Katsuragi City Sumo Museum Kehayaza

葛城市相撲館けはや座

Katsuragi is said to be the birthplace of sumo around 2,000 years ago, when a local, Taima no Kehaya, boasted of his strength and called for challengers.

Emperor Suinin ordered a match with another famed strong man and Taima no Kehaya was killed by a powerful kick. The sport of sumo, thankfully no longer fatal, was born.

This modern museum features a full sized ring where you can try wrestling, and a collection of items related to the sport. Entry is free for visitors with a foreign passport.
