Other types of sumo

6 posts in this topic

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
