I think I saw Kyokushuzan also among the rikishi crowd from his ichimon 
preparing the strings of the tsuna for Hakuho.
The one to put on for the dohyo-iri (NHK news at noon with Tsuna-uchi 
1-2-3: Hi-Fu-Mi).
I wonder if a retired rikishi usually takes part in that.
And I somewhat missed the exact present intermediate status of 
Kyokushuzan. He won't stay in the kyokai, so he's no oyakata - but is he 
already out of the kyokai ?
Apparently not as he was allowed to do tsuna-uchi help.
