A SUMO MATCH IN RYOGOKU - For four minutes you can feel the tension build in the air. The salt is sprinkled, the feet are stamped and the intimidation is radiated. A four minute build up for a 10 seconds release, but what a release. The collision of power and weight coming together can be felt in the entire room and I love it. That’s the sport of sumo wrestling for you. Sumo, Tours, Tokyo, Wrestling, Action, Sumo Wrestling, Power, Tension, 10 Seconds
