On Saturday I tried Chankonabe, a Japanese stew served to sumo wrestlers to help gain weight. The meal started off with a huge bowl of raw meat and another full of veggies. The protein included chicken, fish meat balls, and tofu. My Japanese friends handled adding the meats and veggies to the pot of boiling water. After feeling completely stuffed, they ordered a huge portion of white rice and raw eggs and added that to the remaining broth and then we ate that.

Also included were these amazing place mats, listing the sumo rankings. I asked if there were many foreign born wrestlers, and there were, their names are written in Katakana of course.
