Fancy a chance to watch some of the “biggest” athletes in Japan work hard in training?

Starting early in the morning, wearing barely nothing-  even during the Japanese winter-  sumo training adheres to the path of “budo” martial arts and ancient traditional Japanese customs. Deeply rooted in Japan’s native religion – Shinto – members of the sumo stable “sumo-beya” not only compete but eat and live together in a strict hierarchy of rules  – which is also on display during training.

Join Japan Holidays in watching sumo morning training in Tokyo, Osaka or Nagoya. Your guide will introduce you to the rules for watching the live sumo practice ( including total silence!)
