Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium Ready For Competition
During Saturday in Japan, the dohyo constructed for the Nagoya tournament was consecrated in a traditional ceremony, making it ready for the upcoming sumo competition.
Sumo is an interesting sport that has many religious elements woven into it, from this consecration ceremony, to the rituals that happen before the Makuuchi bouts.
We are now just hours away from the start of competition, and Tachiai will bring you daily updates of all of the action from what promises to be an exciting Nagoya basho.
