History of Sumo Shrine

According to the The Nihon Shoki, the second-oldest guide on Japanese record (posted in 720 A.D. and usually viewed as much more precisely recounting actual occasions compared to Kojiki, the oldest Japanese book which is more concerned with the legends for the gods), a sumo bout took place right here between a nearby swaggerer called Taima no Kuehaya and Nomi no Sukune from Izumo (present-day Shimane Prefecture).

The bout ended up being arranged because of the Emperor Suinin who had been the celebrated ruler of Yamato during the early first century.

Nomi no Sukune, supposedly an ancestor of this scholar Sugawara no Michizane (845-903), prevailed within the bout killing his adversary by breaking his ribs and testicles.

Sumo Shrine, Nara, Japan.Nomi no Sukune was asked to dominate their opponent's land in which he along with his followers became the initial manufacturers of haniwa - terracotta clay numbers hidden using dead through the Kofun stage.
