This was the highlight of our trip to Japan, such an amazing experience that I recommend to anyone visiting Tokyo! We were able to see so many matches in the training session and even see a couple of professional sumo wrestlers train! We loved getting an insight to Japanese traditions and our tour guide Kota gave us a good background into the rules of the sport so we could understand the training better. We also were able to met a couple of the sumo wrestlers after the training and get photos with them. We loved it!

Such a great experience, definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We and #39;d heard that watching the training was even better than watching a tournament because there isn and #39;t waiting around between matches, and it did not disappoint! Highly recommend this tour.

A must when in Tokyo, being able to watch a Sumo morning practice is a look into another world. Possibly better than competitions, because you get a look into their daily life, training regimen, and tutoring by their coach. Highly recommended.

This was amazing. I and #39;ve read a lot of people complaining. Sitting inside with the sumo was very up close and personal and great to spend time and appreciate the art.

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.
