Excellent tour. Well organized and a great show. Highly recommended!
This tour was awesome, highlight of my time in Japan. Awesome seats - good tour guide (we had Honda) who spoke decent English and was very informative. I will recommend this tour to all my friends who go to Japan.
Excellent tour not to be missed! Tour guide was also
excellent and explained many things about the sport.
I loved my tour with you to the Tokyo Sumo Wrestling Tournament. The tour guide was extremely helpful
in her overall explaination when we started. She helped to direct and guide us in our travel by rail. She
made every efforrt to come around even to our seats. and explain during the tournament when we arrived.
She took us to the museum and explained as we went through before out seating when the tournament
began. Afterward we were taken to a traditional Japanese meal which was beautifully prepared and served. I thought the place chosen for the meal was excellent and also close in walking from where the
tournament took place. We were able to from the guides helpful directions find out way close by back to
the train to take our ride even with several transfers back to our hotel. I was very pleased with the entire

Very well organised tour, guide kept us well informed and the sumo was very entertaining!
Fantastic. If you are in Japan when one of these are on, definitely go The meal afterwards was fantastic.
Took this tour for the boys, us girls thought it would be ho hum, how wrong were we. It was exciting, informative, full of ceremony and our time watching the matches flew by, those wrestlers are wonderful. The tour company were very helpful as we wanted to change our pick-up point, nothing was to much trouble and everything went to plan. Highly recommend this tour
This was an absolutely amazing tour. I would recommend this to anyone that goes to Tokyo. It was informative and very exciting.
went in september,and a competition was taking place,great seat,great time.
well worth it.
So much fun to be able to see this. It only happens 3 times a year so make sure you book it if you are there when it is happening. You will get to see the wrestlers arrive and they are quite the celebrities. It is fun to watch and the matches are quick so it is easy to follow. Our guide was very knowledgable and even put a little pamphlet together for us to help explain the ranks of the wrestlers. Seats are kind of far but you can still see the matches very well. You can bring your own food in if you wish. It can be hot in there but I think they weren't expecting such hot weather at the end of September. Be ready to take the metro there with the guide. Taking the metro back can be tricky since the JR line is right beside the arena but the metro is a down the back and down the street and difficult to find but the guide will help navigate you so ask before you leave. I highly recommend seeing this since it is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity!
