No trip to Japan is complete without sumo, and this is the best way to get a first-hand look at the rituals, training and power of these incredible athletes. See real sumo live and up-close as you watch their daily morning practice. The early morning training bouts start with the lowest ranking wrestlers practicing against their stable mates in the ring, and progressively the more powerful, high ranking wrestlers will take over. Take this chance and watch as they prepare for the tournaments. After practice is over, chat and take a few pictures with them, with your friendly guide.
Guides are available for English, Chinese, and many other languages too!

Requirement(s) - Others
    • Please keep in mind the following rules during the visit:
      - A sumo stable is not a tourist facility. Sumo wrestlers train very hard and seriously. Please make sure to show respect to the stable master and wrestlers.
      - Please watch the training quietly and do not walk around the stable.
      - Please be quiet in the stable. Even whispering may disturb the wrestlers.
      - Do not stand in the ring or on the sandy ground.
    • - At the entrance of the stable, please take off your shoes. Then sit cross-legged on the floor. Don't stretch your legs toward the ring. It is considered impolite to show the soles of your feet to the wrestlers.
      - Please take off your hat and sunglasses.
      - Do not eat, drink, or smoke inside the stable.
      - You can take photos during the training, but do not stand or move about. Please do not use flash or cameras with loud shutters.
    • - Once you start watching the training, you are supposed to stay until the wrestlers finish their training. So please be sure not to leave the stable during the training.

Hotel pick-up from Shiraira Yukiko. She is a very informative and pleasant tour guide. We were lucky because it wasn't only a sumo practice that we experienced but also a tournament. Prior to that...more
