    Brother Will do again.

    This is a must do! A little hard to find the restaurant but it is worth the trip. The Sumo Wrestlers were amazing to watch and talk to. the food was great. I would do this again just to watch my brother put down.

    Awesome experience!

    It was an unusual experience. We all enjoyed our time with Sumo Wrestlers. They were funny and entertaining. The Chanko Nabe does not look good on the picture but it actually taste so good. The best show we ever had in Japan. Highly recommended to everyone visiting Tokyo.

    Amazing!

    I had the best time here.. It was such a fun experience and worth the trip! The sumos were very friendly and showed us some cool demos about the sport itself.. I have a huge respect for these guys they are big and so strong I wouldn't wana get in a real fighting match with them hahaha We got to wrestle with them which was hilarious. Lots of laughs and the boys had lunch with us and answered our many questions. If you're heading to Tokyo or in the area and interested I highly recommend going here 👍🏼 oh and the meal was delicious too 😋😋😋

    FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!

    This was the best and the most memorable experience I have had during my visit to Japan. I would like to thank the host and the sumo wrestlers for their hospitality and friendliness. I wanted to meet the sumo wrestlers ever since I was a kid, and this event was truly a dream come true. I got to wrestle with them and interact with them closely. The sumo wrestlers as well as the host were very polite and friendly. The host educated us about the history of sumo and Japanese culture. Furthermore, they were kind enough to arrange a vegetarian meal for me as I am a strict vegetarian. In conclusion, I would highly recommend this event to sumo lovers and as well people keen on knowing more about Japanese culture. Thanks again for this wonderful experience! :)

    Fantastic fun

    It was a great experience to learn about sumo. Emcee was excellent and so was the sumo demonstration. They were so humble and friendly. The food "chanko" was unexpectedly good. Highly recommended for families and couples. Go with your friends too, you'll have fun. It was fantastic, my husband said it was the best fun he's had of our trip so far. Thank you very much!

    My little sumo with the real sumo

    It was a must do tour if u r in Tokyo. Personalized attention to every guest is what I appreciated.

    Great and informative way to have a sumo experience if you cannot get to a sumo stable nor see them wrestle in a tournament.

    We found that this activity was a great way to have a sumo experience since we were unable to attend a practice session at a sumo stable nor a sumo match during their tournament. The explanation about the history of sumo, the practice routine, the different wrestling techniques were done well. The hosts were very friendly.

    Chanko nabe was nice. However, I wish the hosts would explain to us more about the ingredients inside the chanko nabe and why it has become every sumo's main diet.
