Sakaigawa stable

Sakaigawa stable (境川部屋, Sakaigawa-beya) is a stable of sumo wrestlers, part of the Dewanoumi group of stables. It was established in its modern form on 25 May 1998 by former komusubi Ryōgoku, who branched off from Dewanoumi stable. It was originally called Nakadachi stable, but when Sakaigawa-oykakata (the 50th yokozuna Sadanoyama) reached the Japan Sumo Association's mandatory retirement age in February 2003, he passed on the Sakaigawa name, and the stable was renamed. As of January 2021, it had 23 wrestlers, with two of them ranked in the two professional divisions, making it one of the more successful stables.

In June 2020 wrestlers from the stable were among a group of around 20 people who helped rescue a woman from drowning in a nearby river in an apparent suicide attempt.[1]

Ring name conventions

Many wrestlers at this stable take ring names or shikona that begin with the characters 佐田 (read: sada), in honor of the original head of the stable, yokozuna Sadanoyama.
