I am watching the November Grand Sumo Tournament on sumo.or.jp. I looove sumo! Anyone else?
I would love to see it, but there are no channels showing it.:)
I am very happy that you are interested in Japan's national sport.:)🎌


Strangely, movies and dramas dealing with sumo wrestling are rare even in Japan.



Before the spread of smartphones in Japan, a unique Japanese standard called 'i-mode' was central to connecting phones to the Internet. I think that it is correct that this is the cause of the special bias on the Japanese homepage.

I have an eye on Abi, Maegashira 8 (I think) who won the November 2022 yusho. I expect he *might* someday be a Yokozuna. Is his ancestry Japanese, Mongolian, or...?

I am a long-time fan of Takayasu -- often a close finisher but never won a yusho. Even so, if I got caught in a street brawl, he's the rikshi I would want on my side.

I didn't even know Disney+ was showing "Sumo do, sumo don't". Thanks show-Zi san.

At 6,049 pounds, the mola weighed more than the full starting lineup of an American football team. The specimen was also nearly a thousand pounds heavier than the previous Guinness World Record holder for the heaviest bony fish—another sunfish of the same species, Mola alexandrini, which was caught near Japan in 1996. (Fish are divided into two large classes, with sharks and rays classified as cartilaginous fish and mostly everything else as bony fish.)
