1. Watch the early morning practice of sumo wrestlers in a sumo stable. See the sumo wrestlers as they earnestly engage in their practice, their burly frames clashing with full impact, right before your eyes. Enjoy watching close enough to hear their breathing.
This tour is accompanied by a National Government Licensed English Guide Interpreter who is also a sumo fan.
2. Enjoy chanko hot pot for lunch! Chanko hot pot is a very healthy dish of simmered vegetables, chicken, and seafood often traditionally eaten by wrestlers living in a sumo stable.
3. Feel free to take pictures of the sumo wrestlers while early-morning practice is ongoing.
(Please make sure to follow some important points. For more details, please check Remarks No. 5.)
4. The tour will also visit the Sumo Museum, which is inside Ryogoku Kokugikan. On days when the tour cannot visit the Sumo Museum (during tournament periods or when the Sumo Museum is closed), the tour will be guided to Ryogoku Edo Noren, a shopping and restaurant complex with a full-size sumo ring.
