Attached to the Ryōgoku Kokugikan Sumo Arena, the Sumo Museum is a small, quirky gallery dedicated to the history of Japan's national sport. Largely assembled by its first curator Sakai Tadamasa, the collection comprises Nishiki-e (woodblock prints), sumo dolls, banzuke (official listings of rank), and Kesho-mawashi (ceremonial aprons worn by rikishi).
