INTERACT AND HAVE LUNCH WITH SUMO WRESTLERS AT A SUMO STABLE

While closed off to the regular public, we have obtained access and would like to invite you to visit the training room of Japan's popular sumo wrestlers.

Sumo, the traditional Japanese national sport, has been depicted in the Record of Ancient Matters (Japan's oldest historical record) and Nihon-shoki (the oldest chronicles of Japan). A festival ritual, according to historical periods of time, it was also used as a contest of strength, and through 1500 years, it has deeply rooted itself within Japanese culture. Since the Edo period, Sumo has, along with Kabuki, experienced widespread popularity as a source of entertainment. Besides the intensity of the fight, the bright colors of the ornamental sumo apron and solemn entrance procession of sumo wrestlers entering the ring give off a mysterious yet attractive aura.

About the experience

In order to present the backstage of the sumo wrestling world and the impact and overflowing intensity of sumo wrestling practices, we have prepared a private sumo stable visit tour.

By observing the sumo master participating in serious sumo wrestling practices in preparation for the official sumo tournament, you can behold the resolve and way of life of those who have been handed down the responsibility of continuing the national sport of sumo.

As part of the trip, you will be able to take part in the sumo wrestlers' daily life by having lunch with them. Please enjoy authentic Chanko nabe (traditional stew for sumo wrestlers) prepared by the sumo wrestlers themselves. Eating at the same table, you will have plenty of chances to ask the wrestlers questions and converse with them. Chanko nabe is the energy source of sumo wrestling, and provides the nutrients needed for bodybuilding. It is one of the must-haves during one's visit to a sumo stable.
