Re: Kirishima Photo-album

I unfortunatly didn't see the album yet. I only got the "advertisement
pamphlet" (?) from my Japanese bookstore with four photos on it. I also
saw some photos of it in the video I got recently. My first impression
has not been to good, because they only showed photos that have not much
to do with the idea I have about Kirishima. Besides, Kirishima just
posing for a photo and doing real sumo is not quite the same. I hope
the other photo will be a little more artistic.
I ordered the book (as a kind of support to Kirishima) and should get it
in a couple of weeks. I'll tell you if it is worth anything.
Today our president Chirac is going to see Sumo in Kyushu, and before
that going to visit a Chanko restaurant. I hope he will put in a word
for Kirishima... (I wrote him some weeks ago to let him know about
Kirishima's book, hoping it will make him a little aware of Kirishima...
-- the Japanese editor insisted upon my doing it and was quite excited
about it ! Though, I can't be too optimistical about it myself.)
