The natsu basho (summer tournament) is going on now in Tokyo.

We thought we might be able to get a glimpse, but the daily amount of unreserved tickets were sold out by the time we got!

The flags of the wrestlers were so colorful!

There were many people with sumo trading cards that would run up to the wrestler and ask for their autograph.

It was fun to hang around outside the arena like paparazzi...

On our way to the station, we caught 3 sumotori (wrestlers) in a taxi...check out the back wheels...way too close to the pavement!

They have a painting of Musashimaru in the JR Ryogoku station...

I have a little more photos and video if you are interested, here.

Hopefully we'll be able to check out a real tournament in the future...
