Sumo grand tours 2009/10/10 23:24
I've found out about the sumo grant tours, which are different from the sumo grand tourments. I can't make it to the tourments, so I was wondering perhaps to go to the tour. Here's a program I found: http://www.sumo.or.jp/eng/jungyo/naiyo/index.html
Does it mean there will be wrestling? Is it ment for tourists? Do they speak English in there?

Does it mean there will be wrestling?

Yes. "Bouts" means that wresters will wrestle each other. I am not sure about the number of bouts and the system behind it, but I think that most top ranked wrestlers will probably appear in at least one bout. Maybe it is even a small tournament based on a elimination system, but I am not sure.

Is it meant for tourists?

It is mainly meant to show sumo in the regions of Japan which do not host regular grand tournaments. But anybody is weclome to attend them.

Do they speak English in there?

No, probably not.
