My wife and I went to Tokyo and there was a sumo tournament in progress. We bought tickets and watched it for a couple of hours. Quite amazing to see and hear the Japanese crowd go wild when the sumo wrestlers were warming up :-) Well, most fights were over in seconds...and sometimes the fighters ended up in the audience :-)

Great picture Gard! I really like japonese culture. I have to picture here in TE about then!
Sumo is some magical! This "warming up" you talk about has a function in there culture, is to banish bad spirits! That what I like this people, everything has a ceremony!
