Okay, it's Sumo season again. Sadly Ura (the cutest, smallest, most hugable sumo wrestler) who I fangirl wildly as does (it seems) an entire army of Japanese girls ripped a leg muscle yesterday after falling off the platform and getting his leg twisted under him.

In another bout of Japanese television exposure (the fantastic if sometimes extremely odd nhkworld) the nhk mascot domo (who looks like a stone-age weetabix on legs) is still featuring in the station idents and you can watch some here: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/domo/dw/

A long, long time ago, in a world where TV, smartphones, schools, baseball, soccer, and NHK WORLD had yet to exist, the Domo tribe lived a sometimes dangerous but fun and carefree life with the dinosaurs.

He now has his own aerobics video as demonstrated by a lot of idol girls in an incredibly catchy j-pop video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uyJMRCxVSM
