Sumo related goods

Recommended Posts

A really weird amateur sumo related CM video appeared on YT today, I simply had to check the background and found some nice illustrations.

It's a video entry from a 2019 promotion contest by Tsukumi-city, for the Bungo maguro "yokozuna" that is raised in aquaculture in the Bungo strait by the company Hyoshoku. http://hyoshoku.com/publics/index/15/

Caution though! - the video may be slightly disturbing for some: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLNVOyR8ErA

Savory and spicy Miso with garlic and chili peppers
Sumo Miso
Sumo Miso was created in response to a foreign customer’s request.  Distinguished by a package featuring 10th-generation Yokozuna Hisakichi Unryu, a sumo wrestler from Yanagawa. Sumo Miso is so popular Yanagawa gift with a deep, savory flavor that follows an initial spicy bite. Sumo Miso goes perfectly with vegetable sticks, and grilled meat. It won the award at the Local Gourmet Miso and Soy Sauce Grand Prix.

Not Japan - there was an Ugly Christmas sweater day recently in North America and one Yamaguchi there came to the office with a Chanko-Claus sweater and was voted ugly king. o

Usually Americans are embarrassed by the mawashi and the bare rear. In this case they are embarrassed by the bare feet.

It only shows sumo like it is now, I think it's made a particularly ugly sight with the heavy bandaged feet. Wearing bandages used to be pointed out as ugly in the past on NHK, nobody bothers now.
