Yatagarasu    26

Hey guys,

 

Yatagarasu here!  I'm based in the UK and first started watching sumo during the Akebono era when I was a kid.  Then they stopped showing it on national TV here and I lost touch with it until about ten years ago to see Asashoryu's rise and fall.  I watch every basho now and was lucky enough to attend the May 2017 basho when I was visiting Tokyo.  It was incredible seeing them all close up.    

 

None of my friends are into sumo (womp womp!); they just don't get its charm.  So I am very pleased to finally find this place!  Look forward to chatting with you.  Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Welcome Yatagarasu! A bunch of us were visiting the May 2017 basho as well and had a few meet-ups which was fun.
