Incredible opportunity to watch members of a Sumo Stable close up. We took our 12 and 14 year old to watch how intensive the training is. The flexibility and fitness required by Sumo for training is incredible. Highly recommended, if you are able to sit quietly for around two and a half hours.

This was an amazing event that worked beautifully to ready us for the match in the evening. Don't go to the Sumo match without seeing a practice. Wow!!! I'm providing a five star because the event itself was wonderful. However, our guide never spoke to us. We arrived early and a kind gentleman let us inside the stable. It was cold. No one ever assisted in any manner.

My husband and I attended this tour during our trip in Japan. Thoroughly enjoyed this intimate and close up experience of sumo wrestling which is so important in the Japanese culture. Worth every penny we paid for this and could not have asked for anything more.

Great. If you can’t make it to a match then this is well worth it. It’a much better than it looks!

Wasn't sure what to expect but this was one of our tour highlights. These athletes are amazing to watch up close, you'll have a new appreciation for their sport and their conditioning. We even got to meet a few of them in person afterwards and take some great pictures. A wonderful experience!

Astonishing insight into the hard work and training that the Sumo wrestlers go through to get to the elite. This made me flinch each time they crashed into each other, the force was so great and sitting so close you practically felt it!!!

It was a great experience to be able to watch the morning sumo practice. Our guide Kota was very friendly, helpful and spoke fluent English. Kota translated questions for the sumo wrestlers at the end of practice and organised for the group to have a photo taken with sumo wrestlers.

This was one of our favorite activities in Japan. Highly recommend. You will be sitting on the floor and it smells a little but it is worth it!

This is a cool experience to see how these wrestlers practise. However, you'd need to have patience as they do certain exercises for more than 20 mins. But it worthwhile in the end as they were doing wrestling practise to each other. Theyre quite serious about their practise and its not just a show. A trip that I highly recommended.

We learned a lot about the art of sumo wrestling in the short time of the tour. We were amazed at how close we sat to watch them practice. Our guide answered all our questions and was knowledgeable about the sport and lives of these wrestlers. Although these wrestlers are large, they are really athletes that are unbelievable flexible and strong. Amazing!
