Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    At the Tokyo sumo stable, or a nearby train station, meet up with your guide in the early morning and get ready for a peek into an exclusive world.

    Watch a live practice session. Seated on the floor, get close to the sumo wrestlers as they conduct their morning training routine and practice their techniques. Perhaps even get your photo taken with some of the sumo wrestlers after practice is finished: A truly special souvenir of a morning to remember.

    Please note, starting and ending times vary.

    I can’t tell because the event got cancelled two times by beauty of Japan. It’s a pity because I was looking forward to this and then of course disappointed.

    Excellent morning - watching these massive guys go through their routine and the slam the hell out of each other. Very memorable experience. The two hour session flew by despite having to sit cross legged.

    I went with some visitors and it was a great experience - you so up close and personal to the wrestlers. Would definitely recommend! Directions to the event were very clear and it was very easy to find. I will definitely do again with other visitors!
