Holding over 11,000 people, this experience, in partnership with TOKI, means that you’ll be able to take in a bout of wrestling in the company of a sumo sports journalist and announcer if you’re in Tokyo during one of the three most prestigious national tournaments held in this historic venue – where sumo has been held since 1909. Even if your visit to Tokyo is during the sumo off-season, you can still take part in a truly unique experience. Take a tour of the Ryogoku Kokugikan before heading to a pro wrestling stable where you can see wrestlers train and even join them for lunch.
