Grand Sumo at Ryogoku kokugikan in Tokyo Japan ABOUT YUMITORISIKI

A sumo wrestler gives a performance with a long bow

after the last match of the day.

The performance used to be given by a champion wrestler of the grand sumo

tournament as "a winner's performance".

However, nowadays it is given by a wrestler who belongs to the sumo stable

which  has a Yokozuna rank wrestler.

In addition, it used to be performed at the end of the tournament,

but now it is performed after the last match of each day.

If the wrestler drops the bow in the performance, he needs to pick it up with his feet,

because  touching the ground with his hand means "defeat" in sumo rules.

Actually, however, performers are well trained, so I have never seen a wrestler drops

the bow in his performance.

This wrestler is SATONOFUJI. He belong to the sumo stable

which has a YOKOZUNA rank wrestler, "HARUMAFUJI".

He performed the with the bow very well.
