Japan's national sport is part ritual, part entertainment. Sumo's rikishi—massive wrestlers dressed in loincloth—have become one of the symbols Japan is frequently associated with. In this activity, you will have the rare opportunity of training under two former sumo wrestlers. You will learn how to wear mawashi as well as exercise basic sumo moves. You will also get to participate in a practice match.

Want to bring a friend who's not as keen? No problem. Choose spectator as add-on and your friend can watch and cheer you on as you unleash your inner sumo wrestler.
