And, when Aiko was younger, her father spoke about her love of sumo, so she might like to provide her patronage to sporting organizations when she is of age. Although given all the scandals, would sumo be too contentious these days?

Yea.. sumo is unlikely. Tradition also forbids women from entering the sumo ring so I can't see a female patron. A few weeks ago, a referee tried to kick out women medics who entered the ring when a local mayor suddenly collapsed. The sumo chairman apologized later but still... hindering medical assistance?! O__o

ETA: more gender issues...
Although rare, female sumo wrestling does occur all over Japan at an amateur level. However, the JSA does not allow women to compete professionally, like their male counterparts.
