Sumo is the national sport of Japan, in which two very large wrestlers attempt to force each other from a circular ring measuring 4.5 meters in diameter. Many rituals and traditions are associated with the sport of sumo, and each wrestler's costume consist of nothing more than a colorful silk belt wrapped around his waist and loins. Sumo is year-round sport, with tournaments called basho that last for two weeks during alternate months. A sumo basho is held for each season of the year, (Hatsu, Haru, Natsu, and Aki), with two regional events in between. Sumo tournaments are festive, all-day affairs, attended by thousands of spectators bearing food and beverages to sustain them throughout the day's competition.

A giant Buddha sits atop Mt. Bagua in the Tri-Mountain National Scenic Area in central Taiwan. Originally named Mt. Wangluo, the mountain served as a strategic garrison during the Qing Dynasty. For this reason, it was also called Dingjunshan, meaning "Garrison Mountain." In the 18th century, its name was changed to Mt. Bagua because its shape resembled the famous Eight Trigrams (Bagua) of the ancient Book of Changes. Mt. Bagua, located on the eastern outskirts of Changhua City, has a panoramic view of the city from its peak, at an elevation of 100 meters. It is well known for its black 70 meters-high statue of Buddha.

Buddhist monks in traditional robes can be seen walking the streets of Japan's metropolitan cities every day. Along with Shintoism, Zen Buddhism is one of two major religions that coexist in Japan. Each serves its own realm, with Shintoism relating to nature, ancestry and earthly matters, while Buddhism presides over spirituality and the afterlife.
