Asashoryu Hand Print, Renge-in Tamana 熊本

Asashoryu Hand Print, Renge-in Tamana 熊本
There were several hand prints from famous sumo wrestlers on the Okuno-in. I think this one says Asashoryu (朝青龍), the retired Mongolian yokozuna. He was forced to retire by the Japan Sumo Association after getting into a fight outside a Tokyo bar. He had the best record in sumo since Chiyonofuji, and is the only yokozuna to win all 6 tounaments in one year.
