Sumo "keiko" or practice at a sumo stable in Tokyo. Sumo is a competitive sport in Japan where two wrestlers attempt to force one another out of a circular ring. The Japanese consider sumo a kind of martial art and the sumo tradition is very ancient. Even today the sport includes many ritual elements, such as the use of salt for purification, harking back to the days when sumo was used in the Shinto religion.
