It’s become a fixture of the sumo calendar for the English speaking world. With the opening day of the Aki basho just a few days away, NHK World brings us another preview of the tournament, along with highlights and features about sumo and rikishi. Fans are eager to see if Raja is back to being tortured by rikishi, what kind of discussion breaks out between Murray and John, and which days they will broadcast live (pretty sure its day 1 and 8).
Make sure to tune in and enjoy it as its broadcast, or visit the NHK World web site to watch it via video on demand (works great on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and other streaming platforms).
