ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
The Hakkaku Stable sumo wrestler organization tweeted these photos of wrestlers flying to a training camp in Japan’s Shimane Prefecture.
The best photo in the set is 29 sumo dudes crammed into a relatively small JAL jet, above.
Here they are jammed into a bus.
Now they're squeezed into seats at a diner.
I was enjoying the series of pleasantly claustrophobic images until I stumbled on this weird one where the wrestlers put on a show in blackface. Wait, WTF.
