Sumo is a traditional Japanese sport based on Shinto belief. It’s like a “Japanese wrestling” where one tries to force the opponent out of the ring or force any part of his body touching the ground. Sumo wrestlers train very hard from early time in the morning. You could go in a stable and watch the training close if you follow the rule of the stable. You will see the strongest guys!!

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.
