Photo Journal: Wok and roll

Contestants take part in a special sumo bout while kneeling down in woks, in Shintotsukawa, Hokkaido, on Jan. 28, 2018. The annually held event essentially consists of participants pushing each other with the palms of their hands, until either party falls out of their custom-made utensil. The contest is the main attraction of the Shintotsukawa Snow Festival and has been running since 1999. (Mainichi)
