It has been a while since last January, 3 Yokozunas will appear the begining of the tournament.
Recently they got injury, were in bad condition, several reasons, 1 or 2 Yokozunas were absent in a midway of tournaments.
Therefore this tournament must be really exciting!
Hope no accident, no injury…

During the Sumo Tournament is held, aruond Ryogoku Gokugikan is crowded with many Sumo funs!!
Which means… you will see some Sumo wrestlers!!!
Some of them are about to fight their match, some of them are finished their match.
Try not to bother them, they are doing serius matches everyday.
Be polite and feel their passion :)
If you are lucky, you will be able to take pictures with Rikishi (wrestler).
