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 or sukiyaki dinner for a true taste of the sumo wrestler lifestyle.
We really enjoyed this half day tour. We were unable to get tickets to the tournament at short notice so this tour gave us entry to the second last afternoon of the tournament. Having a Japanese, English speaking guide made it far more enjoyable and informative than if we had gone alone.
If you are looking for a fun and exciting way to experience Japans culture and rich heritage I would definitely recommend going to see Sumo Wrestling. We had a fantastic time ... even my Japanese sister in-law who had never seen Sumo had a blast. She has since booked a seasons pass for herself and her husband. Do yourself a favour and GO!
We had a great time on our tour to the Grand Sumo Tournament in Tokyo in January, we had a lovely guide and very happy with our experience, love Japan
Great day out to see a more traditional side of Japan. We had a very enthusiastic guide who gave a really good and interesting insight to Sumo. For anyone thinking of going on this tour it is definitely worth doing.
All aspects of the tour were excellent.
The meeting arrangements were good, travel to the arena was simple and our guide Miki was excellent. She did a great job of explaining the rules and the traditions associated with Sumo and showed a real passion for the activity. I would recommend this tour if you are lucky enough to be in Tokyo during one of the Sumo tournaments.
Best experience I have ever had! Our guide was highly passionate about sumo wrestling and wrote a brief description of all the wrestlers we saw that day, explained all the rules very clearly and helpful about where to go for souvenirs, food, drinks! Seriously a MUST when you visit Tokyo! We did have the dinner included which was nice but could have done without it but overall one amazing experience!!!
Guide was really well prepared and knowledgable which really helped us understand the sumo action.
Good guide. Made the night far more interesting and enjoyable.
Highly recommended, Tour Guide extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
A real treat to see the tournament live. It made watching it on tv for the balance of the week far more interesting.
