Endo !

I went to Ryogokukokugikan to watch Sumo for the first time. 
It was very very exciting and fun! Though I'm not interested in Sumo, but watching it live is really good!
I sat in a "box seat" for four people.  It was near the Sumo ring and we could see well.
This is Shota Endo. He was promoted very quickly. So his hair 

is not long enough to be tied and still doesn't have a special "Sumo"name yet.
Can you find Yonesuke the comedian??

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            He couldn't win this time.
                                But many people cheered for him!                                                                                                                                                                                                  

This is the closing ceremony at the end of the Sumo tournament.
Sumo is one of Japan's national sports and important cultural traditions.
This is the first time for me to see live Sumo in Tokyo and experience an ancient Japanese cultural event. One of many traditional cultures of Japan. Wonderful!
I wish for Sumo continue forever.

"Ochayasan" is guide at the Sumo tournament  and brings tea, lunch box and beer to the box  seat. Yakitori was good! 
Finally, they brought Japanese teacups and sweets for souvenirs. 
I had a dream like time and time past very quickly.
If I have a chance, I want to go again!
