March Grand Sumo Tournament
Every year in March, 700 of Japan's strongest athletes battle it out at the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium (also known as the Edion Arena Osaka) for a 15-day tournament.
In this 2,000-year old sport, two wrestlers enter a roped ring of 4.5 meters' diameter. To win a bout, a wrestler must either push his opponent out of the ring, or knock him down within it. The sumo action runs from 8:30am-6pm daily (starting later on the final weekend). Fans may enter at any time during the day, and for maximum enjoyment, should arrive before the spectacular ring entrance ceremonies at 3:45pm.
