About
The guide will first explain the origin, history, rules, fun, etc. of sumo. Sumo wrestlers are working extremely hard to be stronger because their ranking directly affects their income. They know they can make it into a big time only through practice. The morning practice starts before 7:00 a.m. with stretching, warming-up, and a routine of basic sumo movements. We usually get into the stable around 8:00 a.m. when they start practice matches. You will be overwhelmed by the sounds as you watch wrestlers hit their bodies head-on again and again. By this time, you will realize a huge mass of muscles constitute their bodies. When they stretch to cool down, you are now surprised to see how supple they are, which may be counter-intuitive given their gigantic bodies. We may have a chance to take photos with them after the practice.
