This walking tour will take you on a journey through the world of Sumo, the wrestling competition that has been practiced for more than 1500 years!

It is a world-renowned contest of strength, and its culture is deeply rooted in Japanese history. It is a great experience that you wouldn’t want to miss! You'll visit the Ryogoku Kokugikan (the venue where sumo wrestlers practice) and the Sumo Museum to learn about the development of sumo. You'll also be taken to a restaurant to taste chanko nabe- a traditional hot pot for sumo wrestlers.
