NHK Grand Sumo Preview – Friday

Yes, it’s that time again! With the Haru Basho only days away, NHK World Japan is streaming their trademark Grand Sumo Preview show. Always worth the watch (my only knock is that it’s fairly short), it looks like we get an inside look at the yobidashi this time, which I am sure I will enjoy.

The show airs at 13:30 JST, and every 6 hours following that. So catch it on the NHK World Japan app, via a web browser, or wait for it to become watchable on demand about a day following.

  1. Yes! I love the preview! I think we didn’t get one last basho because we got a different show instead, I forgot which.

    I won’t lie. I’m excited about this new no audience basho, it’s going to be strange and we may never get something like this again in our lifetimes.

    Cancellations probably but a basho with no audience for 15 days? Crazy


    I live in California and the NHK channel I watch is 462 – The Grand Sumo Preview will be shown TONIGHT AT 8:30 PST. If you get the same IPTV Channel check your time zones – you should see it tonight!!


    Best Wishes and Thanks to ALL!

  3. OK, NHK, watching our favorite sumo punching bag/chew toy fill that role is one of the few super-fun things we’ll still get this basho, so please don’t let us down… ;p

  4. “We may never get something like this again in our lifetimes . . .” Says the optimist.

  5. Hiro stinks. I’m sure he knows things, but he is so awkward on tv. Hand it over to Raja or Ross already, you marble-mouthed goof!
