Yokozunas Asashoryu and Hakuho visited Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama at his official residence on Thursday to thank him for watching them last month on the final day of the autumn tournament.
The two grand champions were accompanied by Japan Sumo Association President Musashigawa. Entering the official residence, the two yokozunas looked a little nervous. During their 10-minute meeting, Hatoyama encouraged the two wrestlers to liven up the sumo dohyo even more. Hakuho replied that he wants to win the yearend tournament in Kyushu.
Asashoryu invited the prime minister to visit Mongolia and have some horse-milk alcohol.© Wire reports
