Sumo fans will enjoy this museum in Kawayu Onsen township dedicated to legendary hometown hero, Taihō (大鵬; 1940–2013). He was born on Karafuto (Sakhalin) to a Ukrainian father and Japanese mother, brought up in Kawayu Onsen, and went on to become one of the greatest yokozuna (grand champions) of all time. Taihō retired in 1971.
