We were fortunate to be in Japan during the Tokyo Sumo Tournament in May. Although this review is a few months late, it was a great experience. The meeting area at the bus terminal was very organized, and we were met by our guide, Ako. She provided us with an excellent overview of the sport, and distributed useful information. She accompanied us to the sumo stadium on the train, and throughout the matches, she answered any questions that arose. She went above and beyond to ensure that everyone enjoyed themselves. After the matches were done, she walked us to the restaurant where we had an authentic chanko nabe meal, and ensured that we knew how to return to our hotel on the train. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
Awesome experience would definitely do it again, the translator was a little difficult to understand. But overall 5/5
We were lucky that this Sumo tournament was happening during our vacation to Japan. We jumped at the opportunity and were not disappointed at all! Booking through Viator made this super easy otherwise I heard getting tickets to this is super hard even for Japanese residents. Since we had never seen Sumo it was nice that before the show Sumo was explained and during the show we were handed a quick guide about the different Sumo wrestlers. I 100% recommend this to everyone!
Any seat in the arena is good. Very enjoyable to watch competitors in action. Most matches last less than 30 seconds. Would go again. Highly recommended.
This was a fantastic experience and made better by having a guide explain everything to us. We learnt about the history of the Sumo, how the matches work, how much the Sumo's earn through sponsors and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of the stadium. Highly recommended.
