Sumo Wrestling Morning Practice Watch in Osaka [February / March] (SWA014)
Sumo is a contact sport. Sumo wrestlers weighing over 100kg (220 lb) practice with all their strength. Such being the case, sumo wrestlers preparing for the official sumo tournaments are practicing in earnest. Even a short unguarded moment or a small mistake may sometimes lead to an injury. Consequently, a sumo practice watch tour is permitted only to those who realize and follow the sumo tradition and manners. Our officially certified guide comes to meet you at your hotel and gives you basic guidance on how to properly watch a sumo practice at a sumo stable. Many sumo stables are not taking foreign visitors now, but we will do our utmost effort to find such stables that accept a sumo practice watch.
