Sumo is a national Japanese sport. However, a sumo wrestler doesn’t look like a typical Japanese person… 😉
When I was in Tokyo, I wanted to visit a sumo stadium and museum. Unfortunately they were closed. Well, it was still interesting to walk along nearby streets and find so many “sumo statutes” (like the one from today’s picture).
(The other famous Japanese sports are of course judo and karate.)

I love the statue.
Thank you! 🙂
I haven’t seen sumo fight live in Japan yet, though few years ago I met two sumotori making shopping for their team at Tsukiji market. Then, few weeks later, I saw them on tv taking part in the tournament. 😀 It was so cool!
oh, so great!
