So far these types are only spamming my search results, but now even Kyodo has a news video of one, paper-sumo, so I feel it is time to have a thread for it - the other decent one among these types is robot-sumo, several animal types are already  in a nearby thread, I'll leave the other crap unmentioned until they get a proper news video as well.

After Kyodo with paper, a real paper, Asahi shimbun, presents spider sumo

The sumo boom now puts many other types of sumo in the spotlight as well - the ones that are suitable as a play for kids. April/May is the time to collect the rikishi for this.

A very logical variation of paper sumo - hi-pin sumo

Here I was thinking this was going to be about sumo-like sports played by people...silly me.

Asahi shimbun sticks to spider sumo and reports about the 67th National Jorougumo-sumo tournament: 45 spider oyakata had their deshi fight: 15 makuuchi, 18 juryo and 12 in the tourist division. Actually the proper classification of the sumo-spiders is Argiope amoena. Up to 20mm is juryo, above makuuchi. A stick of 55cm is the dohyo, they fight tournament style to decide the division yusho. There are 4 kimarite, eg. gappuri - getting a bite at the opponent - and yagura-otoshi - throwing the opponent off the stick. If the bout isn't decided after 3min, the spider oyakata decide the match by janken. http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASK853VT8K85PLPB001.html
