Two cats and Sumo wrestlers live happily together in the Arashio Sumo Stable in Nihonhamamachi, Tokyo.

Moru used to be a street cat in Fukuoka.
He is calm, but a strong minded cat.

Mugi was abandoned in front of the stable one day.
He is a home bird and never likes to go out from the Sumo wrestler's room.
He makes strange, but is very attached.

All members including the stable master and twelve Sumo wrestlers are featured on the pages. You will be calmed by seeing the distinct contrast in the wrestler's smile when with the cats as opposed to when the wrestlers are training and fighting.

This photobook also includes information on the Sumo wrestlers and stable besides the cats, Moru and Mugi.
Highly recommended for Sumo beginners and people living outside of Japan. This photo book is written in dual languages both in Japanese and English.
