私がカレーが好きな事を知り、コニちゃんのお手製のカレーを用意してくれていて  本当に美味しかったです♪ありがとうコニちゃん。


Even if it is not an active sumo wrestler, the great Konishiki measurement was the most rewarding of all the people I have ever measured (^ ∇ ^) And when I was a child, I grew up watching Konishiki on TV, and when I was measuring Koni-chan, I was deeply moved. The tough legs that support the body have a history that cannot be expressed in words. Konishiki is a person who can talk from the same point of view, and everyone can interact with each other without feeling the wall. The environment in which Konishiki grew up, the values ​​he felt from an early age, his family love, and the fact that he left his home country at the age of 18 and took on the challenge in a foreign country, Ozeki, the first foreign wrestler after a fierce and difficult life. You can see why he is liked by a charming character who likes life songs that have produced great results. I found out that I like curry and prepared Konishiki's homemade curry, which was really delicious ♪ Thank you Konishiki.
