An Ichinoya activities thread might still be interesting, I write about his activities regularly in other threads, a digest

On the 29th, Asanojo, Asadaimon and Asanoshima with yobidashi Rikinojo, led by Takasago-beya manager Matsuda (Ichinoya) were at a primary school in Chigasaki.

Rikinojo showed a taiko performance, Ichinoya explained about sumo history and  was gyoji

Asanoyama on the 27th gave the address at the yearly cheer-up meeting for rikishi with university background, held  by the West Japan student sumo federation, as the representative of the about 40 rikishi (on his right the heya manager ex-Ichinoya, who wrote something about Einstein for graduation from Ryukyu university and was about to become a high school teacher of physics).

Maybe the choice of the next shisho is causing Ichinoya to end his tenure as heya manager end of the year, when he turns 60

Ex-Ichinoya,Takasago-beya manager till the end of this year (when he reaches kanreki), did a lecture today with JACSHA composer Nomura at the Sumidagawa Sumi-yume art project symposium on Tanabata - https://sumiyume.jp/event/tanabata2020/, part of events to celebrate the birth of Hokusai 260 years ago

Ichinoya talks about the first Takasago Uragoro (Takamiyama), who created the present Takasago-beya and reorganized the sumo organization close to the present form.

Ever heard of JACSHA? 日本相撲聞芸術作曲家協議会 - Japan Association of Composers for Sumo Hearing Arts http://jacsha.com/ - pronounced jakusha, which as an ordinary word means weak and vulnerable persons 弱者

I noticed them today when they posted a video on their YT channel, shiko 四股1000. Shiko Ichinoya style, who taught them - on the right with the 3 members:

Vol. 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dK6_4riWiyA&t=10m - including gonin-gakari bouts of the participants with Ichinoya at 40m 

Ex-Ichinoya and Kunio appear on Aug. 20th in the Miyazaki pref. arts centre and on the 21st in Miyakonojo, in "Let's Wa no oto - Japanese trad. music and sumo" wanooto_sumou-1.pdf, Ichinoya sings jinku, Kunio does yobiage, ki clapping and taiko. https://miyazaki-ac.jp/event/2022/7891/

Afterwards a new part of the folk ballad about the 1st Takasago is performed for the first time, Ichinoya is involved in creating the work. First he and the composer talk about it. A similar talk from Dec. 2020

On 25/12/2022 at 12:04, Akinomaki said:

Matsuda-san (Ichinoya, turns 62 in a few days) is now heya advisor and on the 21st at the year end meeting of the Toyoma pref. citizens living in Tokyo talked about Asanoyama. "It was going too well for him and he could have ended up a mediocre rikishi. I think god provided this ordeal as a challenge for him." In the end Ichinoya sang a jinku about Toyama pref. rikishi, with "yokozuna mezase, Asanoyama yo" - aim for yokozuna.

The head of the Asanoyama Tokyo koenkai hopes for a juryo yusho next basho - the one Asanoyama hasn't won yet (of the divisions he was in so far, starting in sandanme)

63 next week.  Never over ~100 kg when active, so he's shriveled naturally.  Also, eighteen years in Jonidan would take a lot out of you.
