Sumo Super Event with a mini Chanko Lunch - April 16th (Mon)


True Japan Tour offers the Special Sumo Tournament Watch opportunity for our valued guests on 16th April 2018.

Let's experience the world of Sumo on this special day, at Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. Yasukuni Shrine is known as a Shinto shrine, established for commemorate Japan’s war dead. The Dedicatory Sumo Tournament was started in 1869, as to commemorate the people’s soul rest in the shrine, and the tournament is still in practice.

On the day, you will have a chance to see approximately 200 Sumo wrestlers gather there to dedicate Sumo to the shrine, from the lower ranked one to Yokozuna (the top ranked wrestler of the National Sumo Tournament). There will be some special traditional ceremony held, which is rare to see. You will learn the ancient tradition and impressive matches of sumo. Furthermore, during the event, the wrestlers will entertain you such as by showing their techniques including prohibited ones in humorous ways. Additionally, there will be a chance to try mini Chanko Nabe hot pot, known as Sumo wrestler’s hot pot dish.
