The power, speed and intensity exhibited by these athletes was awe-inspiring. This is a must-see experience for anyone interested in sports and culture.
It may seem pricey for a 2 hour activity that doesn't include transportation to and from the site, but it was worth the money and our time. You can see a practice for free if you contact the sumo stable and wait in line early in the day, but it was worth paying the money to secure a spot without waiting in line. Its also hard to contact the sumo stables if you don't speak Japanese.
We watched the sumo wrestlers warm up and practice for 2 hours. Even though there were no verbal explanations during the practice, you can experience the intensity of the sport and understand how the sport works. We also got to take pictures with the wrestlers after the practice was over. And we were able to ask the tour guides questions in English at the end of practice.
Very very interesting to watch! Definitely recommend it!
Very interesting experience. Well worthwhile.
This tour was amazing!
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!
