Calling all sumo fans! Popular Lower East Side chanko restaurant Azasu will host a very special event on April 1 with Kyokutenho, one of the most prestigious sumo wrestlers in Japan. Kyokutenho, who retired last summer, is on his retirement tour and is having a Chanko party in New York City prior to his retirement ceremony (topknot-cutting ceremony) at Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan in late May.

Chanko is a traditional hot pot dish for sumo wrestlers. This protein-rich stew is filled with chicken and vegetables, and Kyokutenho’s stable’s chanko-nabe master will serve the dish to customers during four two-hour sessions.
