Japan-Mongolia Cultural Exchange Exhibition
Part 1: Hakuho Photo Exhibition to Commemorate All-time Winning Makuuchi Wrestler
Hakuho's historical solo record win for the 33rd time at a January grand sumo tournament was a splendid opportunity to feel the strong ties that bind Japan and Mongolia through the culture of sumo. A commemorative photography exhibition will be held at ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE.
This exhibit showcases the 39 photographs of Hakuho owned by The Mainichi Newspapers, and traces the history of victory from the first makuuchi win in 2006 to the recent 33rd in January 2015.
The success at a grand sumo tournament of a sumo wrestler hailing from Mongolia has brought Mongolian sumo to wide public attention in Japan, and it is believed that this photo exhibition, along with the upcoming exhibition of the Japanese-Mongolian Calligraphy Exhibition, will make a significant contribution to encouraging bilateral understanding and cultural exchange.
