Tamanoumi pics overview

Recommended Posts

On the 11th 50 years ago, active yokozuna Tamanoumi died. Many articles commemorated it, Nikkan had a whole series (Nikkan now has joined the papers for which you need to register to read the articles - so far most of them for free, but usually those will become rare)

I saw that too but figured since when the NHK announcers talk to/about him it sounds like they're saying Kitanoumi anyway.  I guess they're interchangeable.
