Sumo, with over 1,500 years of history, is a religious rite, a part of traditional cultural with a rich esthetic and a truly exciting combative sport. In recent years, thanks to SNS and a variety of new magazines, a whole new category of female sumo fan known as the, “sujo” (literally the, “sumo girls”) has sprung up. Due to the quality of international broadcasts and the number of foreign born rikishi performing at the highest levels, sumo’s international appeal continues to grow.
