Full description
Step into the ring with real sumo wrestlers and choose from various lunch options. Former professional wrestlers will discuss the long tradition of sumo and show off some basic moves. Then it’s time to step into the ring to practice and take photos with the pros. On Mondays, this activity will take place in Asakusa, on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Ryogoku. The lunch on Mondays and Thursdays will be a Chanko HotPot, prepared by the wrestlers themselves. This is a traditional dish, that is supposed to give a lot of stamina.

On Tuesdays, after the demonstration, choose from sushi, sashimi, tempura, okonomiyaki and other traditional Japanese favorites at one of 11 restaurants in Ryogoku Edo Noren, an attraction in historic Ryogoku Station that recreates the traditional atmosphere of an Edo-era shopping street. Simply take a coupon from your guide after the sumo demonstration and head off on your own to your chosen eatery, or opt for a small gift if you’re not hungry.
