Meeting place perfect only a short walk to Sumo stable info from guide was informative and the question and answer period was fun. Pictures are okay to take but be respectful and follow directions from guide during training. Group pic was fuzzy but was able to take individual photos so no worries. Would do again!!! It was intense watching but good intense. Thanks so much.
