May 2005 Sumo Tournament: Lower Ranks

I visited Tokyo's grand sumo tournament today at the Ryogoku Kokugikan (国技館). These pictures were taken between 9 and 11am when the lower rank matches were taking place. When no one is occupying the ring-side seats, there's really nothing to stop a curious tourist from going right up to see the action close and personal.

 

今朝、両国国技館で日本相撲協会の写真を撮った。朝9時から11時までは序ノ口とか序二段です。面白いこは、レバルによって行司の服が変わっている。
