Hi, this is Kota. I have been guiding about Sumo for over 3 years now. I just started guiding about Sumo, as my company send me to there, but since I go to the Sumo stable almost everyday, some of Sumo wrestlers became friend of mine and I go out for dinner with them sometimes. Having time with them outside, brings many "Wow" culture of Sumo to me. Let me take you to Sumo stable, and introduce my friends.
