First, thanks to FRED, Japan’s 10-year government bond yields versus U.S. 10-year Treasury bond yields.

Ugh. Yeah, you can see those negative interest rates in Japan. For 10-year government bonds.

Sumo!

Natto Sumo YouTube Channel - main way I watch the bouts.

Video of one day of matches:

NHK World — one of their Sumopedia videos, on gold star victories

Two Facebook groups on Sumo:

SumoSumoSumo (very active, and my fave sumo group) and

NHK World’s Grand Sumo group (not very active, but official).

Hakke yoi!
