Sumo wrestling is a seasonal affair in Japan. Should you happen to find yourself touring in the land of the rising sun when the matches are going on, you are in luck. It's simply a unique and memorable experience. Service-wise, the guide is extremely knowledgeable about the sumo customs and is very attentive to our needs. Heck, she even went to each one of us in our seat to explain which match is going on. Thumbs up for the good service!
The rendezvous spot was difficult to find due to the complexity of Hamamatsu station, but the guide was fluent in English, passionate about sumo and explained the subject clearly and thoroughly. The live radio commentary that you can rent was also an useful addition that helps with understanding the matches better. One shortcoming was that our seat was located right above and behind an entrance, and many incoming visitors were blocking our view as a result. Overall, the tour was a good experience.
