Sumo Practice

On the north part of Sumiyoshi Shrine, a sumo ring was made a few years ago. Since then, a stable, “heya”, a group of sumo wrestler live around here and practice sumo during the Osaka Tournament every spring. It is going to start on March 15th and end on 29th this year.

This morning, I found a flock of people around the ring.

Usually, it is covered with the tent, but this morning, their practice was open to public. They are ready for the tournament!
