The January tournament is underway.

 

There is a TWITCH streamer showing today's matches (Monday night here, Tuesday there), which may be seen here (2330ish our time):

You can get caught up by watching previous day's matches from sites such as this:

The Spring Basho(every March) in Osaka is a hoot.

 

First time we attended, the Missus took me to a nearby noodle restaurant beforehand, that the wrestlers often frequent. It's cool to see them milling about, amongst the public - although most folks certainly give them a wide berth!

 

There was an amazing gaijin expert/TV analyst on sumo, a Ms Doreen Simmons. She'd come to Japan about 5 decades back, & fell in love with the sport. She got to know many stable managers & wrestlers, & offered keen insight. She wrote mag articles & provided commentary on NHK. It was sad when she passed on a few yrs back.
