Shima & Jambo made this whole experience a delight with their fun & interactive demonstration of the history & training/lifestyle of a Sumo wrestler. The lady who described and translated everything into English for us was very good at getting the information across. Recommended. I would go again.

This was SUCH a great experience. I went on a Monday and the wrestlers were amazing. They were so thorough in their instructions, explanations, and answers. It was also so fun and I was laughing the whole time! They make it so entertaining. One of the most memorable aspects of my trip. The Chanko soup was good and the bento box was decent. Love the whole experience.

This was one of our favorite activities in Tokyo. It was a great opportunity to see a sumo demonstration close up and to learn a lot about sumo. The hostess did a wonderful job clearly conveying all of the information. It was amazing to see how strong and agile the sumo wrestlers were. The audience participation was incredibly fun- both to watch and take part in. Everyone had a great time and the provided lunch was excellent. A wonderful and unique afternoon that we enjoyed very much.

This was the highlight of our time in Tokyo. Temples and food were great in the city, but this we got to learn about a part of the culture we couldn't learn about on our own. The retired sumo wrestlers taught us about the rules and what it's like to be a professional wrestler. Then we got to try on the sumo suits and wrestle :) it was so much fun I never stopped laughing!

If you want an insight into the world of Sumo then this is the tour for you. The 2 Sumo were retired professionals and are very willing to share their knowledge and answer any questions that you may have. Outgoing and friendly, they put you at ease, and you can "have a go" at sumo with one of them. Thoroughly enjoyable and I highly recommend this.

Brilliant attraction

Despite the late start, the attraction was nothing less than amazing. The two sumo wrestling were the nicest guys someone could ask for in an event like that - they were funny, polite, available for several pictures and answered everyone's question. Well, every staff there were pretty nice but defo the sympathy of the sumo wrestlings was a highlight. Ah! And we could eat and drink a refreshing tea as much as we could. Fantastic!
