~*~ Sumo~*~

On Saturday, my teacher, peers and I went to go see Sumo! At first, we waited outside to watch the sumo wrestlers as they walked into the entrance.  They had on their kimono robes with their hair in ponytails.  Many stood outside to cheer them on as we took pictures of them passing by!   This was my first sumo match and I did not know what to expect.  As we left to go inside the stadium, we found our seats way at the top. There were so many people who came out to watch the wrestlers.

Before entering the stadium, there were a few concession stands that sold food and souvenirs.  Half way through the match, a couple of my peers and I went to get ice cream ( a favorite in Japan), and to buy some sumo souvenirs as well. At this event, I noticed people were able to bring in their own food to enjoy. Many places in the US would not allow you to do as such. Also, we saw a form of advertising when after a match was completed, men would walk around the stage holding banners of companies. One I remember is McDonalds.  This experience was quite different but I enjoyed it at times especially when a match was intense.
