WP_20151003_22_10_46_Pro

As a sumo fan, you likely have this kanji, 賞, in your vocabulary already. What we usually see it used on is the 三賞(sanshou), literally three prizes: 技能(ginoushou), 殊勲(shukunshou), and 敢闘(kantoushou). These are also known as the technique, outstanding performance, and fighting spirit prizes.  We usually see it translated as prize or award, like in the phrase ノーベル平和(no-beru heiwashou) a.k.a. the Nobel Peace Prize. On the right is a prize that I got a few months ago at work for being the man.
