Sumo wrestling isn’t limited to Japan. The country’s national sport has gone worldwide in a big way. Which is why we’re traveling from Japan to California to Mongolia to examine the culture and traditions that make sumo so fascinating. Along the way, the sport’s top hairdresser, Kato Akira, schools us in sumo hairstyles in Tokyo. And in Hollister, California, we step into the ring with America’s top sumo wrestler, Roy Sims, who explains why it’s the perfect sport for a pacifist like himself.
