After a 6-1 record in jonidan in July he won four of his seven bouts in September 2019 before announcing his retirement. He is staying in sumo as a toshiyori or elder of the Japan Sumo Association and a coach at Isegahama stable. He is now known as Tateyama Oyakata, the elder share previously held by the former head of the Kataonami stable, ex-sekiwake Tamanofuji.
Homarefuji announced his engagement in February 2017, and his wedding reception was held in June at the Tokyo Royal Park hotel with 500 guest attending.
Homarefuji was an oshi-sumo specialist who preferred pushing and slapping techniques to fighting on the mawashi or belt. His most common winning kimarite or technique is oshi-dashi, or push-out. According to his Japan Sumo Association profile, as of January 2015 he had won 44 of his last 75 bouts and 61 per cent had been won by oshidashi.
In the following November he was re-promoted to makuuchi. He had two consecutive winning 8–7 tournaments and reached maegashira 7 for the March tournament in Osaka. Since then his progress has stalled and he was demoted back to jūryō for the March 2016 tournament. He reappeared in makuuchi in September 2016, but had to withdraw from the tournament on Day 4 after getting injured on the opening day. He lost sekitori status when he was demoted from the jūryō division after the July 2018 tournament, and after missing several tournaments through injury he had fallen to sandanme 77 by May 2019. He competed in just one match in the May 2019 tournament, which he won, resulting in a drop to jonidan.
He found his stride from the November 2012 tournament after his third jūryō promotion. He recorded three consecutive 10-5 tournaments in this division, and was added to the ranks of the top makuuchi division for the first time in May 2013. He was the first wrestler from Aomori prefecture (a place known for producing many strong wrestlers) to enter makuuchi since Takarafuji (also from the Isegahama stable) in July 2011. Homarefuji only lasted one tournament however, as a 5–10 record in lower makuuchi saw him again in the ranks of jūryō. For the next sixteen months, he became a jūryō regular, recording around the same number of winning and losing tournaments. In the last three tournaments of this period in September 2014, he managed a string of winning tournaments which culminated in an 11–4 record, his strongest showing ever since becoming a sekitori.
After his second promotion back to makushita in November 2011 his fortunes began to change. Over the next six tournaments he would only have one losing tournament, and in January 2012 he was promoted to the salaried ranks of the second jūryō division. Over the next several months, he had three tournaments in jūryō and two demotions back to upper makushita. In the July 2012 tournament in this period, Homarefuji participated in the ring entering ceremony wearing a keshō-mawashi with a panda design on it. It had been provided by a support group in Wakayama prefecture to commemorate the birth of a baby panda in Ueno Zoo in Tokyo just two days before the beginning of the tournament. Sadly, the baby panda died only four days into the tournament. Homarefuji later lamented that his lackluster 5–10 performance that tournament did not give the baby panda the proper memorial, and he deserved the demotion.
Miura, upon joining Isegahama stable, quickly assumed the ring name of Homarefuji. He stepped into the professional sumo ring in March 2008. He would make quick work of the lower three divisions. He achieved an impressive 5–2 record in his jonokuchi debut in March. Then the very next tournament in May he had a perfect 7–0 record and defeated Fukao (future Akiseyama) in a playoff for the championship of the jonidan division. He followed this with another 7–0 record and a playoff win against Surugatsukasa to take the sandanme division championship in July of that year.
His speedy rise slowed considerably upon reaching the hotly contested makushita division in September 2008. He began to struggle in this division, and he would fight largely in the middle ranks of makushita for three years. He also had to miss two tournaments due to a left shoulder injury, both of which resulted in him being relegated back to sandanme. On both occasions though, strong records allowed him promotion back to makushita after only one tournament.
