Watch Sumo Demonstration

Sumo is the national sport of Japan, and it involves numerous traditional rituals both before and after the wrestling itself. Learn about the history, movements, training and tournament and add a unique experience to your trip to Japan.

You'll learn about the strict routine that the wrestlers must stick to, and get to understand the practices to follow during the training sessions. For example, you must remain seated during the practice session as a sign of respect and admiration.

The many different techniques of this ancient sport will be revealed to you as you attend this session; you'll observe how the youngest wrestlers prepare food for their elders, who follow a specific diet to gain weight.

Attending a sumo training session is the perfect opportunity to learn about the rituals and costumes of Japan's national sport and to admire the daily sacrifices of those who practice it. Then, after the performance, you can take pictures with the former wrestlers.
