Japanese parents bring the babies to the contest and truly believe that sumo induced crying keeps their children in good health, and wards off evil spirits.
In this contest, amateur sumo wrestlers try to scare the baby by holding him high in the air.
The toddler who cries longest and loudest will be declared the winner.
The more the babies cry, the cuter they look...the more people laugh... Naku sumo is a baby crying festival in Japan. Weird.
