Sumo and Rice

10 09 2009

We now have tickets to the O-Sumo Grand Tournament in Tokyo this month. Yay! We have arena tickets for the 20th September. When we first bought our TV we watched a bit of sumo so it will be good to see it live in Tokyo. However we’d better be careful that we don’t get swine flu as many sumo wrestlers have come down with swine flu recently.

Also, I bought 2 winter jackets for under $30 total from the Second Street store which should keep me warm in the snow, ice and freezing wind that we’re anticipating over autumn and winter. Spring in April this year was cold enough, so winter is bound to be FREEZING, especially if we head to Sapporo.

The rice was all harvested in Kisarazu by the first week of September. Here’s what the fields look like now with the tops of the rice cut off.
