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.
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.
We were extremely lucky to be in Tokyo at the time of the Sumo Tournament in January 2017. We followed Emiko who told us about the traditional art of Sumo which has survived to this day, her English was perfect and the stories she told us about the celebrity wrestlers kept us entertained. She got us there with plenty of time to get comfortable and see all of the important bouts! We then enjoyed a traditional Japanese dinner complete with sake! Would definitely recommend this tour to people who haven't seen the amazing sport. Would love to return again some day to see the tournament again
Good experience. The tour guide was nice and very knowledgeable, sharing a lot of interesting facts about sumo. The seats weren't the best but it was decent. If you do wish to see the sumo wrestlers arriving around 1400 you have to get there earlier and meet up with the group at the arena. We arrived after 1500 and by then pretty much all the the wrestlers had already walked in. It was a fun time, I recommend this tour.
A wonderful tour guide and the amazing energy filled the stadium from all the Japanese people cheering for their number one fan. I loved every minute of it. A must do!!
Well organized, great tour guide and was great to avoid the crowds trying to get tickets.
I'd recommend they advise you it's SUPER helpful to rent the radio for the english play by play. I was the only one who got one and was giving people updates about who the athletes were and more of the details. Price was 3300 yen and then you get 3000 back after the event about 3 CDN
Very informative guide who even helped us get pictures with some of the sumo competitors. Well worth doing.
Our guide, Yukiko, was amazing and very enthusiastic about all things Sumo. Took the time to explain the history and traditions of Sumo, plus points of interest in each of the day's matches.
Chanko dinner was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. A real highlight of our trip.
Well organised. Wonderfully knowledgeable guide and very accommodating to the large groups needs. One of the best experiences ive had in Tokyo! Thank you so much Viator!!!
It was great fun and out tour guide was most helpful in explaining the Sumo traditions. I would highly recommend the experience.
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
