  • Jia Lin 22 May 2018

  • Sarah 8 Jun 2018
    A once in a lifetime experience! Very experienced and passionate guide that has a lot of knowledge about the event and background of sumo wrestling. We met at a hotel nearby and stopped by at the museum before going to the actual tournament. It started with a ceremony where all wrestlers come on stage. Definitely recommended and not to be missed!
  • Nicholette P 19 May 2018
    Easy to meet at pick up location. Very thorough tour guide. Watching the sumo wrestling was very cool and we were very lucky that the tournament time well for our visit in Tokyo. Beforehand we even were able to see a few sumos walking the streets nearby. This was pretty cool too.
  • Efrain 22 Sep 2018
    Great activity, totally worth it. The tour guide that took us there was very passionate about the subject, always making sure she was sharing the most up to date information on the contestants, such as last time they won, who was the current champion, heaviest, younguest, etc., even which contestant was the “ladies man” and who got married just a year ago. Overall a great experience. Seats weren’t bad too, and the location is also good, with plenty of places to eat. However, many of the locals speak little to no English, so stick with the tour guide or hotel concierges for recommendations.
  • NS 17 Sep 2018
    Wonderful experience to watch the Grand Sumo Tournament, atmosphere was great, one of the checklist not to miss in Tokyo. Tour guide is also friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
  • Yang 25 Jan 2019

  • Laura 22 Jan 2019
    It was very interesting to watch. A lot of ritual occurs between bouts, which is cool to see. The crowd was very engaged.
