Souvenirs from around the world: Sumo wrestler figurine from Tokyo, Japan

Souvenirs from around the world: Sumo wrestler figurine from Tokyo, Japan

Here’s a cute little Sumo wrestler figurine I got from Tokyo, Japan a while back in 2007.  I got it from the airport for about $10, and it was one of those last minute items.  It’s kind of funny that I went shopping a lot in Tokyo but I almost forgot to buy a souvenir.  This caught my attention since it’s so chunky and has such a funny pose.

I’m not quite sure what material its made from but its breakable (I don’t think its glass but maybe ceramic?).  I’m so glad that I got this souvenir because it is my ONLY souvenir from Japan at the moment.  While I did have clothing, shoes and cosmetics, this was the only item that I can put on display.

Do you have a souvenir from Japan?
