> Hi folks,
> This morning as I was on Ryogoku station platform I saw none other than
> Kyokutenzan, looking large, fit,  and otherwise much the same as he was
> when he had his private haircut and left for Germany. I said in
> Japanese "Welcome back!" and he slowly looked down (to about half his
> height) and said the equivalent of  "Oh - I can't believe this!" We
> chatted amicably until the Chiba-bound train arrived and he got on it:
> I was going the opposite way, to central Tokyo, to my work. He said the
> guys had got back from the jungyo the day before and he had been
> drinking with them till late. I can certainly relate to that....
