Visit Sumo stable!

Experience Japanese tradition
We found a great tour that you can visit sumo stable and see morning training close up.
Sumo is Japan’s national sport. Its tournament runs in 15 days every time and it is held 6 times in a year (total 90 days). Sumo’s rank is consisting with 6 different rank, starting from the highest Makuuchi(幕内), Juryo (十両), Makushita (幕下), Sandanme (三段目), Jonidan (序二段), Jonokuchi (序の口). And in addition, Makuuchi is consisting with top of all rank Yokoduna (横綱), Ozeki (大関), Sekiwake (関脇), Komusubi (小結) and Maegashira (前頭). Currently Hakuhou 白鵬 (Mongolia), Harumafuji 日馬富士 (Mongolia), Kakuryu 鶴竜 (Mongolia) and Kisenosato 稀勢の里 (Japan) reign as yokozuna in the sumo wrestling world. Not only Japanese wrestlers but also many foreign wrestlers have training very hard every day to become Yokozuna.
 Practice to be Yokozuna

On a website “Voyagin” that commoners organize tours and recruit participants, this sumo tour is introduced for foreign tourists. Because sumo is very serious competition, so there are some rules and manners to join. But this is extremely valuable opportunity that even Japanese cannot experience easily. Tour time range is 7:30 – 9:30 am normally and the venues need to be confirmed every time as it depends on wrestler’s schedule. Mostly it’s Kanto area or Osaka.
