Coralway’s 2012 Kengo Tarumi Winner


This is a photo I took in 2009 during Kitadaito’s main festival daitogusai.  This is during the second day when sumo wrestling takes place.  It is common for one or more demonstration matches to occur before the actual competitions start.  This is a ‘match’ between a man and his grandson.  Of course the grandson ‘won’.

This photo has been published in Japan Transocean Air’s (JTA) in-flight magazine ‘Coralway’ for their Okinawa based flights (Issue 139 for March and April 2012). It won the Kengo Tarumi Prize.
