NHK World’s Grand Sumo Osaka Coverage – Friday!

The 30 minute “Grand Sumo Preview” program will be the latest in a string of outstanding programs that look into the upcoming tournament, and each program typically features a recap of the previous tournament, a feature rikishi section (maybe Tamawashi?), and a session where Raja Pradhan is forced to be some massive fellow’s practice partner.

  1. Everyone’s favourite reporter Raja Pradhan is getting into the ring with the Jan champion! Don’t miss it!

  2. Terutsuyoshi (hope I spelled that right) gets a shout out in the preview. Very informative, I thought.
