"According to Japanese legend, the very origins of the Japanese race depended on a sumo match". That's the first line of the pamphlet they hand you at the grand tournament. What I thought was some big guys throwing down in a small ring is really a 1500 year old Shinto ceremony with more intricacies & tradition than I could grasp in a full day of watching. And it's intense. Feel lucky I got to see & learn some. #sumo #nagoya #bigboys #makuuchi #nannventures

Thanks Glen for the photo. A little about Yamamotoyama. He made his professional debut in January 2007, and reached the top #makuuchi division in January 2009. His highest rank was maegashira 9. At 265 kg (584 lb), #Yamamotoyama is the heaviest #Japanese-born sumo wrestler in history, and is also thought to be the heaviest Japanese person ever. #snapback #sports #newstyle #fashionstatement #clothingline #clothing #clothes #streetwear #streetfashion #streetwearbrand #instawear #instafashion #instastreetwear #menswear #womenswear #urbanstreetwear #fifty150brand #sneakers www.Fifty150Brand.com

That time when you meet a #Sumo champion right after he won his bout (aka match)! 🥇🇯🇵💪
