Fodor's Review

Two bulls literally lock horns in sumo-style contests whose origins in these parts date back at least to the 17th century. If you can make it here during one of the five annual tournaments, you can experience these generally bloodless battles of muscle and will. Uwajima's bullfighting stadium is atop Mt. Maruyama (more of a hill than a mountain), a 30-minute walk or 10-minute cab ride from Uwajima Station.
