Sumo is a traditional Japanese sport based on Shinto belief. It’s like “Japanese wrestling” where one tries to force their opponent out of the ring or force any part of his body to touch the ground. Sumo wrestlers train very hard from early in the morning. You can go visit a Sumo stable and watch the training up close (as long as you follow the rules of the stable.) You will see the strongest guys practice!!

The Sumo tour was excellent. Very up close and personal. The tour guide also spoke about some of the other attractions we past on the way to the stables, which was really good. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for the authentic Japan.
