japanese wrestling

Flag of Japan  , Kinki,
Friday, November 11, 2011

So someone at the hotel desk tells me that the local coledge has organised a night out at the wrestling with foreign visitors in the area.How could I  refuse!.It was japanese style masked wrestling,like mexican wrestling only with more martial arts finesse and sillier comedy.then we went to dinner and beer in a hole in the wall establishment,bessa block and milk crates in Shin Imamiya.I even got to practice some French and my 3 words of Japanese and 2 of Osaka Ben.
A good time was had by all!

Hi Ian,
I finally found your blog and I love it. Your photos are outstanding. I don't understand many of the Japanese terms but it certainly seems like you've well and truly scratched beneath the surface of life in Osaka. Please let me know when you do updates - my email is
