Sumo tounerment has been started in Tokyo now!
We are organizing Sumo Watching Tour on 15th and 22nd at Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
Let's me introduce "Sumo" and " Our Tour".
Sumo wrestling is national sport and traditional culture. History has continued for about 1,500 years.
The origin of Sumo is tussling or trying one's strength against another's. This became event's at the Palace as a ceremony of the festival for reading the harvest of crop.
The period between 13C to 16C in Japan is called the period of Samurai.
In this era, Sumo had been often played as training for fights by Samurai.
NObunaga Oda loved Sumo so much, he gathered wrestlers to his castle and held the Sumo tounerment. The winner was hired as a Samurai retainer of ODA.
In 17C, Sumo had became an entertainment for general public, and became an important part of trditional Japanese culture same as KABUKI!!
