Attractions of the sumo stable tour  

Sumo stables are mainly dotted along Sumida Ward, Tokyo where Sumo's Holy Land, the Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Arena, is located. Morning practice, where wrestlers sweat profusely, is packed with highlights that are different from a regular sumo tournament.

 

The houses and groups to which the sumo wrestlers belong are called sumo stables. Every sumo wrestler belongs to these sumo stables.At stables, you can watch their morning practice even on days that regular sumo tournaments are not held. (January, May, and September in Tokyo, March in Osaka, July in Aichi, and November in Fukuoka)

It is a fascinating experience to watch trained bodies collide with one another live, experience splashing sweat and intense breathing, and witness the wrestlers be scolded by their strict masters up close.  

Morning practice at a stable is the only place you can experience the charms of sumo that cannot be transmitted through television, such as the harsh atmosphere that stretches across the whole stable and the imposing tradition, sumo rings where the wrestlers practice, and the scent of the hair oil from the wrestlers' topknots.

After you've enjoyed watching the morning practice to your satisfaction, you may be able to take pictures with the sumo wrestlers after their practice, depending on the stable.

It also depends on the class of wrestlers, but if you bring in an autograph card or notebook, you may be able to get their autographs in addition to photos.

If you like visiting from outside the window, you can observe the morning practice of Arashio Sumo room.

There is a large window in the rehearsal area, and you can freely observe every morning practice (around 6:30 am to around 10:00 am) from outside the window Sometimes wrestlers come themselves out of the window during training, and they will respond to the photography together.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum opened its doors in March 1993 as a space to reflect on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo and envision the city and life of the future.

Housed in a unique building modeled after an elevated-floor type warehouse, the museum has been a landmark and popular tourist attraction in Tokyo since its opening.

The permanent exhibition, showcasing original objects and replicas, offers visitors a journey through the 400-year history of Edo-Tokyo since Tokugawa Ieyasu entered Edo.

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum holds special exhibitions at the first floor gallery five to six times a year and carries out various other events, including lectures and workshops on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo.

We hope that the museum can be Tokyo’s center for the creation of new culture and a place of respite for visitors.
