    Sekitori Sweepstake - March 2024

    Hi all. Quick question. If the intai rule has to be applied, can the player then re-enter at mae-zumo for the next basho - kind if re-incarnated if you will? Or are they banned for ever playing again?

    Game 21 Kyushu Basho 2023

    Many thanks to Yarimotsu and Profomisakari for providing and running Game 21. It's an honour to claim a yusho but pure luck with little skill on my behalf. See you all in January.

    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    Lovely to see Tomozuma Oyakata (formerly Kaisei) out and about with Hiro in the latest episode. Kaisei comes across as such a nice chap both in the ring and outside it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PMFs3Wz37A

    Female Sumo - Guardian UK

    Wow. I really don't think it was intended as some hard hitting, controversial exposé, just a recounting of a photo project that won an award with interesting subject matter. It was written by the photographer herself, Yulia Skogoreva, who studies and lives in Japan, so not a staffer, guessing that's why comments were off. Originally a very similar article was published by the Tokyo Weekender in February, clearly this fitted into the Guardian's existing 'Photo Essay' / Picture-Led Storytelling section - it was all Glastonbury last week. Just another circulated article that I thought might be of interest to the odd person here. Hey ho.

    A short 'photo essay' from The Guardian (UK) (30/06/23). Some nice pictures. The female sumo wrestlers fighting for recognition – a photo essay | Sumo wrestling | The Guardian

    Tochinoshin intai

    Is renouncing your former country still a pre-requisite for Japanese citizenship? If so, perhaps Tochi didn't want to go down that route and a form of residency in Japan was more suitable for him? He is a big hero in Georgia.

    Game 21 Haru Basho 2023

    I've never finished so high, I'm usually in the bottom half of the table. I look forward to taking my usual place next time! Thank you Profomisakari and Yarimotsu for providing the game.
