Sumo Pages on the Internet

Leonishiki Sumo 		Room This is the best Spanish-language sumo site on the Net. Don't worry, it's bilingual.

Win-loss matrixes, banzukes and other useful information are here.
Check this site every week, you can find some hundreds of sumo links here.

Links to Japan

There are many links to Japanese websites and naturally it's not a collection of them here. You can find some of my favorite links only.

Virtual tour to Edo. Wonderful work of Ken Matsushima guides you to capital of the Shogun. You can download beautiful ukiyoe pictures from the gallery of the Castle.

Do you know Japanese? Then you will highly value this site. If you don't, you still can find something to read. Japanese literature.

Mapion. A very detailed clickable map of Japan. The site is in Japanese.

MapFanWeb. Actually the same as above, but it is a nicer one.
