POTW 12 May 2013 The Sumo Tokyo Summer Tournament
Sunday was the first day of sumo’s Tokyo Summer Tournament. There are thirteen more days of the tournament, which runs from Sunday to the third Sunday. The top wrestlers to watch out are the top ranked Hakuho and Harumafuji, both are Mongolians and are portrayed as rivals. But then, Japan has a fascination of describing pairs of people who are not obviously friends as ‘rivals’. If you didn’t know, you can watch the sumo live on the internet, see that link for info. In any case, here is one of my favourite sumo photos for this Photo of the Week (POTW). You can find this, and other sumo photos in the sumo gallery.
