Good communication and friendly staff at Japan Wonder Travel. Collected the Sumo tournament tickets from their office. Everything was smooth and hassle free. Recommended! :D

Fantastic service. The tickets were waiting for us at our hotel on arrival. The package included an English guide and arena map and useful info about Sumo. We had a great day out watching the tournament and would use Japan Wonder Travels services again when were next in Japan.

The sumo tournament that we saw was very entertaining and a truly great experience for us as foreigners. The ordering of the tickets via the JapanWonderTravel site was easy and we received confirmation very quickly. The staff offered to send our tickets to our hotel, which was very convenient for us. It’s a totally worth it experience and a good value for money.

What an experience, THANK YOU SO MUCH! Japan World Travel is such a great company to work with, I recommend them 10/10. At first I was a little skeptical about paying for the tickets without confirmation that the tickets were available but I decided to take the risk because it was my first time coming to Japan and it just so happened the tournament was happening while I was in town. Tickets were sold out everywhere online so I took the leap of faith purchasing with Japan World Travel. The were very prompt with communication and had my tickets delivered to my hotel before I checked in. The whole experience was amazing and I’m so happy I got to see my first sumo competition. Thank you so so much!

By the time we wanted to buy sumo tickets online it was sold out via the official website. Thankfully we found japanwondertravel! Our 6 tickets was delivered to the hotel and I receive it upon checkin with the sumo schedule. Effortless and easy to get tickets and what an experience sumo was! We were all in awe after our first sumo experience! Love it! Thanks!

Perfect preparation, perfect tour guide Mari with deep knowledge of Sumo, the ceremonies, traditions and background. Very interesting, had a great time, what a pity that program closes at 18:00.
by Stephan (01/25/19)
Absolutely fantastic service. I was very sceptical at first, since the tickets had sold out weeks in advance but since it was our first time to Japan, we took the risk and book these with Japan Wonder Travel. When we arrive to the hotel, the tickets were waiting for us at reception. Strongly recommend this website for this service and the staff and communications were also great.

I had such a brilliant experience with these guys. They really helped me out a lot. We wanted to see the sumo tournament in Tokyo, which was luckily happening while we were there, and to our disappointment the only tickets left were very expensive. We shopped around and got into contact with Japan Wonder Travel and they had decent seat tickets left at a good price! They sent the tickets to our hotel for when we arrived and it all went smoothly. I would definitely use them again.

One of our main ambitions visiting Japan was to see a Sumo competition as it' such a large iconic part of japan's culture. It first appeared to be a daunting challenge as there were so many sites and options. I read some positive reviews of Japan wonder travel and chose to book a days ticket at the tournament. I was so happy in my decision. They were prompt with their communication and were a joy to deal with. I requested that the tickets were delivered to the hotel and they agreed. When I arrived at our hotel the tickets were already there. This made it so much easier when attending the stadium. I would happily recommend their services. I only wish that companies in the UK had the same attitude to service.

by Arosborough (09/14/18)
Great service. Good price and tickets delivered as promised. Thank you
by Kim (06/11/18)
Full marks to Company for providing EXACTLY what I requested. Tickets were delivered to our hotel before our arrival and collected at check-in. FIRST CLASS SERVICES ALL THE WAY. I highly recommend Company and will hopefully have an opportunity to enjoy Company experiences again. MANY THANKS TO YOUR WONDERFUL TEAM AND EFFICIENT EFFORTS IN MAKING OUR HOLIDAY SPECIAL.

Used the service to book tickets to the Sumo in May - really great - tickets arrived at the hotel in advance and really helpful staff answered questions before we arrived. Highly recommend. Danny (UK)

I bought tickets gorntje sumo match in May when everything was sold out on all other sites. I thought it was too good to be true when i came across this website and found tickets availablebat a relatively low price considering the match was the next day and it was completely sold out everywhere else. Was very pleasantly surprised with the outcome. It was a bit hard to find their offices at first because I needed to pick up the tickets but we’ll worth the find! We got our tickets and head over to the match and overall the experience was excellent and I would highly recommend.

Many thanks to Yuko and the team of Japan Wonder Travel for arranging on a very short notice (late evening before the tournament on the next day) tickets for Tokyo sumo tournament, when it was virtually impossible to get the tickets via any other sources. The communication was very prompt and professional, throughout the day and even during the late evening hours. I highly recommend this travel and tour agency. Thanks for your great support!Sumo tournament was also a great experience and not to be missed if you happen to be in Tokyo during this event.
by Aliona (06/08/18)
Great service! Everything worked as promised.
by Christian (06/08/18)
Fantastic service, prompt communications and most importantly our tickets were waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived
by Marky (06/08/18)
A great experience all round from the delivery of our Tournament Tickets to attending such an amazing event, would definitely do again and would recommend Japan Wonder Travel to anyone going to Japan.
by Bradk (06/07/18)
Usually i do not write rewievs but asked to do so by JWT I have to say it worked like a charm. I had my tickets at my hotel as I arrived. Straight instructions when and how. I don't know if it was the cheapest way but very convenient. F. 5 backpacks.
by NoNamae (06/06/18)
Many thanks to Yu-san and the team for getting the tickets for us despite the short notice. From communications thru email to delivering the tickets was smooth. They even put the tickets nicely in a folder with event information included. Great job!
by Isaac (05/17/18)
Wonderful event for a very affordable price! They went above and beyond to get the tickets to us on time, even though our housing changed last minute. Would use their services again!
by Danielle (05/19/17)
Easiest, cheapest, and best tickets for the sumo when it seemed all others were sold out! Thanks again for an amazing experience
by Tim (01/20/17)
Tried getting sumo tickets through every avenue I could and this was the only place that had them. Tickets were delivered to my hotel as promised with no issues. Thought it might be shady given there were no tickets available but they delivered. Would repeat.

I've been using Japan Wonder Travel services since few months already and I'm very satisfied. Recently I've purchased sumo ticktes and they were the only ones to offer them when almost everything was sold out. They also offer delivery even to private houses which was very handy for me.
