- Thank you for your great lecture. I was so impressed with your knowledge about sumo, which must be supported by your carrier as a journalist. Thank you again with my respect to you.
- It was fan to know inside story of sumo. Thank you so much. I’m looking forward to watching the tournament in Nagoya.
- Thank you for today’s interesting speech. I will visit a morning practice next week!
- Thank you for the opportunity to hear about sumo. I was not so interested in it before joining in this seminar. I’ll go to the Kokugikan to watch a match to find anything cool as a traditional sport.Thanks!
- I am now preparing for the tour-guide exam and attending CEL’s lesson. This is my first time hearing English-only lecture, so I won’t forget this opportunity. It was a little difficult for me, but I could understand about 70% of your story because your voice is clear. I’m happy to have this chance to hear sumo story.
- Thank you for the very interesting lecture today. It was a really good time for me. But, what you mentioned Chiyonofuji really shocked me, because I liked him in those days and I still like him. I still wonder if the story is true. Anyway I had a good chance to know about many things of sumo and non-official stories. I’m looking forward to listening to you next time again. Thank you.
- It was very, very interesting! I have loved sumo since elementary school days, but you have taught me of so many interesting things that I didn’t know at all. Thank you.
- I am really impressed with your knowledge about sumo, its history, past, present, etc. Please continue your effort to let people—especially foreign people--get information about sumo so they get more interested in it. Thank you.
- I enjoyed listening to Mark-san’s lecture. I was amazed to know that he knows lots about sumo, not only the surface of the sumo, but the deep inside of the sumo world and history. I want to go to a sumo stable to see a morning practice soon.
- Thank you for today’s lecture. I enjoyed hearing about the story that I haven’t heard before. I feel like visiting “Asageiko” and Kokugikan. Thank you again!
- Thank you very much for your interesting stories concerning sumo. An episode about Asashoryu surprised me. I feel sorry for him now.
- Thank you for good opportunity for finding interesting topics and real stories of sumo. All are impressive to me and are useful information for guiding. Hope to see again next time. Your joke was excellent.
- Thank you very much for a very interesting, kind of shocking story. I’m a big fan of sumo, so I’m happy to join this seminar. I’d like to see you again and want to know much more about sumo and other Japanese cultures. Thank you very much.
- I was so amazed at your profound knowledge of the past and the present sumo. It was very interesting to listen to the stories behind wrestlers, especially “yaocho” that were often reported on “weekly post” magazine before. We are very lucky to know “real stories” from the journalist who met, interviewed wrestlers. I didn’t know that Asashoryu had a good side of him i.e. donations to kids. I didn’t know the bad aspect of Chiyonofuji. When I was a child, my family visited his house in Hokkaido as my father was from the same place and liked him. It was a good occasion to recall my memory when I often saw sumo games on TV with my parents and grandparents. Thank you very much!
- How do you feel about the rule; Japanese women are not allowed to step on Dohyo? As for “British Sports” golf, there are some golf courses where women are banned from playing. This kind of prohibition exists in many countries. I am wondering if you have a comment on that.
- This was my first time to listen to a lecture about sumo. I heard many new things. Recognizing that sumo is quite different from other sports such as soccer or baseball, I was not disappointed. Sumo is real Kakuto-gi, one-by-one fighting. This could be one reason that there are still many mysterious things in sumo world. Thanks.
Thank you very much for your seminar with many interesting episodes.
I was impressed by the story about Asashoryu who has been misunderstood by Japanese people and media.
- Thank you for your detailed, interesting stories about Sumo.
I think I have to study much more about Sumo and other Japanese culture as Japanese.
Thank you very much.
And I’m looking forward to listening to your next talk show.

- I’ve been looking forward to your lecture very much. I’ve been a big Sumo fan for a long time, and now, my seven-year-old son has become a big fan, too. He’s very interested in various things unique to Sumo.
I’ve really really enjoyed your lecture today. I’m now impressed with a warm heart of Asashoryu.
I’ve got more and more interested in Sumo today.
Thank you very much.
