In Sumo competition not always the bigger wins, technique and ability are necessary to defeat an adversary who often has the strength and the weight of several ordinary man and even move fast as a cat at times.

 Starting early in the morning, wearing barely nothing even during the Japanese freezing winter, sumo training keeps the path of "budo" martial arts and ancient traditional Japanese customs. The Shinto religion is deeply rooted and the members of the sumo stable "sumo-beya" not only compete but eat and live together in a strict hierarchy of rules displayed also in the training.

    Watching the Sumo practice so close was an amazing experience! My guide Akiko answered all my questions and even took me for a tour at the Sumo museum. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to understand more about this Japanese sport.
    Akiko, thanks for your time, you were very helpful!

    My family and I went to sumo stable last week, their morning training was breath taking.
    Their size might scared you but actually they are too friendly. I enjoyed watching their practice and we took lot of pictures. And I would love to see their tournament as well.

    I would highly recommend this tour to gain an insight into this part of Japanese culture. It was truly a pleasure to watch. My guide Mr Yamamoto was informative and tremendously knowledgeable. I am most glad I went on this tour.
