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 the designated meet up point in Tokyo 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!

    as no one contacted us to say where to meet, it was a complete waste of time. we woke up as early as 5 am to prepare for this but still no one contacted us, and from the other reviews, we noticed that others have experienced the same predicament. but we decided to just brave it by going to ryogoku station hoping to find someone who might lead us to the practice area. we arrived at 6:55am, and no one was there. we waited until 7:30am and decided to look for the sumo stables that was listed at the subway map in the surrounding area. we came across 2 stables but no one was outside to welcome us, u didnt expect us to just barge in and ask right?! this is was an expensive and a complete waste of time lesson for anyone wanting to experience this crap! Klook should take this out of their attraction until they improve themselves. I want my money back!

    We really enjoyed this experience. We arrived a little before our start time at the stable per the instructions via email that we received. Once everyone arrived we were led into the space and told to be quiet for the 60+ minutes, which was not a big deal. We were able to see the wrestlers warm up, practice, cool down and then were able to take a photo with a few of them at the end. My mom and my nephew also said it was our coolest experience in Japan and we were all happy we went.

    Terrible experience: we had to prepay the Trip and received a voucher which specified 2 meeting points. We went on time at one if the meeting points to find out this was not the correct one. We called the beauty of Japan agency and they told us we should still go to the other location even if we would be 1h late. Once at the other location, we were told the training has already finished. Even though it was clearly the agency's fault that we could not attend the practice, we still have not managed to receive a refund. I dont recommend this activity at all.

    it was supposed to be 2 hours long or so it says but it only lasted less than 30min. Not worth the price. Nice to see them tho.
  • Chun To 2 Sep 2018
    quite an interesting experience but it would be better to have some background information provided beforehand
  • Manuel 9 Aug 2018
    Great experience. Meeting point was directly at the stable. Free picture with sumo wrestlers at the end of training for free.
  • Veronica 11 Jun 2018
    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.

    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.
