The NHK World’s Grand Sumo team will be starting the Haru basho with a “Grand Sumo Preview” program Friday (Japan time), followed by “Grand Sumo Live” for the final 50 minutes of day 1 Sunday.

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.
