For four minutes you can feel the tension build in the air. Salt is sprinkled, feet are stamped and intimidation is radiated. A four minute build up for a 10 seconds release, but what a release! The collision of power and weight coming together can be felt in the entire room and I love it. That’s, in essence, is what the sumo wrestling is all about. Our incredible holiday to Japan just happened to coincide with the September Sumo tournaments, which take place on a yearly basis. And we were lucky enough to get some tickets for the Tokyo tournament at the famous arena Ryōgoku Kokugikan in Sumida.
