Arriving in Tokyo, browsing the Sumo wrestling district, Ryogoku, can be quite exciting. Especially when you get to meet the big guys! Spotted them while they were buying the afternoon snack… Had to ask for a picture!
But their buddy ran away probably because he was still in the pajama!
Ever tried to set yourself in the starting position for a sumo wrestling game, equivalent to an extra deep 2nd position in ballet? Well I might say I’m pretty impressed by their flexibility after watching my daughter giving it a try. She used to be a dancer for many years and had to work it really hard to get as low as the sumo guy.
A special feature of the Ryogokan district where you also find the arena and the training spaces.
