This Sumo practice was a highlight of our trip to Tokyo. Our guide Ayaka was lovely, gave us lots of information about the visit before we walked to the stable. We recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo.

I booked this tour to learn a bit about sumo wrestling. Yumiko was a fantastic guide, she met us early at the location by the JR train station and then took the time to explain what we were going to see when we went to the Sumo stable. She then took us with a few to the Sumo stable. Additionally, during the practice she wrote additional notes to help us understand what we were seeing. It was an overall fascinating experience.

The tour was very interesting. We saw the wrestlers practice for over an hour. There was a brief introduction beforehand. All in all, I recommend. There is no lunch or other activities with the tour.

We enjoyed watching the training. It was a rare opportunity to see the life of Sumo wrestlers. We were allowed to photograph the training and the wrestlers, and had a posed photo opportunity with them at the end of the session.

If you can't get to one of the 6 official Sumo Tournaments then the morning training tour is a well worthwhile alternative - it was an amazing experience. We were able to watch the wrestlers warm up and do general exercises but also take part in actual fights to practice their techniques. We had hoped that we may see some wrestling but was surprised how much we did get to see. It wasn't a display for tourists but full on fighting with their peers. Just amazing and highly recommended!

Unique Insight

I can't think of a better way to experience Sumo in some small way other than to get ringside seats at a Grand Tournament, We were sitting on thin cushion pads inches from the student wrestlers and they were giving their all. They are clearly pushed hard and this is no 'put on for tourists show' as they were at times reduced to tears. Be aware that our timing was brought forward without much notice - check emails the day prior.

Une expérience inoubliable. Nous sommes très proches des sumotoris : nous les entendons souffler, souffrir, nous sentons le sol vibrer. Petit à petit, nous comprenons les règles, les tactiques, et les codes de ce sport. Une super matinée avec une bonne organisation et un guide sympathique.
