Fantastic tour. Appreciated the guide's good English skills and her explanation about the history of Sumo. Even more detail would have been interesting - is sumo rooted in religion? how did it evolve over the years etc. The question answer period was also quite informative and the sumo wrestlers' personalities were entertaining and engaging. Great for kids as well.

This was a wonderful, interactive way to learn about Sumo wrestling. Our 2 retired sumo wrestlers were delightful. I am so glad that I signed up for this event. It is a must do on a trip to Tokyo!

Amazing experience, we were taught the sumo culture, had a sumo demo, then got to wrestle the sumos, then had a fantastic high protein sumo lunch. 10/10 experience, and I would recommend it to anyone.
