    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!

    Watch Sumo Wrestlers during their Morning Practice in Osaka

    Watch Sumo Wrestlers during their Morning Practice in Osaka I was met promptly on time by my guide Tokie. Communications throughout were good and had no problems. Her English was good and the information provided was interesting.

    There were only 2 people observing the wrestling and we had front row seats about 3 metres from he ring. We had proper seats so no need to kneel on the floor. I was able to film the proceedings and take as many shots with my SLR as I wanted. The clicking of the shutter didn't seem to be an issue so I was able to capture some action shots. I can strongly recommend this experience. The only possible negative was that the team we viewed was one of the more minor teams so no famous Yokozuna etc. Also the room was cold and you will be sitting still for over an hour so dress warmly and bring a blanket for your legs if this is going to be an issue for you.

    Watch Sumo Wrestlers during their Morning Practice in Osaka

    Watch Sumo Wrestlers during their Morning Practice in Osaka When our host took us to an industrial neighborhood in Osaka early in the morning and led us to a corrugated steel building with forklifts and machinery around it, I thought it was going to be a disaster. But in this unlikely setting, which we would never have found on our own, a mud wrestling ring had been constructed in the middle of the floor and we watched about 20 of these guys for 2 hours of training at EXTREMELY close range (10 feet)! FABULOUS!!!
