Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Tokyo Sumo Wrestling Tournament. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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!
It was a great tour with a great guide but Viator coupon stated that pickup and drop off was included which was not the case only pickup was included - a problem for people that have yet experienced / got used to the Tokyo transportation systems.
Excellent, only problem was the instructions on how to return on the train were a little deficient, got lost.
We where so glad we took this tour , we would never have seen as much as we did without the thoughly knowledgable tour guide she was lovely and she was also able to advise us on further directions and restaurants . We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour
This tour was beyond my expectations and excellent value for money. I added the meal option and assumed that we would be taken to "just a restaurant" - but in fact we were taken to a nearby hotel and treated to a 5 star meal.
The guide went out of her way to help us enjoy our trip and spent as much time as we needed with
us before she went home.
The next time I go to Tokyo I shall definitely book this trip again.
I would recommend it to all.
went in september,and a competition was taking place,great seat,great time.
well worth it.
An absolute must!!! Without doubt one of the highlights of our 14 day trip.
Our friendly guide was very informative and add a new dimension to an already amazing experience.
SUMO??? A cultural experience we shall never ever forget.
Wonderful experience, background info from guide was very helpful in learning the basics of the sport.
Tour guide was knowledgeable. Awesome view of the bouts. Lots of souveniers and food available in the lobby. This was worth the time and money.
We really enjoyed the Sumo and the Viator tour was a great way to experience it. Our guide was Miki and she was excellent. She gave us lots of information about the sport and the players. During the matches she walked around to make sure everyone knew what was going on. Highly recommended!
