Sumo wrestlers hold up babies in a sumo ring who compete against each other by crying. People wish for the children to grow up healthy and strong. The event was first held to commemorate the five-year anniversary of the reconstruction of the statue of the 9th Ichikawa Danjuro, a famous Kabuki actor portrayed in his role as Shibaraku.
