Taiho Sumo Memorial Museum was established to honor the feats of Taiho, the 48th Yokozuna sumo champion, who grew up in Teshikaga Town in Hokkaido. This museum is located in a corner of a spa town so is easy to get to. You can follow his history from boyhood to his success as a champion sumo wrestler. You can come into contact with his glory as the champion. The ornamental apron and photos of his boyhood, and ones recognizing his spirit in some unforgettable bouts and some must-see footage are here.

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
