Introduction of The Festival

Netteizumo Hyogo Pref

Netteizumou, a name of Sumo (Japanese wrestling) in the Mizutani Shrine, is a traditional ritual ceremony handed down since long time ago. They wrestle without a referee and a sumo ring. It is said to be an original form of Sumo, similar to “Sumai no sechie,” the Imperial ceremony of Sumo wrestling conducted in the Heian period (792-1192 A.D.).
