I was honored to be asked by The Japan Times to write a sumo column as part of the 120th anniversary revamp. This paper was probably the first place I read about sumo and was an invaluable source of news back in the days of dial-up internet, when I first came to Japan.

For those that don’t know me, I’m a former amateur sumo wrestler who now works on various NHK programs including live tournament broadcasts. I deal with rikishi and others in the sumo world on a daily basis and will be giving you the inside grip on all its going-ons.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
