Once upon a time, deep in the mountains, there lived an old couple who worked day after day in exhaustion, toiling up and down the mountain field. One night, the old man stepped outside and noticed a group of mice headed somewhere. He quietly follows them to find mice gathered for a sumo tournament. When the old man and his wife learn that their home mice are always losing, they start preparing a special feast of saury fish dumplings and grilled tofu with miso sauce. They even make new red sumo uniforms for their mice team. What will happen in the next sumo games?

Cool short animation movie to be seen in the Studio Ghibli museum! Saw this one in Oct 2018, no idea how long they show it for, or if they rotate their films at the museum? I have heard of other animated shorts playing there, but unfortunately the museum ticket only allows you to watch 1 screening per visit. Even though not subbed, still highly enjoyable for all ages to see the funny story of the husband and wife farmers supporting the sumo mice facing off against the larger sumo mice (i believe come from a wealthy home) and seeing the battle....definitely give it a watch if in the Ghibli museum!!
