Watch real sumo morning training with locals
Learning about Sumo and seeing Sumo-wrestlers in action is certainly one of the best cultural experiences you can have in Japan. You can well watch a match in the sumo tournament but it’s not easy to get a seat close to the sumo ring. So if what you’re craving is watching the Japan's national sport up close and personal, let’s pay a visit to a sumo stable and contemplate their morning training session, known as asageiko. The training can start from 8.00 am and a local guide, who know thoroughly about Sumo, will be there for you to give local insights. You’ll then probably get amazed to view the strongest guys practice, see how really big they are and how lively the sport is! Depending on the condition of the wrestlers, you can also have a chance to take photos or talk with them after the session but this is not guaranteed.
