Sumo fans meet Takamiyama

Sumo fans got to meet and greet sumo wrestling legend Jesse Kuhaulua, otherwise known as Takamiyama, in Moiliili on Friday night.

He is the first person born outside of Japan to win in the top division.

Takamiyama signed a mural of himself that hangs at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii gallery.

Proceeds from a silent auction that included some of his nostalgic promotional items go to the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii.
