Well worth the cost. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Also learning about the sumo traditions and how much dedication goes into becoming a sumo.
Tour guide was excellent
Awesome experience, really knowledgable and helpful tour guide (Mitchiko), highly recommended!
Loved it! Excellent tour guide, informative gave us a good general knowledge of what was going on during the competition. Thoroughly recommended.
Great experience. Highly recommended for any visitor. The tour guide was excellent.
Meki was our tour guide and very informative and friendly. We had a great time. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone. Must see.
Second time I took this tour. It continues to be an excellent venue. I was unsuccessful booking tickets directly online for the last day of the Tokyo Basho. Fortunately, Viator was the only source which had tickets. Love sumo and the last day was quite exciting with a playoff for the title.
Well worth it. A fascinating and memorable experience. The Chanko dinner was interesting , not so fussed about fish eyes..
Really good tour, guide had a high level of knowledge of Sump and spoke good english.
Great to hear our local guide's background on sumo as a national sport. The radios with English language broadcast at the tourney helped us get engaged the same way as if we were at a baseball game!
An excellent tour embracing tradition, suspense, color and excitement. We were at the opening ceremony which was fantastic. We had our 10yr old daughter with us-she loved it but was frightened when she met one in the corridor. Our Guide was wonderful, she explained traditions, the rules and was so insightful-a great guide. This is a definite 'MUST do' when you visit Japan.
Never seen or been to a Sumo Wrestling Tournament. A very different atmosphere to what I expected it to be. Really enjoyed the tournament.
