What is Kyo Tsuzura?
Kyo-Tsuzura is a tool called “Akeni”, which is used by Japanese sumo wrestler (called Rikishi in Japanese) to carry various tools during their tour of Japan in the main tournament. The name of the Rikishi is painted on the side, and it is so sturdy that it will not break even when a heavy Rikishi sits on it. The main material used is bamboo, which makes it light and easy to carry. The secret of its strength and lightness lies in the layers of materials used, including Japanese paper and lacquer, in addition to the original bamboo material.
