Fujishima stable (藤島部屋, Fujishima-beya), formerly known as Musashigawa stable, is a stable of sumo wrestlers, part of the Dewanoumi ichimon or group of stables. It was set up in August 1981 by former yokozuna Mienoumi, who branched off from Dewanoumi stable. Since its founding Dewanoumi had a long tradition of not permitting its coaches to break away and form new stables, and Mienoumi was the first to amicably depart Dewanoumi stable since Tochigiyama set up Kasugano stable 62 years earlier. By the early 2000s it had become the strongest stable in sumo, with a yokozuna, three ōzeki and several other top division wrestlers. Wrestlers from the stable won six consecutive tournaments from March 1999 to January 2000. In September 2008 Mienoumi also became head of the Sumo Association.
In September 2010 the former Mienoumi stood down as head coach and passed the stable to former ōzeki Musōyama, who changed its name to Fujishima. Former yokozuna Musashimaru branched off from the stable in April 2013 after taking on the elder name of his former head coach, creating a new generation of Musashigawa stable. As of January 2018 Fujishima had 16 wrestlers. It had no sekitori following the demotion of Shōtenrō to the makushita division in March 2016.
