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.

On June 22nd, the IHA announced it has produced a DVD of the Emperor and Empress' activities for last year, focusing on ceremonies related to enthronement. The 56 minute video also includes public affairs, international goodwill, and local visits. DVD costs 1700 yen including tax. It's also available for free on government Internet TV.

English version:
https://nettv.gov-online.go.jp/eng/prg/prg6807.html

I skimmed it. Mostly old footage repackaged into 56 minutes.
