See the sumo world with your own eyes as you experience a close-up view of sumo training!

Sumo, Japan's national sport, is a competitive full-contact wrestling sport where a wrestler attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring or into touching the ground with anything other than the soles of his feet. The sport originated in Japan, the only country where it is practiced professionally.

The Grand Sumo Tournament runs just six times a year, but you may see sumo wrestlers in action by watching them up-close-and-personal at their morning training sessions.

With an expert guide, be escorted to the sumo stable and learn about the history and how it's entwined with Japan's native Shinto religion. Discover an authentic piece of Japanese culture as you see these impressive athletes at their rigorous training.

Practice usually lasts for 2 to 2.5 hours, depending on the training schedule.
