(199) Breakfast of champions


More accurately, also the lunch, supper and snack of champions (and generally wrestlers) of sumo. It is a soup called “chanko nabe” (“ちゃんこ鍋”) which contains about everything and which is eaten five times a day in all sumo “stables” (i.e. training places/boarding houses). Those outside the sumo circuit can enjoy it in various restaurants of the Ryogoku (両国) area, the sumo “capital” of Tokyo.
