We had September grand sumo tour of the second times on Septemner 22nd.
This time, Ebi and I (Agu) were in charge of it.
It was sunny and very hot like summer.
It's too hot to walk to Ryogoku, so we went there by bus.
In front of Kokugikan, many sumo fans were waiting for their favorite sumo wrestler coming.
When we got to Kokugikan, we saw a young sumo wrestler.
We took photos at the entrance.
with sumo mascot, SEKITORI-KUN.
We ate Chanko, which is stew-like dish traditionally served to sumo wrestlers.
Some people went to Edo-Tokyo Museum until the ring entering ceremony started.
We call this "DAIMYO KAGO", which carried the feudal lord and prince from place to place.
The ring entering ceremony
His record reached 60 successive victories on Sep 24th.
If he wins on Sep 25th, he will be a champion in September Grand Sumo Tournament.
I'm really happy to have great time with them.
Thank you guys!!
