On 10/6, the Sumo Kyokai posted highlights from the Aki Basho. I enjoyed watching many of the bouts, especially Takayasu’s win over Harumafuji. Grappling matches can be exciting but these arms-length brawls are fun to watch.
Currently, our favorite rikishi are in the midst of a break in their Fall Jungyo tour. Bruce has written about these tours before. You can see from the videos that it’s more light-hearted PR for the sport. I hope they visit the States sometime. I really want to see one because they seem like a lot of fun, especially for the kids. The tour starts up again on Friday in Aichi-ken. A full schedule for the Jungyo is available on the sumo.or.jp website.
