This Sumo practice was a highlight of our Tokyo trip. You have to see it to believe it. We have nothing like it in the US. These guys were very serious and focused.

A unique experience to watch Sumo up close. You really don't know how big these guys are until you see them at practice. They make me look small. You will get a different outlook on Sumo after going to this tour.

Mr. Kota, the tour guide is very very helpful. Originally my reservation is for 4 people and I keep adding more to end up with 11 people. It was very enjoyable experience. Something that not a lot of people do in Japan but we can say that we saw a Sumo Morning Practice plus we were able to watch the opening ceremony of the Sumo Event. Thank you so much. Highly recommended.

It's a great cultural experience to watch sumo practice! Our guide Kota-san is awesome! He, as a sumo fan himself, provided a lot of interesting insights about this unique traditional national sport!

Amazing experience.
Our guide Mr Kuta was great, very helpful, interesting and was obviously passionate about Sumo wrestling himself.

Great way to see Sumo wrestlers in action if you are unable to take in a Sumo Wrestling Contest! Close to the respectful Sumo practice it was a full two hours of 1:1 wrestling practice well enjoyed. Photo op at the finish to take away memories.
