Import restrictions on athletes

Since 2002, Japan's sumo stables have been subject to a quotas on foreign wrestlers.

Japanese baseball teams are also limited to the number of foreign players (called suketto, or "helpers") they can have. I think the current limit is 4 on the lineup at any given time. Back in the '90s, the limit was one per team.
