Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
This month, we had 2 times of Sumo Watching Tour with our guests.
January Grand Tournament was really exciting.
At that moment, three Yokozuna, grand champions were all from Mongolia.
There are many Japanese wrestlers in the 2nd rank - Ozeki, and expected to promote to Yokozuna, but no one succeeded for many years.
But finally, Kise-no-sato won the championship of January Grand Tournement and approved by the committee as a new Yokozuna.
On February 5th, there is one-day tournament in Tokyo, but the tickets are already sold out.
Last year, some of our guests could buy the ticket in the last minute, so it is kinda unusual this year.
Mmmm... SUMO is now back to the big boom here in Japan!
The next Grand Tournement will be held in Osaka, and many people will try to get the ticket to see a new Yokozuna!
In Tokyo, next chance to see the tournament will be in May.
We'll hold the tour again, so don't miss it!
I bet the tickets must be sold out before the tournement starts.
