Description

Join this tour and stand on an actual Sumo Ring and face off with an ex-Sumo wrestler!

We offer you an exciting chance to interact with sumo wrestlers!!
You will be able to learn the basic rules and regulation and also the daily life of a Sumo wrestler and their struggle to reach the top.
This is a very rare opportunity that you don't want to miss.

Sumo is a national Japanese sport and part of traditional Japanese culture. It is believed that the origin lies in the mythical age. Sumo has been familiar with Japanese culture and the lives of many people. Sumo has many faces such as historical, cultural, Shinto ritual or athletic, and each of them has a particular feature.

What makes this experience is special is that anyone has the chance to stand on a real Sumo ring and face off with a Sumo wrestler! (The wrestler will ask for volunteers to stand on the stage to push them, please raise your hand then to be chosen!)
Also what makes this tour even more special is the fact that children and women are also allowed to stand on the ring and join the experience.
What this mean is…
In the Sumo world, women were never allowed on the Sumo ring, and this had been a huge topic in Japan. However with this tour anyone can stand on a real Sumo ring!

After the performance and your heroic act of wrestling with a Sumo wrestler you will be able to go to any of the 11 stores that are in the “Edo NOREN” area for lunch.

This was an amazing experience. An interesting insight to the world of Sumo, particularly when traveling in the Sumo off-season. The ex-pro wrestlers were engaging and funny and it was fun to be able to take a turn in the ring if you wanted and the photo opportunity at the end of the show. Good for all ages. Highly recommend!
