4. SUMO HAKUBUTSU-KAN/Sumo museum







It is not a big museum as there is only one room, but various kinds in the themed exhibitions are held six times a year. I am very enjoyed the beautiful wooden print “Ukiyo-e” of Sumo in the Edo period. Especial interesting is the wrinkles of big Sumo wrestler’s body represented by many lines.
Anyway this museum’s entrance is not noticeable for Tamaki and me, it is on the right side of Ryogoku-kokugigi-kan’s main entrance. And we are sorry that during the Grand Sumo Tournament, it opens everyday but only audience may enter.
