The Sumo Scene / Grand Sumo Tournament Wrestlers Find Power in Local Food; Powerful Wrestler Chiyonofuji Remembered

The Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament, taking place in Fukuoka, is the final grand sumo tournament of the year. Although still November, the sumo world is familiar with the sight of stablemasters checking their year-end and New Year schedules as they arrive in Kyushu. They say the year is coming to a close, so the overall atmosphere matches that sentiment.
To sumo wrestlers, however, it is a tournament in which they want to achieve a good result no matter what, so they can welcome the New Year with a positive feeling. To help them along, they need power, which they can get from gourmet food.
