Kakuryu Shines in March Basho

In a great display of technique and ability, Sekiwake Kakuryu seriously challenged Hakuho for the Emperors Cup. It was great to watch. The Yokozuna has been so dominant the last several years. We may now see the challengers we have been longing to see. With Baruto winning in January, and Harumafuji's recent tournament win, the Yokozuna no longer seems as invincible as he once was thought to be.

This was a great tournament. I don't know yet, but we may see Kakuryu as an Ozeki next tournament.


  1. Kakuryu did get promoted to Ozeki, which is so great. I've been a fan of his since he was a komusubi two years ago.

    I recently started a sumo appreciation blog and was looking for other sumo fan blogs to connect to and found yours. Check it out when you get the chance.

  2. I have been really enjoying your blog! It is great to see someone who is new to Sumo (like me) get involved and do something to promote the sport!
