Covering such topics as "life in the stables," "psychological warfare," and the "spoils of victory," this compact sumo guide brings to life this cultural pastime that is so much more than a sport. This volume also includes a list of stables and some of the best chanko nabe restaurants in Tokyo. Shapiro brings to the updated edition many years of Japanese language, sumo research, and coverage.
