Snack like a pro

This is my favorite part of title matches - food! It’s often overlooked because stronger players are too interested in the game and weaker players fall asleep. So I decided to make a thread about it. I’m not good with Japanese so probably I’m not going to attempt translate specific meal names.

Today we had Shibano Toramaru vs Iyama Yuta Oza title game 3.

Lunch, left (first) - Iyama, right (second) - Shibano

Snack. Iyama (first) - fruits, hot coffee. Shibano (second) - shingen peach(?), iced coffee.

They are champions, famous people, right?
So I suppose there’s some interest also on this part of their life, but when I see articles about this kind of details I always wonder if we could also know the brand of their underwear! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

In earlier times, students of many disciplines would even go as far as learning how their masters go to the bathroom, to copy every aspect of their life as fully as possible.

You’re kidding me (pun intended, PG filter applied).

Gosei today between Hane Naoki Gosei and Ichiriki Ryo 8 dan. Looks pretty. I’m not even sure what most of these are.

It’s spelt nigirizushi rather than nigirisushi because Japanese modifies the connecting consonants in compound words.

I’d always wondered that. My assumption was that “sushi” was an abbreviated Romanization adapted from nigirizushi, the actual term in Japanese (since English is all about shortening words.)

@bugcat is right, this phenomenon is called Rendaku.

I find this pretty ironic.

Shushi is the Japanese word for seed, nut or pit.
