Sumo wrestling: really big guy wrestling in the dirt floor area,
definitely cultural experience, and they certainly don't have this in north America.
It's worth watching it in a indoor sports complex.
It isn't everyday that a person watches sumo wrestling with hundreds of crowds that come just to watch them perform their strategic, wrestling move, where everything is authentic.
I personally like the authenticity of this sport in japan.
You can enjoy watching and be entertained by the wrestlers.
Always be sure to check scheduling if seeing the sumo wrestling is a must for you -- before moving to Japan I figured the events were year round, but it's only certain times of the year.
