Excursion TOK5 - 4.5 Hours - £165pp
Sumo or sumo wrestling is a competitive full-contact wrestling sport where a rikishi attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring or into touching the ground with anything other than the soles of his feet.
Perhaps the best way to appreciate sumo besides attending a tournament is to visit a sumo stable to witness a morning practice session. Sumo stables are where the wrestlers live and train together and where all aspects of life, from sleeping and eating to training and free time, are strictly regimented by the stable master.
This tour will give you a rare insight into this century old sport and allow you to witness first-hand the discipline and regimented life of a sumo wrestler.
