photo reportage on sumo 2013/5/14 17:58
Dear Forum members,
in November I would like to go to Japan in order to proceed with my project "Wrestling - Nation - Culture" by making a photo reportage on Sumo.
I was planning to spend 1 week in Tokyo and then 1 week in Kyoto and I would be grateful if you could help me a bit...
- Are there any sumo stables in Kyoto? Do you have any email contact to them?
- As for Tokyo, do you have any email contact to Tokyo's sumo stables? I would like to write to them before explaining what my project is about and how I imagine my stay in the stable.
Thank you very much for any help.

No, they are all in the Tokyo area:

And I am pretty sure that they don't communicate by e-mail. And especially not in English. Unless you speak Japanese (and maybe even if you do), I think you will need a Japanese person who is familiar with the sumo world to help you approach a suitable stable. Even a simple visit to a morning practice is difficult on your own.
