The November Grand Sumo Tournament starts on November 13 in Kyushu. With Mainoumi, a former Komusubi, we ask whether Goeido, the winner of the September tournament, can secure promotion to Yokozuna with another overall victory. We focus too on Yokozuna Hakuho, who will return from injury and is set to become only the third-ever wrestler to win 1,000 bouts. Can he see off his rivals in the final tournament of the year? We also introduce the best up-and-coming young wrestlers.
Tokyo Yosakoi Contest
Yosakoi dance and music originates from Kochi Prefecture. At the first ever festival in 1954, dancers performed to a mix of traditional folk music but these days artists blend in rock, hip-hop, jazz or any genre they like. Tournaments are now held regularly all over Japan in which various colorful groups do battle against each other. Our Reporter Naotomo follows SHIN as they aim to win their 5th consecutive title at this year's Tokyo Yosakoi contest.
