SumoSumo is a Japanese kind of wrestling and Japan’s national sport. It originated in ancient times as religious performances to the Shinto gods. Nowadays, many ancient rituals are still followed.

The basic rules of sumo are simple: the wrestler who either first touches the floor with something other than his sole or leaves the ring before his opponent, loses.

We are pleased to welcome back "Kamikiiwa," "Koryu," and "Sunahama" for some super-sized fun at our festival. All three wrestlers are former professional sumo who now reside in Hawaii.
