Hello, when was this article written ? and for what tournament year? It appears under the sub-heading "Venue: Ryogoku Kokugikan When: Late May - Early Jun 2021" BUT it references " the Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Hall in Tokyo between the 12th and 26th May 2019."

Thanks for pointing out the dates. It was originally written with the 2019 tournament in mind, and while still reflecting that, has been updated to consider future events.

It'd be very cool to get to go to the first tournament of the new era - one for the history books!

If you like it you'll love it and if you don’t like it you'll love it. It's a win-win situation.
