Tokyo - Suma Wrestling
5.20.15 - 5.20.15 80 °F
Today was a special day as we had booked a tour to the 11th day of the May Suma Wrestling Championships. We saw all of the top tier wrestlers.
However, we started the day with a subway trip to the Sony Building to view the four floors of Sony's electronics. You could certainly purchase, but I resisted. Really didn't need anything!
We then met up with our Tour Leader Miki, who would guide us through the afternoon's Suma wrestling event. It was a labor of love for her. She is a big fan, and had been going to meets since she was a child when her grandfather would take her!
The entrance of the wrestlers and the two Grand Champions:
The current Grand Champion - Hakudo from Mongolia is the last match of the day. He wins!
And the final traditional Bow Ceremony.
It was a totally unique and special event celebrating 2000 years, and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.
