In recent years, the popularity of professional sumo wrestling has extended beyond Japan’s borders, with a growing number of foreign wrestlers joining the ranks of the sport. Mongolian wrestlers, in particular, have made a significant impact on Japanese professional sumo, with many rising to become some of the sport’s top stars. Live broadcasts of Japanese professional sumo wrestling matches have played a significant role in spreading the sport’s popularity both within Japan and abroad. Thanks to the availability of live streaming and television broadcasts, fans from around the world can watch and enjoy the excitement of sumo wrestling matches as they happen. In particular, Mongolian wrestling fans have been able to closely follow the performances of their favorite wrestlers in the Japanese league, and support them from afar. The impact of live broadcasts of Japanese professional sumo wrestling matches on Mongolian wrestling fans is an area of particular interest for this study. It is likely that such broadcasts have not only helped to expand the fanbase of the sport in Mongolia but also allowed Mongolian fans to gain a deeper understanding of the customs and traditions that are a part of the sport. Additionally, the success of Mongolian wrestlers in the Japanese league may have inspired young people in Mongolia to pursue a career in professional sumo wrestling, creating a ripple effect of cultural exchange and influence.
