Watch Sumo Demonstration
We'll meet at 11:40 am at the Genghis Khan Yukidaruma Ryogoku, where we'll attend a sumo wrestlers' training while we explain all about this typical Japanese combat.
Sumo is the national sport of Japan, and it involves numerous traditional rituals both before and after the wrestling itself. Learn about the history, movements, training and tournament and add a unique experience to your trip to Japan.
You'll learn about the strict routine that the wrestlers must stick to, and get to understand the practices to follow during the training sessions. For example, you must remain seated during the practice session as a sign of respect and admiration.
Attending a sumo training session is the perfect opportunity to learn about the rituals and costumes of Japan's national sport and to admire the daily sacrifices of those who practice it.
After attending the training, we'll head to the restaurant attached to the centre to enjoy an authentic Chanko Nabe lunch. This typical sumo wrestler's meal consists of a hearty stew including rice, meat or fish, potatoes and vegetables.
We will conclude the experience at the restaurant, where the meal will end at 14:00.
