The question is unclear. The lowest of top five what? If it's top 5 ranks, then the answer is Maegashira- top to bottom it's Yokozuna (1 wrestler), Ozeki (5), Sekiwake (2), Komusubi (2) and Maegashira (32), as of last May's rankings. New rankings are out on June 28th.

The lowest rank in sumo is that of Jonokuchi. You will seldom see these in any sort of broadcast or newspaper listing. They have completed the basic school of sumo and are just starting to compete.

What is the lowest rank of sumo?

Yokozuna (横綱) is the highest rank in sumo wrestling. The name comes from the most visible symbol of their rank, the wide (yoko) rope (tsuna) worn around the waist. The rope bears a marked similarity to the Shinto shimekazari rope often attached to torii temple gates and sacred trees, and like them serves to purify and mark off its content. The rope, which may weigh up to 20 kilograms, is not used during the matches themselves, but is worn during the yokozuna's dohyo-iri ring entrance ceremony.
