My understanding was that empty ones were cheaper
seats. If they cannot fill the arena not having
Hawaiian rikishi, perhaps this is as good time as any
to stop going there.

There are other places vying for them to come over. If
one of their criteria to have a foreign jyungyo is
where there is a sizible Japanese population,
obviously this should tell them, it won't work
anymore. 

I don't understand why they don't go to Mongolia
before the mania dies down over there too.
