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...
