The Sumo Wrestling Ring, or the dohyō, is a ring used in the sport of Sumo and is traditionally made of clay and rice straw bales. There are two white lines, Shikiri lines, at the center of the ring to designate where the combatants position themselves behind these lines at the start of the bout.

The sumo dohyō is mainly for indoor sports wrestling events for wrestlers with a heavier set. The fine-brushed sand around the ring determines whether a wrestler has his body or foot outside the ring during a sumo fight. A roof structure called the tsuriyane is suspended over the ring.

Sumo is a type of combative sport, where two individuals attempt to throw the opposing player onto the ground or outside of the rounded boundary. Invented and practiced in Japan, the sport is typically preformed by sumo wrestlers who are heavier set in weight and thereby stronger in force.
