SUMO!!!! 相撲!!!!

"Sumo" tornament will finally end on this Sunday, 24th of May. Do not miss this chance to get the new experience!! You will be definetely knocked down by watching the fight between fat and naked men.

Surprisingly, "Sumo" wrestling has been continued since 110 year. It is supposed to show the health and strongness of men to the god. Therefore, there is a lot of strict manners, such as the wrestlers are not allowed to put on anything but "Mawashi", which is kind of shorts made by the silk. The wrestlers slap their belly before entering the ring and toss salt around a ring.

Nowadays, there are many non-Japanese wrestlers, such as Mongolian, Russian, Bulgarian, Georgian, Estonian, and so on. The top of the wrestlers, "Yokozuna" are 2 Mongolians now.

The difference of "Sumo" wrestling can be the style of fight. They normaly push and it doens't take long to finish, so people tend to get excited in the short time, only one or 2 minutes. I guess it's one of
the reason why all people love "Sumo".

When you go to see "Sumo", you can be shocked to see that many drunk Japanese people shouting and the wrestlers are fighting in such a small ring.

It's a little sad to say good bye to our guests all the time, but also we are pleased to meet the new guests from all over the world.

We,Japanese women are proud of wearing our traditional clothes "Kimono" on
the special occasion, such as a graduation from college, wedding ceremony, new years' events...

Now it's the time to graduate from university in Japan. If you were lucky, you could see many women and men wearing "Kimono" on the street. I hope it would be a good experience for you to join our annual local events.

Don't forget saying, "Omedeto!!!" to them. It means "Congratulations" in Japanese.

"HANAMI" is coming soon!!!

Do you know "HANAMI" in Japan?

We love 'Sakura', cherry blossoms, and appreciate its beauty every spring. 'Sakura' is the flower of Japan, and represents the peace and happiness. All Japanese have their own memories of 'Sakura'.

During 'Sakura' is blooming, we have a party under the 'Sakura' trees. This is called "HANAMI" in Japanese. It's just for one week to see the 'Sakura', so we will be crazy to enjoy the beauty of 'Sakura' as much as we can.

Spring can be the best season in Japan. If you are planning to visit Japan, do not miss the coming "HANAMI" season, and you guys have to join Japanese parties.

Try 'SAKE and HANAMI' celebration this Spring!!!
