Sumo In Shrine

Sumo wrestler

The sumo competition was held in the precinct

Shot at Yasukuni Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Kudan, Tokyo.

There was a sumo ring in the most remote part of this shrine. The sumo wrestling has a log history and it was a ceremony for forecasting the harvest in ancient times. It was not just an entertainment but a ritual. So it's no wonder that a sumo ring is built in the precinct.

At the time of visiting, a sumo meet was held. Of course, the wrestlers were impressive. Yet what attracted me so much was the referee who wore a butterfly tie.
