There were six-year-olds and younger wrestling with adults. And here, at this place, you can have a beer, or some edamame, or some smoked salmon, or even smoke a cigarette if you wanted, and watch these children engage in this adult-style fighting tactics in a real live pro-wrestling size, shape, and equipment having ring. I even got to go in and make some faces myself.

And my friend got to wrestle, but she got pinned herself:

This, combined with the previous chickens in a tree, just makes me realize Japan is a place with much to be explored.
