Here's a chance to get beyond the touristy stuff and witness a traditional and unique part of Japanese culture. Opt for the hearty chanko dinner for a true taste of the sumo wrestler lifestyle.
The tour guide was exceptional in his knowledge of sumo history and really got us well informed to enjoy the sumo wrestling matches once they started. I would highly recommend going this route if you want to catch a sumo game.
Just loved it, our guide was very helpful and gave us a lot of useful information . I highly recommend it!
Wonderful afternoon watching sumo wrestling! Our guide was very helpful, I highly recommend this tour!
Sumo tournament is an extremely unique sport and something worth seeing if you have the chance. Great way to gain access to the Sumo tournament which is hard to get tickets. Gives you an option to hangout with other English speakers in Japan from all around the world.
A great experience
The tour was excellent, the guide very helpful and the seats good. All in all, a very worthwhile tour. The dinner was fine, for a group experience.
We were lucky enough to be in Tokyo during the May sumo tournament and this was by far the highlight of our trip!! Our Tour guide, Miki, was extremely knowledgable about Sumo, the tournament, and the wrestlers. She explained the rules and how the tournament works. She walked us through the Sumo history museum and showed us the prizes. She even made us a cheat sheet for all the wrestlers so we understood the odds per match! We had a great time and I would highly recommend this tour!
If you can do only one thing in Tokyo... This is it.
Excellent tour, well worth the money. Our guide helped us understand the culture of Sumo and helped follow the action during the matches. The atmosphere in the stadium was electrical! I recommend this for anyone who wants to see a piece of Japan culture that you will not see anywhere.
Great experience very much enhanced by the guides explanations and knowledge. Loved the time we spent.
