Rikishi Citizenship data?

Recommended Posts

Hello friends, 

I am just curious to know if there is any dataset available which includes the citizenship data of Rikishi from 1983 onwards.

Thanks and regards.

A good place to start would be the SumoDB; you have the option to see shusshin and highlight the non-Japanese ones, like this.

There's also a lot of good nuggets of information on Naganoyama's site, perhaps the Special Categories tab would be a good place to start (here).

But do keep in mind that neither of those things reflects actual citizenship 100% accurately, if that's strictly what you're looking for.

Thankyou for providing the above resources. Is there any resource where we get to know if any Rikishi changed their citizenship to Japanese citizenship at any period of time.
