This experience was absolutely top notch in every way, from organization, to the sumo practice watching itself, to the amazing meal that was served after! I actually didn't know a meal would be served and we would eat sumo food (chanko) and talk to the wrestlers. It was one of the coolest and most interesting things I've done in Japan and can't thank Japan Wonder travel enough! Great job guys and THANK YOU!

This tour was excellent and exceptional! I haven't expected I could have a chance to have chanko hot-pot on the sacred sumo ring. Wrestlers served the chanko to us and we could have chance to talk with them! That chanko made my mouth water. Don't miss such an amasing tour of Japan Wonder Tour.

it was an excellent tour to a Japan-specific place! You expect to visit a place like this if you are in Japan. And guys made it as perfect as possible, thank you!

It was a surprisingly interesting tour. Thank you for inviting us to a real sumo. It was nice to see this ring in the Ukrainian show (the show was released a week ago). I really liked sumo and recommend everyone to visit

Excellent tour!!! We loved it and felt very honored to be there. It was really special to us and we will always remember our trip to Japan!

I've been to Sumo Wrestling Championships in the past and they're already great - but THIS was over imagination! It was an exclusive experience where you can actually see the big sumo wrestlers training right in front of you, like just 2 meters away! If you're looking for a very special experience in Japan, if you like sumo, and especially if you think you know sumo, this is your tour - because you would see you didn't know it this close before this experience!

The tour was amazing. I am living in Japan for more than 30 years, but it was first chance to have this experience. The training was so hard and worth to keep watching for an hour, the food was nice, but the best part was to have a chat and take some photos with the wrestlers. They were so friendly and gave us sumo match simulations. My friends and I absolutely recommend it to both Japanese and non-Japanese.
