Sumo in Osaka, March 2007

Osaka hosts the Grand Sumo Tournament every year in March. This March, I was able to convince Kim that sumo is a good thing. I have a convert!

Kotooshu (my favorite wrestler) prepares to wrestle Ama (the smallest wrestler in the top ranks, and another one of my favorite wrestlers).
Banners before a bout means there is extra prize money for the winner.
