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.
Our guide for the day, Honda, was funny, informative and really helped us understand about the history and the context of each bout so we could really get into it and enjoy it fully. Thank you!
Really enjoyed our Sumo tour the guide was fantastic and very knowledgable.
Awesome experience. Really interesting. Our guide provided a fact sheet that he had made which was really helpful. Will defiantly go again with this company.
Awesome to see! We had a really great time watching the sumos and our guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about it which added to the experience.
Terrific authentic Japanese experience. The guide was very informative and told us everything about the traditions and history of Sumo wrestling.
Good tour, good explanation of sumo, and easy to find collection point
We were very luck to be in Tokyo at tge time of sumo tournament
Our guide was very enthusiastic, and gave us a lot of interesting information
Hugely enjoyed my first experience of a sumo tournament.
The tour people were very well organised and herded us in small groups via 2 trains to the arena with great efficiency. Our guide was very experienced and knew the wrestlers well. Sumo is a great spectacle and I highly recommend it.
We had a fantastic time on this tour. Our guide, Take, gave a thorough explanation of all things sumo, and periodically explained what was going on during the tournament. He was also excellent at making sure our group stayed together, and that everyone knew how to get back to their hotels whether they chose the dinner option or not. The tournament was very entertaining to watch! The seats were a little high up, but I still managed to get some good pictures. Even people who aren't really into sports like me will enjoy this very much. The dinner afterwards was pretty good as well, and it's ready when you get to the restaurant. Overall, this was an unforgettable experience, and Take was very friendly, informative, and funny. This was a major highlight of our trip to Tokyo, and we will definitely recommend it to family and friends!
The Sumo Wrestling Tournament was so interesting and our guide taught us a lot about the rituals prior to the actual wrestling. Our guide also would let us know what exciting or unique warm up or signature move certain wrestlers are known for, which was nice to have our cameras ready. It would have been really great to arrive earlier so we could walk around and take pictures, get snacks and watch more matches, but overall this was an amazing experience. Loved it!!
