Sumo Fan Magazine sat down with Nakamura Okamisan for a great interview published here. For those who don’t follow Sumo, the word “Okamisan” is basically the honorific term for a female manager of a Sumo stable.
Yep, they call the gym where Sumo athletes train a “stable”. But, hey, they really are as big as a horse!
Sumo is the condensation of Japanese culture; the beauty Japan contains within, and the way of thinking inherent in this beauty are one of the fascinating things about Ozumo. Thus, I would like to ‘offer’ these things (as representative of Japan and the sport) in order to let fans in foreign countries understand them well.
