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

我今天参观了相扑部屋^v^(相扑手们训练生活的地方)超级好看的!!练习赛开始的一刻,两个相扑手扑向对方碰撞的声音,真的会令人心跳加速,超级紧张,看得我都激动起来了。要说跟普通的相扑比赛有什么分别的话,就是能看到其他练习赛外的训练,师兄弟之间的交流,文化的深度体验。还有重点中的重点!!有相扑火锅食!!我食的是泡菜加味噌汤底,好食得不能用言语形容!!我旁边的外国游客还说他上了天国(笑)不过用餐的时候,相扑手们一直守在旁边跟我们聊天,可是不一起食,弄得我有点不好意思了。但是也因此知道了好多只看相扑比赛不能知道的背后故事,比如说在进入关取(相扑专业阶级)之前不能结婚。。。但是我再追问(其实是导游帮我翻译),交女友还是可以的(笑)成为出式的相扑手之前还真是有血有泪。总括而言,是一次非常棒的体验>v<

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.
