Sumo Wrestlers Morning Practice & Special Access Viewing

Reviewed by: Joyce, 2020/01/04

Our tour guide was EXCELLENT! Her impeccable explanations surpassed expectations! I had so much more to talk about but there was not enough time afterwards as transportation took awhile. Hope to do this again...soon! May she have continued success escorting visitors.

Amazing Sumo Morning Practice

Reviewed by: Amanda, 2019/05/01

This was by far one of the coolest experiences we had during our three week trip to Japan. Our amazing tour guide (wish I could remember how to spell his name), met us in the lobby of our hotel then took us by train to the sumo stable. Before getting there he gave a us a helpful rundown about sumo wrestling and what to expect. At the practice we sat front row, close enough to touch the wrestler's. Seeing how strong and big they're was impressive. We also got to see just how hard they work. The only downside was sitting cross-legged on a thin mat for an hour and a half, which was a bit uncomfortable. I had to keep shifting my position.This may not be a good tour choice for someone who has knee or back problems. Because we were visiting during Golden Week, the main stadium building was open and we got to see that and the Sumo Museum as well. Just to give you an idea of how wonderful our guide was, after our sumo tour he took us via train to Tokyo Dome and helped us buy tickets for that days baseball game. He totally went out of his way to help us and did it all with a smile. What a world class tour guide and overall experience.

Wonderful Sumo Experience

Reviewed by: Luchi Villarica, 2015/04/18

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, we had a beautiful walking tour of the cherry blossoms along Chidorigafuchi park, a glimpse of the North Entrance of the Imperial Palace, and the Yasukuni shrine.

Also included in the sumo tournament experience was the bowl of soup/Chanko nabe which was delicious.
