    Learn the Mysteries of Sumo from an Expert

    Learn the Mysteries of Sumo from an Expert Verena, the host, was truly amazing! Really friendly, helpful, reliable and knowledgeable. A true expert. Easy and excellent to communicate with. If you would like to learn about sumo, she is indeed the person to get in touch with. She helped out in many different ways and arranged activities that went far beyond the lecture. It all depends on what you are after. She certainly helped me in a fantastic way. With her unique contacts within the sumo world, she will probably be able to help you out with pretty much anything in relation to sumo. I had a fabulous experience meeting, working with and learning from Verena. The lecture itself was very informative and interesting and presented in relaxed and fun way. I give Verena my very, very best recommendations!

    Watch Morning Sumo Training at Sumo Stable in Tokyo!

    Watch Morning Sumo Training at Sumo Stable in Tokyo! I did not meet Ace personally but I attended the Sumo wrestling Match and it is worth an experience when you do get a time to watch it live in season. starts from 8:00am until 18:00PM, I traveled solo and was fine with having to find the station and find my seat.
    The Voyagin Team staff are very good with communication and was able to send it to my hotel upon arrival. Do highly recommend this experience. I did not have time to go to Sumo training stable as I was not in Tokyo at that time. Thank you Voyagin Team

    Watch Morning Sumo Training at Sumo Stable in Tokyo!

    Watch Morning Sumo Training at Sumo Stable in Tokyo! I don't understand sumo wrestling, but since I couldn't get to a match while I was in town (it was the off season), seeing a couple of hours of sparring practice was definitely the next best thing. Sumo wrestling is a fascinating sport to watch, I can only imagine how great it would be to see how a match plays out, or have the storylines of the players explained to me. I was met at a nearby station by Ace and his girlfriend, who were friendly and answered most of my questions. This was a great insight into a lesser known part of Japanese culture, and could only be topped by seeing a full match!

    Learn the Mysteries of Sumo from an Expert

    Learn the Mysteries of Sumo from an Expert Verena is like a walking library when it comes to Sumo, her true passion. When we both studied in Tokyo, I had the big pleasure to join an important Sumo Tournament with her. It was fantastic to have my private annotator next to me. Verena introduced me into the world of Sumo with all its special rules, history and present situation. She knew about all the wrestlers, techniques, rituals and made this tournament a very special experience to me. Back in Germany I had the chance to learn even more about Sumo when I was listening to a speech of Verena about the world of Sumo at University. Everybody was impressed with the consolidated knowledge.
