Even without Takanoyama who just got retired after Nagoya-basho in 2014 now back in Praha Czech, it will be more than Sumo when you see all the fights including Ichinojo (Mongolia, over 200kg!), Aoiyama (Bulgaria, almost 200kg), Amuru (Russia, named after the river Amur), Tochinoshin (Georgia), Gagamaru (Georgia, 200kg-ish!), Kaisei (Brazil), Masunoyama (Philippine) and more. And very first African wrestler OSunaArashi (BigSanderStorm) from Egypt is fighting to reach the summit of pyramid. All those listed in high ranking sumo wrestlers earn more than a million yen each month (good job you'd consider?). 40 years old can still fight in the front line like Kyokutenho (Mongolian already obtained a Japanese passport). If you were in Tokyo area during Tokyo Tounament, please have this chance to visit Ryogoku just accross Sumida river from Asakusa.
