Takamiyama Torinosuke (髙見山酉之助, October 25, 1873 – January 11, 1924) was a Japanese sumo wrestler.

Career

He joined Takasago stable, reaching the top makuuchi division in 1907. In the June 1909 tournament, he defeated ozeki Tachiyama and won the first official championship in the history of professional sumo. He reached his highest rank of sekiwake in January 1910. He reportedly feared facing the small but fierce Tamatsubaki Kentaro.[1] After he retired in May 1913, he left the sumo world and returned to his hometown.
