Au programme

Meet at Tokyo Skytree and walk under the world's tallest self-standing broadcasting tower. You will be overwhelmed by its massive and gigantic tower constructed with the image of a Japanese sword.

Then, we visit a sumo stable to watch an early morning practice of "rikishi," professional sumo wrestlers. They live in the world of very strict sumo hierarchy. They are so serious to become stronger because the rank of the Grand Sumo Tournament directly affects their incomes. They know only the practice can make it possible.

The morning practice starts before 7:00 a.m. with stretching, warming-up, and a routine of basic movements. We usually get into the stable around 8:00 a.m. when they start "Butsukari-geiko." The practice gets harder and harder as time passes by. You will be moved by watching dirty and sweaty serious-looking rikishi hit their bodies each other again and again. By that time, some of you may realize the very nice aroma around you. It is not a perfume of a lady but a smell of sweating Rikishi. Do you want to know where the nice smell comes from? The hint is Rikishi's topknots. Only those who attend there can experience the smell.
We may have a chance to take photos with them around 10:00 after the practice. Then, they finally can have their first meal of the day, "Chanko" the famous sumo nutritious dish.

I am a national government licensed tour guide specializing in the Shitamachi area, the east side of central Tokyo. This area is filled with the traditional Japanese culture of commoners in the old Tokyo.

Sumo, the time-honored traditional Japanese martial art with 1500 years of history now became quite popular internationally. Many foreign-born professional sumo wrestlers called "Rikishi" have reached champions at Grand Sumo Tournament. Koto-ohshu, the first Sumo champion originated in Europe, is one of them. He was born in Bulgaria and I had lived there for four years when he was a child. I have been his fan for many years and am glad to know that he recently opened his own Sumo stable near my office.

He says he wants to make sumo a popular world sport. I will be very glad if I can help my guests have a chance to know about sumo.

Le lieu

Recently, many sumo stables are closing the doors to morning practice tours because of foreign tourists' bad manners. I guess, it is because the foreign tourists don't know what the sumo is. So, I hope they can learn what sumo means to the Japanese people properly through my sumo tour.

Sumo is a very interesting traditional Japanese martial art that you can't miss during your stay in Japan!

I've wanted to visit a beya for months, but even as a sumo fan near Tokyo, it felt intimidating to try to do on my own. I was happy to find this experience available. After attending, I am even more happy. Yoko made everything so easy, there was not a thing we had to worry about besides showing up. In addition, she provided us with packets of information about sumo and the particular training stable before we entered. Being directly in the beya so close to the action of practice, and getting to see the ins and outs of rikishi's training, was worth every penny of this tour. Yoko also so kindly secured a chanko nabe lunch reservation for my group, and escorted us to the restaurant where she had a lunch set already ordered for us (food cost separate from experience), which helped us be able to adhere to our time restraints. I would recommend this tour to everyone from the casual visitor who wants a sumo experience but can't or doesn't have time to go to the tournament, or the sumo fan who has seen basho and wants to get a deeper appreciation for the sport.

It was a unique opportunity to watch sumo wrestlers doing their daily practice. We visited Japan during an even month so would not have been able to buy tickets to a tournament. Yoko was very knowledgeable and provided detailed information on the religious nature of sumo, the stable, and each wrestler so I felt a more personal connection watching. It was truly an amazing experience!

In the two and a half months I’ve been living in Tokyo so far, this has been my greatest experience. It was incredibly authentic and unique. It really surpassed my expectations in that it was not touristy or contrived at all. We met at about 7.30 am at Oshiage station and then walked for five minutes over to the sumo stable. We were inside and sat down by about 7.45/8. Yoko got us there earlier than the other guests which meant we were able to sit right at the very front (there were two of us on Yoko’s tour and about 8 others who I assume were with another guide. You are just a couple feet away from the sumo wrestlers as they are completing their morning practise. We watched for probably around 90 minutes to 2 hours while they completed their morning routines. After the morning practise, Yoko made a restaurant reservation for me for a nearby Chanko restaurant. Chanko is the traditional sumo meal. If you like hotpot, you will like chanko. It tastes really healthy and filling. It seems a lot healthier and lighter than ramen. I have three groups of people visiting me in Tokyo this year and I will absolutely recommend this to them. If you do decide to go, please be quiet and observe the rules of the stable. It is really a great privilege to be able to see and I hope that other tour groups are also respectful to preserve the ability of people to be invited into the stables. Do not be worried about bringing young kids, so long as they are well behaved. There was a boy who must have been about 8 years old who was clearly really enjoying it. He was quiet and respectful so it was not an issue. Final pointer, if you struggle to sit cross legged for long periods, maybe have a quick stretch before you go in! Otherwise there is a bench at the back (you will still be able to see perfectly)

We had a very pleasant and interesting morning guided by Yoko watching the Sumo training. It was a unique experience for our family and I would recommend it to everyone wishing to gain insight into the revered art of Japanese sumo. My son was very impressed with the dedication and grit shown by the aspiring sumo wrestlers, some of which were not much older than him! Yoko also provided a lot of fascinating background information on the wrestlers and the history of this sumo stable.

The practice was neat to watch. 2 hours at the practice might have been just a tad long, would have been fine with an hour to 1.5 of watching practice. It was neat to learn about and see some of the traditions around the event. Definitely recommend seeing. We got to see Tochinoshin Tsuyoshi, if you watch on Youtube, he was one of the top ranked Sumo Wrestlers in the world.

    Since the early morning practice is not a show for the tourists but the serious daily practice for Sumo wrestlers. There might be sudden schedule changes/cancellations due to the condition of sumo wrestlers/sumo events. In that case I will let you know ASAP for alternatives or you will be refunded.
