I always found the shinkansen seats (regular non-reserved seats) a little wider & more comfortable than airline seats (economy class). If they could ride in the green car (first class seats on the bullet train), those'd be compareable to business class seats on an airliner.

was talking to the manager of Tamanoi today and asked after the possibility of Tamanoi starting a foreign style koen-kai (siimilar to the Sadogatake version) to take care of a few Qs I received on this subject (R-san / M-san etc)

He said there were no immediate plans but he would consider it and post on the blog in the next few days - to let us all know.

Also got invited to a sumo demo day Sat - all the local JHS kids - whoop me anyway so will but watch.

Anyone else in the area - feel free to drop by.

;-)

I dropped into T-shirt-Ya today. Spoke to the two fellas that spent a little time with the Tamanoi crew. They showed me the pics on their PC of the Tamanoi kids going thru all the merchandise, and their cell phone cam pics of their trip to the Kokugikan. They recommended the tee Tochiazuma bought. I didn't bite, but their stuff looked pretty good. They do ship all over Japan (and nearby Asian locations such as Taiwan or Hong Kong) for those into their style.

Tamanoi Beya Festival - 2

3b8c53bace2ee33f95e90f4d2f74f9.jpg

Good evening. This is Tooyama.

We were blessed with great weather from this morning.

As part of the commemorative event for the first anniversary of the moving of Tamanoi Beya,

we held a Tamanoi Beya Festival.

Pictures of the event has been updated to the Tamanoi Beya HP so

please go take a look.

This is the first time we have staged an event like this but we were able to do it in a grand style.

The success is due to the cooperation of the neighbors and the generous contributions of businesses.

We sincerely appreciate your help.

If the children can get involved with sumo in this way and

develop even a little bit of interest in the sport, I would be most pleased.

A sincere thank you for those of you that attended the event.

If there is an opportunity for an event like this again,

we will announce it at the web site.

So please make an effort to participate.

These guys are tough hombres. They are used to doing asa-geiko (by definition, in early mornings) in bitter cold keiko-ba.

What about yokozuna who has to do dohyo-iri outdoors at a shrine during the winter sometimes with snow falling. Asashoryu is at least from Mongolia and has experienced frigid weather. Think of Akebono and Musashimaru from sunny Hawaii.

Maybe they weren't that big after all. They were wearing those inflatable sumo suits--with insulation.

Hello! This is Tooyama.

December is already half over. In another half month, 2005 will have ended.

It is getting colder by the day and the pace of keiko in preparations for Hatsu Basho

is intensifying.

The other day, we held something called the

I like Ikeda in the picture showing off his shirt, and the Tochiazuma jacket is awesome.

A cold mawashi sounds like alot of fun...espically when that is all you have on (Whistling...) he should try sleeping with it on to keep it warm...I am sure that it would be really comfortable :-(
