Women's sumo Japan

Recommended Posts

This was actually the second of such tournaments held in Hokkaido. Both sought to play on the previous obscurity of women performing sumo (prior to female amateur sumo in the mid-90s). Kawayu Onsen held an annual tournament from 1972 to 2003, and Fukushima began their annual tournament in 1991 in a bid to harness the appeal and the rarity of women performing sumo to attract visitors.
