2016.09.14

Sumo the national sport in Japan.
Ryogoku area is well known as a Sumo town since the Kokugikan, the sumo arena is located at this area.
Once you visit this area, perhaps you can see Sumo wrestlers with Kimono nearby the Kokugikan.
However, since taking nap time is also their training, it is hard to run across with sumo wrestlers, and having conversation with them is pretty difficult.
