Wrestle with a Sumo Wrestler on Real Sumo Ring in Ryogoku

2018.08.24

Introduction

Join this tour and stand on an actual Sumo Ring and face off with an ex-Sumo wrestler!

We offer you an exciting chance to interact with sumo wrestlers!!
You will be able to learn the basic rules and regulation and also the daily life of a Sumo wrestler and their struggle to reach the top.
This is a very rare opportunity that you don't wan't to miss out.

Sumo is a national Japanese sport and part of traditional Japanese culture. It is believed that the origin lies in the mythical age. Sumo has been familiar with Japanese culture and the lives of many people. Sumo has many faces such as historical, cultural, Shinto ritual or athletic, and each of them has a particular feature.

What makes this experience is special is that anyone has the chance to stand on a real Sumo ring and face off with a Sumo wrestler! (The wrestler will ask for volunteers to stand on the stage to push them, please raise your hand then to be chosen!)
Also what makes this tour even more special is the fact that children and women are also allowed to stand on the ring and join the experience.
What does this mean?
