Sumo wrestling is Japan's most famous sport. On display at this museum are ceremonial aprons called kesho-mawashi, sumo costumes, referees' lacquered paddles, and examples of the calligraphy of famous wrestlers. Wood-block prints, hair cuttings and sumo dolls give a historical overview to this unique sport. This museum is located beside the National Sumo Stadium.
Coming from the United States, it was nice getting to enjoy the traditional Japanese sport. The better guys don't come until the afternoon, but you can purchase an all day ticket and venture around the area until afternoon. Also we bought the general admission seating, which is all the way at the top, and it still wasn't a bad view at all.
