SUMO IN TOKYO 2014 and 2015
Very sad to say good-bye to the very 1st-European-less-than-100kg Sumo Wrestler after Nagoya-basho 2014. He had "only" 91kg, but very good shape with whole muscle no fat. And he was the only wrestler from Czech. It is clear that big is not the best, Takanoyama proved by his own spirit of Praha.
Even without Takanoyama, It will be more than Sumo when you see all the fights including Aoiyama (Bulgaria) or Amuru (Russia, named after the river Amur) or Tochinoshin (Georgia) or Gagamaru (Georgia) or Kaisei (Brazil) or Masunoyama (Philippine) and more. And very first African wrestler OSunaArashi (BigSanderStorm) from Egypt is fighting to reach the summit of pyramid. If you were in Tokyo area during Tokyo Tounament, please have this chance to visit Ryogoku, just across Sumida river away from Asakusa.
