We booked to view a morning sumo training with Beauty of Japan. We were given clear instructions on where and when to meet.

We arrived at the sumo stables with about another 20 or so people. No tour guide introduced himself or checked bookings. We just walked in with the rest of them. You could of been just walking past and walked on in without anyone knowing any different.

We took shoes off at the door and you sit down on a wooden floor with a cushion. If you can't sit cross legged I suggest you pick a spot with your back to the wall. With your back to the wall you will be able to sit on you knees and move around a bit and not block anyones view. Having the wall to your back is also great to lean on as we
were there for 2 1/2 hours. Being at the back though you might have 2 rows of people in front of you, we were lucky and had none.

The sumo stable was Oguruma beya. The junior sumo trained first and ended with the senior sumo and a warm down session.

Nothing was explained in the session. You sit their dead quiet and take photos with no flash or sound. At the end you get a photo with the sumo.

Apart from the lack of guidance it was an amazing experience with the sumo only being metres away from you doing their thing.

You can't visit Japan without watching the wonder of Sumo Wrestling!! I decided to stay around after the training session to speak with some of the athletes & even got lucky enough to wrestle 2 of them & learn first hand the technique & just how difficult this sport is!! It is pretty amazing to watch the training session & learn all about the sport (20,000 calorie diet definitely blew me away!).

While traveling to a foreign country you need to see a home town favorite. Disneysea was totally different then any other Disney Park that I’ve visited. Rides and shows were A+. Food quality great and visit ship and Roosevelt’s lounge. A can’t miss when in Tokyo.

Extremely disappointed with this very pricey private Manga/Anime tour.

Not only was the guide inexperienced in the area of manga/anime, she also seemed disinterested in the subject. Being able to speak English is not enough! I'm sure there are many passionate Manga/Anime people living in Tokyo.

My 10 year old son was super excited to experience Japanese manga/anime culture up close but by the end of the day we felt let down.

I expected we would travel in style, not in a humble Japanese taxi. And maybe be given bottles of water and some snacks for the $1300 price tag for two people.
We could have simply done the tour ourselves in a taxi!

PLUS we needed to pay extra to get into the attractions such as Jworld and Namjama town. Also at first she suggested I pay for her to get into Jworld!!! I refused, she said she would ask for a reimbursement from her company.

When we were running 5 minutes overtime at the end of the tour the guide became very moody and rude. However she initially took 15 minutes of our time to set up the agenda with the taxi driver at the beginning of the day.

Don't bother!!

Paid and recieved no tour despite calling and being promised tour details via email. Booked this tour, recieved online tickets and told details of tour including location and start time would be confirmed before tour. Rang the company the day before and after providing my booking and reference number (which did not feel me with confidenc) they asked for my email. Told me the details would be emailed that evening - recieved noting!! Did not want to stand on the side of a random road and hope for the best. I have requested a refund but at this have heard nothing. Do not bother wasting your time as this was a disappointment and a financial lost.

So easy to organise, the driver is early, ready and waiting for you at your hotel before 8:30, has a sign with your name on it. Once we arrived at Disneyland the driver even explained how to use our tickets he gave us and how to get home using the trains! Very helpful and so much fun.

I really couldn’t tell if this trip is worth going to because we were bluntly cancelled just 1 hour before starting time!
I made a reservation, paid, got a confirmation and then just before starting time (we were just about to leave the hotel), we got a phonecall that we were cancelled. Not because the trip was cancelled because something bad happened (Sumo wrestlers sick, earthquake or something else unexpected), but just because they OVERBOOKED the trip. And apparently they decided that our family couldn’t join. Since we are leaving Tokyo tomorrow there will be no chance for us to see sumo again which really spoils our day. This was to be our highlight! Still really mad that the organisation just refused us.
Not trustworthy

We arrived at 8am as requested, sat on floor for 30 mins while wrestlers went through a warm up routine. No English commentary or any commentary!! We had a photo with 2 of the wrestlers that came out to us & that was it!!! We were very disappointed with this, expecting more time (90 mins minimum as indicated). We feel very ripped off!

Watching the morning practice of SUMO is an activity that I definitely recommend. It is incredible the strength of these man! You get to be really close and are truly engaged in watching the training session.
However... where to start with beauty of Japan organisation? The organisation was a disaster.. starting by meeting point.
We received confirmation of the booking but on the day before the practice we still had not received information on where the practice was going to be. We only had a phone number to call (which would not work from our international phone). So we decided to find their offices on google and go there. We followed google and ended up in a corporate office that clearly was not Beauty of Japan. Luckily they were lovely people and with very little English were able to find them online, phone them up and take us to their office which was on a parallel street on the 5th floor. We get there and finally are given the meeting point (Tamanoi Stable)!
We thought ok, we got the address! Woop!Well.. when we got wi-fi at the hotel we were able to check where it actually was. It was 1h 10min away from roppongi-tokyo (where we were staying), the training was starting at 7.30am and the trip there costed ¥960 each (¥1920 for both of us). We woke up at 5.30am, no breakfast (hotel would not serve us that early) and head to the train journeys. We got there, it was in a very residential area and we get to the stable. Watching them was amazing but after 35min we see the wrestlers stretching and finalising the training session which we were told that would last 60-90min depending on how tired the wrestlers would be. We were told that it was shorter that usual due to the big tournament that was ongoing.
Needless to say it was badly organised by beauty of Japan and we received no compensation for all the hassle we went through, for the session being shorter than usual or for any additional costs.

This was a great way to watch sumo if you cant get tickets for one of the main events/are in Japan when they are not running or want to see how they train.

The stable we went to (Ikegami) is a little out of town but was easy to get to. Note that there is no explanation/translation given. You are there to sit and observe. The wrestlers blank you and get on with their training while you sit in silence watching them from the other half of the room. No drinking or eating is allowed and you sit on pillows on the floor. So make sure you have sorted yourself out before going in.

This was really interesting. The wrestlers initially warmed up and then spared in matches over and over again which was really great to watch before a cool down and stretch to finish. Some of the wrestlers were 'beasted' which was quite tough to watch but shows the work these guys put in. Our session was 2.5hours so be prepared. You can take photos during the training (no flash) and also have photos with the wrestlers after the session.
