    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.

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. Luckily this tour includes a local guide who will pick you up from your hotel and thoroughly prep you on everything you need to know before watching the sumos in their morning training rituals. It's a unique Japanese experience and far more than just a fight, as you'll soon find out...

    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.
