***** Calendar Availability and Condition Notes *****
We have sold out of 2020 calendars.
For those interested, we did have a handful of calendars that received a slight crease from being dropped on the corner of the box while being shipped from Japan. These are available at a discount and are listed as "Slightly Creased". They are still very nice calendars but, due to the damage, we will sell them at a significant discount.
The Official 2020 Japan Sumo Association Calendar has arrived. It has 14 pages with one image per monthly page. It has pictures of wrestlers based on the September 2019 rankings including all top division (makuuchi) and second division (juryo) wrestlers. The calendar is 15.5" wide by 12" h when not open. When open it is 15.5" w x 24" h. The paper used is thick and the images are very high quality. It has a hole punched in the pages for hanging or use one of our attractive magnetic hangers (not included with calendar).
Consider a 2020 Sumo Calendar as a gift for your favorite SUMO fanatics.
