Kisenosato Retires

Kisenosato Retires

Update on the blog I posted ages ago about Kisenosato…

“Yokozuna Kisenosato retires, citing injury struggles, leaving no Japanese at top sumo rank.”

Such a man, with such fighting spirit, retires…and when he does it seems something miraculous has happened to his face!

For a long time he has suffered damage to his Career Palace (centre of forehead). See this closeup…


Then all of a sudden the dark patch and scarring seems to disappear overnight:

Obviously it’s still there, but the colourand qi has changed.

Kisenosato has found his calling and with those phoenix eyes I would not be surprised if he becomes Japan’s most important sumo official within a very short time.
