Very early in the day’s matches before most the the crowd arrived, I managed to get up close to the action on the stadium floor. Here’s one entire low-level sumo match.
Pardon the occasional manic shaking and the salary man that walks in front of the camera. I was worried enough about being out of place in a Japanese arena that I didn’t stick around to film a second match.
Point of interest: the costumes of the referees are said to mimic the dress of the medieval Ashikaga shogun era.
