Info

Wrestlers of the Professional Sumo Team (Musahigawa Beya): the members of Miyabiyama's Sumo Team cook and eat together while practicing for a tournament in Nagoya. The younger ones do most of the work. Sumos cook and eat chanko nabe, a stew pot of vegetable and meat or fish, at nearly every meal. It is eaten with copious amounts of rice and numerous side dishes. Miyabiyama eats now to maintain his weight rather than to gain it, unlike the younger less gargantuan wrestlers in his stable who are eating a lot to pack on weight.
