Today we visited SUMO stable in Ryogoku with our lovely guests from early in the morning.
This event is really popular among our guests and we've already held few times.
10 guys from Canada, France, Singapore, USA, Mexico and Taiwan joined the event :)
For some of them, it was a very first time to watch SUMO wrestlers closely.
So it might be a good opportunity for them!!
Here are some picked pictures from the event.
This is the SUMO Stable where visited today.
Kataonami SUMO Stable
*They normally don't accept any foreign visitors without anyone who can speak in Japanese.
6 wrestlers belong to Kataonami SUMO Stable at the moment.
And there are 2 active makuuchi wrestlers (higher-ranked wrestlers).
Therefore its training looked really tough!
After watching the training, we asked some questions to the wrestlers!
They were pretty kind to answer our questions :)
Thanks, Tamawashi-zeki & Tamaasuka-zeki!
In addition, the master of the stable allowed the limited two people to get in the ring!
Look! He looks like a baby >u< lol
We enjoyed yammy lunch cooked by the wrestlers :)
It was super fun :)
Thank you very much for joining the event!
