March Tournament

The March tournament is drawing attention to the top-ranked rikishi. If Yokozuna Terunofuji secures another consecutive victory, it will mark his 10th championship. Among the Ozeki ranks, will the newly promoted Ozeki, Kotonowaka, who competed for the title against Terunofuji in January, claim his first Emperor's Cup? Or will the senior Ozeki, Takakeisho, Kirishima and Hoshoryu, stage a comeback? In the featured rikishi interviews, we heard from Nishikigi, who returned to Komusubi, about the secret to his strength. Sumopedia will focus on "gyoji," introducing the world of referees, including their unique attire and ranking system.
