Watch Early Morning Sumo Training and Breakfast in Tokyo at a Sumo Stable ( Tour code # SMO001 )

Sumo wrestlers are the only ones who keep the traditional hair style for over 400 years! Being a national sport, Sumo is still very popular. It is not easy to watch the professional grand tournaments, because it is a seasonal sport and the seating is limited. This is a rare opportunity to watch their morning practice and have a traditional Sumo Chanco breakfast with the wrestlers after the training.


1. Exclusive breakfast at a sumo stable with sumo wrestlers
2. View sumo practice close-up
