View Full Version : Great English language Sumo website!

My wife found this great English Language Sumo website! Since Sumo World bit the dust, there has been little for the English-speaking sumo fans to devour. Check-out http://www.sumo.or.jp/eng/ for a wealth of information on sumo. This site is fantastic! It's a good place to visit just before the upcoming May basho, in Tokyo. I can hardly wait to see if Hakuho is ready to take his sumo to the next level by becoming a Yokozuma. Which sparks many a debate about whether Asashoryu will let him. Does he have what it takes? I belive he does.

Hi Jon - just you and me here! :p

I quite like this blog that an American lady writes about her sumo experiences in Japan:


Also, my bread-and-butter sumo website is:


- great stats.

As for the basho so far (day 2), Kotooshu was pretty lucky to win and Asashoryu hit Homasho like a truck!
