Sumo, Japan's spectacular national sport, continues to maintain its popularity despite the inroads made in recent years by baseball. Millions continue to be enthralled by the fifteen-day championship matches now held six times a year in Japan's major cities. The tournament halls are filled to capacity every day and nationwide televising now enables anyone to see Sumo, adding further stimulus to the popularity of "the Sport".
Mr. Sargeant, sports editor for the English-language, Asahi Evening News, realized that there were many foreigners who would enjoy Sumo more if they knew more of the essential facts about it. Utilizing his knowledge and first-hand information on the sport, he produced this book to meet this need. Written in the humorous, easy-to-read fashion with which the many readers of his sports column will be pleasantly familiar. Mr. Sargeant has also given us a picture of the excitement of the sport, as well as technical aspects that are apt to escape the uninitiated eye.
