Wakanosato Shinobu Biography

Wakanosato Shinobu is a famous Rikishi, who was born on July 10, 1976 in Japan. Wakanosato Shinobu (born Shinobu Kogawa, July 10, 1976) is a retired sumo wrestler from Hirosaki, Aomori, Japan. He made his debut in the top division in 1998, and his highest rank was sekiwake. He holds the record for the most consecutive tournaments ranked in the junior san’yaku ranks of sekiwake and komusubi (19 from 2002 until 2005). He won ten special prizes and was twice runner-up in a tournament. He earned two gold stars for defeating yokozuna at a maegashira rank. He had 1691 career bouts, sixth on the all-time list. He retired in 2015 and was a coach at Tagonoura stable, until opening his own Nishiiwa stable in February 2018. According to Astrologers, Wakanosato Shinobu's zodiac sign is Cancer.

Wakanosato was married in April 2004. His stablemaster reported that his bride weighed just 39 kg (86 lb; 6.1 st).

He entered the top makuuchi division for the first time in May 1998. He recorded his first kinboshi or gold star win against yokozuna Wakanohana in the November 1998 tournament, but the next day he broke his ankle in a match with Musōyama and had to miss the last day of the tournament and all of the next. He suffered a more serious injury in November 1999, rupturing anterior cruciate ligaments. He sat out two successive tournaments after having surgery and was demoted to the jūryō division . He won consecutive jūryō championships upon his comeback, in May and July 2000, and was promoted back to makuuchi in September. He quickly made the titled san’yaku ranks, making komusubi in November 2000 and recovering from 2–6 down to finish 9–6. As a result, he was promoted to sekiwake for the first time in January 2001.

In later years on the dohyō he again had injury problems, being forced to withdraw from his final san’yaku-ranked tournament in September 2005 and missing all of the next. He defeated yokozuna Asashōryū on the second day of the 2006 May tournament, his first kinboshi in 45 tournaments (only Kirinji, with 47 tournaments, has had a longer wait between kinboshi) but he could only manage a 6–9 record overall. He was then again forced to sit out all of the September 2006 tournament and fell to the second division once again. However, he made something of a comeback in May 2007, turning in a strong 10–5 record at maegashira 7. He won his 600th career bout in September 2007, and turned in another good performance in May 2008, again finishing on 10–5.

He first tried sumo in the third grade when he entered a competition for fourth graders and up and came in third. By middle school he was training every day at a sumo dojo. He met Takahanada (later the 64th yokozuna Takanohana) when a regional tour came to Hirozaki City, getting into the ring with him. He entered professional sumo in March 1992 after completing middle school, although he had been admitted to Hirosaki Jitsygyo High School.

As with many sumo wrestlers, he initially competed under his family name, Kogawa, but upon reaching the second highest jūryō division in November 1997 he was given the fighting name of Wakanosato, reminiscent of his stablemaster, former yokozuna Takanosato.

Following a 4–11 result in jūryō in July 2015 which guaranteed a further relegation to the makushita division, Wakanosato announced his retirement on 3 September. He told a press conference “I entered this career out of my love for sumo, and it has been enjoyable. I’m being sincere in saying I want to continue, but my body is not up to the task of matching my desire.” He had already purchased a toshiyori-kabu or elder stock in the Japan Sumo Association and is now known as Nishiiwa Oyakata. He initially worked at his old stable, now renamed Tagonoura. His official retirement ceremony or danpatsu-shiki was held at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan on 28 May 2016. Wakanosato’s application to open his own Nishiiwa stable was approved by the Sumo Association on 30 November 2017, and the stable opened on 1 February 2018. As of March 2019 it has six wrestlers, all in the lower divisions.
