    Great experience- definitely recommended. The sumo’s were wonderful (informative and fun) and individual needs well catered for. Thanks!

    Definitely worth your money! Arrive 15 min early to get the best seats. You see a full demo by professionals (one of ours was ranked #4 in Japan!) and then everyone is allowed to try it themselves and take pictures. After, you’re served lunch and there’s time for Q&A. We’re glad we booked this!

    They were funny and we could ask them questions about their sumo career. The lunch was also good. Good time spent with these people

    Shima and Jambo made this whole experience a delight with their fun and interactive demonstration of the history and training/lifestyle of a Sumo wrestler. The lady who described and translated everything into English for us was very good at getting the information across.
    Recommended. I would go again.

    This is a wonderful experience! We attended the lunch event in Asakusa, and there were 48 people in attendance. It did not seem like that many at all. The hosts ran a seamless event, and there were so many smiling faces from everywhere! It started with a demonstration with 2 retired Sumo wrestlers, and an education on the history of Sumo/rules etc. Anyone who would like is able to wrestle after and everyone gets to enjoy pictures. All hosts and the wrestlers were super kind, ran an efficient event, and created a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere. The bento lunch and Chanko meal after was enjoyed even by my 12 year-old. There was a super informative Q&A during the meal. Who knew that Sumo wrestlers could eat 300 pieces of sushi in a given meal, while training?! If you have a few hours, this is an experience that is a total find for all ages!
