Introduction

This is a very rare opportunity you wouldn't want to miss out.

 

Sumo is a national Japanese sport and part of traditional Japanese culture. It is believed that its' origin lies in the mythical age. Sumo has been deeply rooted within Japanese culture and the lives of many people. There are many aspects to Sumo such as historical, cultural, Shinto ritual or athletic, and each of them has their own unique feature.

 

What makes this experience special is that anyone has the chance to stand in a real Sumo ring and face off with a Sumo wrestler! (The wrestler will ask for volunteers to step onto the stage to try to push them, please raise your hand if you wish 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?
In the Sumo world, women were never allowed on the Sumo ring, and this had been a huge topic in Japan. However with this tour anyone can stand on a real Sumo ring!
