Ritual Sumo in Tachikawa, Tokyo

Recommended Posts

A ritual sumo event was held in Suwa Shrine in Tachikawa, Tokyo yesterday as part of the Summer Matsuri celebrations. A Shinto priest was there to start off the event, followed by warm-up activities such as shiko and suriashi. The ritual sumo itself comprised of "Beat 3 opponents in a row" (with prizes being given to those who achieved this), "Beat 5 opponents in a row", "Blindfolded Sumo", "Sanyaku Soroibumi", "Sanyaku Bouts" and "God Sending Ceremony" (神送りの儀式).

Here's a video I made from the event, any improvement suggestions for future videos would be greatly appreciated.
