Babies face off at annual sumo festival

About 100 babies took part in an annual sumo festival, competing to see which baby will cry first. Sumo wrestlers rocked babies and organizers wore colourful masks of foxes and demons in an attempt to make babies cry in Tokyo’s Sensoji Temple.

The traditional “Crying Sumo” event started in 1991 to wish for the health and well being of children.
