Just a 10 minute walk from our hotel is the famed sumo tournament building, where sumo wrestlers are gearing up for the grand tournament on September 25. We caught a glimpse of them outside the arena, and plan to attend a tournament tomorrow. Their fashion is myriad and impeccable.
In the afternoon, we watched a kabuki play at the Kabuki-za Theater. Kabuki is a traditional Japanese play with strange voices, archic Japanese, and an all-male cast (including women parts). No filming is allowed inside, but this is the outside of the theater.
