Overview
Visit a sumo training center in Tokyo to observe the morning practice. Spend approximately two hours watching the sumo wrestlers train and observe the rules and regulations of sumo. It’s a rare chance for visitors to glimpse this exclusive world, and a fascinating window into a Japanese tradition.
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.

A unique experience.

Our first time in Japan and being able to watch Sumo’s training was a unique and highly recommended experience. Be prepared to sit quietly for up to 2 hours - so get a spot with some wall support for the back.
