Sumo Full House Towel

Traditional Japanese wrestling tournament bath accessory

The Japanese include it in their list of nine officially recognized martial arts, and the main arena in Tokyo even refers to it as the national sport, but no matter how you classify it, sumo depends on its audience to survive and this is why filling all the seats in its arenas is so important. And it's why the sumo souvenir shops stock various goods with the phrase "man-in on-rei," which means "thank you for a full house." And one example of these is the Sumo Full House Towel!

The Sumo Full House Towel is about 33 x 84 cm (13 x 33"), a size that is very common in Japan because it is used as a washcloth in public baths and onsen hot springs. It is made in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture, Japan's center for top-quality cotton towels, and is decorated with the Japanese characters for "thank you for a full house," written in the special font often used in sumo with thick angular lines. And the towel is part of the Nihon Sumo Kyokai (Japan Sumo Association) merchandise lineup!
