Kakuryu Proud Father of Three

Taking part in NHK’s “Special Basho” broadcast from a remote location, Yokozuna Kakuryu announced his second daughter (third child) was born this past April. The proud father fielded questions from NHK announcer Ota Masahide during the end of the program.

“Last month, in the midst of these difficult times, my third child was born. I’ve been celebrating with my family. My spare time is usually taken up with regional tours etc., so I’m sure glad (to be home with them),” said Kakuryu. The baby’s name is Enhelen.

“I’ve been passing the time playing with the kids and feeding the little ones,” said the Yokozuna, who is also taking his time with basic training and looking forward to his chance at a 7th top division championship in July.
