Chiyonokuni Toshiki (千代の国 憲輝) is a Japanese former professional sumo wrestler from Iga, Mie.


Making his professional debut in May 2006, he reached the top makuuchi division for the first time in January 2012.

He made his professional debut in May 2006.

Though he recorded many winning tournaments in his career in the unsalaried ranks, he also missed four tournaments in this span, which would demote him each time and which he would have to fight back from in following tournaments.


From the November 2008 tournament he missed two tournaments in a row, but he bounced back from this in the subsequent March 2009 tournament with a perfect 7-0 followed by a playoff win to take the jonidan championship or yūshō. His fortunes largely changed after this and he had a series of mostly winning tournaments culminating in a 6–1 record at makushita 41 and coming just short of the championship by losing a playoff to Tochitsubasa.

He followed this with two strong 5-2 winning tournaments.

During this time, however the ramifications of the match-fixing scandal that would rock the sumo world were becoming apparent.


Due to this, Chiyonokuni, along with many other upper makushita wrestlers was promoted to salaried ranks of jūryō for the July 2011 though his actual performance so far would not have not merited promotion.

The expelled Rikishi included his elder stablemate Chiyohakuho.

Chiyonokuni was reported to have very mixed feelings about the scandal and admitted it felt surreal to be promoted to jūryō under such strange circumstances.


He did however exceed expectations and about recorded three strong winning tournaments in a row to earn promotion to the top makuuchi division in January 2012.

Although he recorded a winning record in this tournament he had to withdraw due to a dislocated shoulder.

In the following tournament in March he injured his shoulder again in a bout with Takanoyama on Day 11, which caused him to miss the May 2012 basho and drop down to the jūryō division.

He won the jūryō championship on his comeback in July and returned to the top division in November.


After scoring only 5–10 he was demoted to juryo again, but a 9–6 record at Juryo 2 in January 2013 ensured him of another top division return.

Though he only managed 7–8 in March 2013 he managed to avoid relegation.

He performed creditably in the May 2013 tournament, scoring 9–6, but was injured in the following tournament and withdrew with only two wins, resulting in another demotion to jūryō.


After four tournaments in the second division, he was again promoted to the top division, but another serious injury on only the second day in May 2014 would force him to sit out the rest of the tournament and guarantee his demotion to jūryō.

Ranked at the bottom of the jūryō division in September 2014, he withdrew on Day 8 and did not return to competition until March 2015, by which time he had fallen to the fourth sandanme division.


He has a highest rank of maegashira 1, but he has also been restricted by injuries, falling to the sandanme division in 2015 before staging a comeback, and then once again having serious injury in 2019 sending him down the ranks.

He made a final comeback which saw him stagnate in the second half of the jūryō division before his demotion and retirement.

He is a member of Kokonoe stable where he is an elder under the name Sanoyama.

Toshiki Sawada was born the son of a Buddhist temple head priest.

From a very young age he had great interest in combat sports such as karate.

He has said he was in the fourth grade when he first foretold he would be a professional sumo wrestler in the future.

As a member of his judo team in junior high school he advanced to the best sixteen in a national tournament.

Upon graduating from junior high school he joined former yokozuna Chiyonofuji's Kokonoe stable.


He began his comeback by winning the sandanme championship with a perfect 7–0 record, and in January 2016 he returned to sekitori status at jūryō 13 after four straight winning records in the makushita division.

He marked ten years as a professional sumo wrestler by winning his second jūryō division championship in May 2016 with a 12–3 record, ensuring his return to the top division for the first time in two years.

He achieved eight wins in the July 2016 tournament, his first kachi-koshi or winning record in makuuchi since 2013, although he withdrew because of injury on Day 13 meaning he had only completed three of his nine tournaments ranked in makuuchi.


He attained his highest rank to date of maegashira 1 in the May 2017 tournament, and on Day 2 defeated yokozuna Kakuryū to earn his first gold star or kinboshi. However he was only able to win one other bout and dropped back to maegashira 11 for the July 2017 tournament, where he secured his majority of wins.


In May 2018 he earned his first sansho award, for Fighting Spirit, after a career best 12–3 performance.

In July he benefited from two yokozuna withdrawals, getting a default win over Hakuhō on Day 4 and Kakuryū on Day 6.

However, he was himself injured in a match against Tamawashi on Day 12 and withdrew from the tournament on the following day.


In January 2019 he was on the tournament leaderboard with just one loss up to Day 9 but damaged his left knee ligaments in losing to Ikioi on Day 10 and had to withdraw from the tournament.

He underwent surgery on January 28 and did not enter the following tournament in March.

He would suffer three demotions for missed tournaments before starting his comeback in September at the ranking of Makushita 46.

In September, Chiyonokuni won the makushita division championship with a perfect 7–0 score, clinching the title with a victory over Terunofuji in his final match.


While he struggled with 3-4 finishes from upper makushita ranks, he recovered in spectacular fashion after the May 2020 tournament was cancelled due to COVID.

In the next basho Chiyonokuni won his second makushita championship in July 2020 with a 7–0 score from Makushita 12, followed by his third jūryō championship with a 14–1 record in September that would lead to a rare single-tournament promotion through Juryo.
