayed until January, and Saito and Harao are in the same heya.

I remember Ebisu beer from watching Gaki no Tsukai years back, these random curiosities get stuck in my memory. (Laughing...)

Jeez.  Didn't one  of the foreigners already wait three years?  Poor kid.

Masakifuji, rather than Masafuji.

Hoshinofuji joined ozumo back in March but due to some injury he couldn't do maezumo, so he's been banzuke-gai since. Chiyotaiko last fought in that same basho, before three consecutive kyujo basho dropped him off the banzuke. Three and done for him here, much to the amusement of shimpans Tomozuna and Kokonoe who couldn't keep a straight face as he diligently went back up for the third time.

Harao/Aoifuji must have been the one we saw with the bandaged foot at the shindeshi-kensa, it's still wrapped here but obviously not bad enough to prevent his participation.

I missed it until the other day, but a new tokoyama joined Kasugano-beya ahead of this basho, 18-year-old Tokotochi (床栃), who turns out to be the younger brother of Makushita rikishi Tsukahara.

Tokotochi was involved in a sumo club during elementary school, but switched to baseball from junior high school onwards. Seeing his brother's efforts in sumo rekindled his interest, so he dropped out of high school and joined him in Kasugano-beya, with the dream of preparing his oichomage if and when he becomes a sekitori. For now, he is practising regular chonmage on the many rikishi at the heya, including his older brother.
