Sumo referee is existence to increase color on the sumo ring where intense approach is developed. Since the Edo era, sumo referee judged approach with hemp old ceremonial dress (asagamishimo). Hemp old ceremonial dress which is formal dress of samurai was sumo wrestler and thing which we were able to take of harmony, but changes to court dress (hitatare), formal headwear for court nobles (Eboshi) figure in (1910) May in 1910.

In addition, we display including referee's fan and pillbox (pillbox), short sword which sumo referee wears.
