Fantastic tour guide and excellent experience.
Very enjoyable event, something to be seen if you are lucky enough to be in Japan when the matches are on. Guides know a lot about Sumo and are very happy to explain the whole competition from the clothes worn to the procedure of salt throwing to the banner shows before each match.
If you want to visit the tourist shops inside the stadium, turn up early. I arrived at 2 pm and just went straight to the hall with the guides. The sumo matches are televised and as such, need to finish by 6 pm. So they ran the matches back to back. The souvenir shops are located on a different floor to the seating areas and close before the matches end. I had a choice of visiting the shops or watching the main event.
Finally, the people who actually book your ticket and accompany you to the show are excellent. They speak English, are friendly and very patient. I found the customer service team with Viator to be the exact opposite. I booked tickets for this show in January, had questions about the timing - wasn't sure if I could make it - spoke to 3 different people in Viator who promised to get back in touch with the required details. It's mid-Feb. and I am still waiting for a reply. If you are pushed for time, have questions or need assistance, don't use Viator.
Awesome! The tour guide was great, she was a true fan of the sport. Presentation was excellent and entertaining. A must see when in Tokyo.
Well worth it, excellent English speaking guide and very well organised. Get to the meeting place early as you can spend some time locating the meeting place for the tour.
Tour was great. Have always wanted to see sumo live and finally got the chance. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend if you are in town at this time
It really improved the experience having a guide with us. Well worth the price to guarantee the tickets and the added service of having someone take you there and during the tournament. She gave us a personal explanation sheet of all the Sumo wrestlers and their trademark moves. We continued to watch the tournament the week afterwards on tv paying special attention to the Sumos that the guide pointed out to us.
The sumo tour was excellent and we had a great time watching the tournament. The guide Halle did a great job explaining who the wrestlers are and how the tournament operated.
We were lucky enough to be in Tokyo right on time for the tournament. Great information was provided by our tour guide.
This was an absolute treat. It was so interesting and having the background knowledge of the tour guide to learn so much more about the sport made the whole experience a highlight of our trip. We went with 3 families with children as young as 10 and all of us had a great time. If ever you are in Japan, Sumo is a must.
Our tour guide was excellent. She explained the history about the sport and provided us with a listing of each wrestler with information about the person. She answered all of our questions and was so helpful and polite. What can be said about the match but that it's amazing!!!
