Nakizumo Crying Baby Festival

1-year old babies are held by Sumo wrestlers to see which baby cries first (or the loudest). The tears are believed to be healthy for growing babies and scare away evil spirits. Two competitions are held, the first at 11:10AM and the second at 14:20PM.

If you’re interested in learning about Sumo culture, you can book our Sumo Walking Tour.
