    Activity was fantastic! Giving it 4 stars because Klook gave me the wrong time and we ended up meeting getting there 1 hour in advanced. We had to wait around for over an hour since Klook would not refund us for their lack of communication.

What To Expect

It's a fair statement to say that sumo wrestling must be one of the world's most unique national sports. Sumo originated in Japan as early as the 1600s and Japan remains the only country where this heavyweight sport is practiced professionally. Fighters live in communal 'stables' where every aspect of their daily lives is dictated by strict tradition. These traditions, etiquette and customs are not taken lightly. Many sumo stables are not open to foreign visitors and for those that are, even spectactors are expected to adhere to certain rules. Meet up with your tour group outside Oedo Line Ryogoku station Exit A2 before you visit to the stables and watch the wrestlers practice the art of sumo. Make sure not to eat, talk loudly, or take photos with bright flashes or loud noises so you don't distract the wrestlers!

    The guide, Kota-san was really kind as he went back for us because we arrived a little late. He was also very knowledgeable about Sumo and answered all of our questions well.

    This is a really unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience, and it's worth every penny. One note: you'll be sitting on the floor for around two hours, unable to move, so wear comfortable clothes and use the bathroom before you enter the stable. Older kids would probably enjoy this, but for younger kids, it might get boring and they might get impatient and antsy, so keep that in mind if you're traveling with a family.

    The sumo practice was a sight to behold and its not a walk in the park for these wrestlers. The tour could be better organized in terms of the meeting location, as well as a informative sharing of the history, rankings, matches before commencing on the tour. Otherwise its just a group of gawking tourists looking at the sumos, with no appreciation of the history and their daily routine.

    The experience watching Sumo practice was great. But in the overview, they indicated that the pickup point and drop off point would be in Ryogoku station. But when we received our voucher, pick up point was changed to the sumo location itself. (We had to take taxi or uber by ourselves) Also, before the practice starts.. there was no introduction nor explanations given to us outside. They just gave us the rules what not to do inside but they did not give a short background about sumo. Nothing at all. They just let us in, sit, watch then bye afterwards. That's it.

    so awesome! this was an experience not to miss! it was fascinating to see the wrestlers train and to get a better understanding of their training and lifestyle. *note if you have back problems, I don't recommend this activity! you have to sit on the floor for up to 3 hours and you can't stretch your legs out in front of you, so it gets a bit uncomfortable. but otherwise, this is worth every penny!

    Great experience to visit the sumo wrestlers in person. Trip was very organised and the tour guide was friendly and helpful.
  • Ka Tung 29 Dec 2017
    Plain history has a long history, fortunate enough to personally go to watch their usual training, it is indeed a good experience.
