I truly agree with a previous reviewer that noted that it's a privilege. It really IS a true privilege to get a glimpse of the daily training routine of the sumo wrestlers. I was in Tokyo outside the tournament season, and did not book a...More

If you can't go to a tournament or get inside a stable, this is awesome!! Off the beaten path, our hotel helped give us directions. Must refrain from talking, eating/drinking and using flash photography. Be respectful.

The viewing area is outside so you can only see thru the window, still if you are short on time and can't get a ticket to the sumo games, it is a nice way to see them practice.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

On their website it says 'most days'. We went on a Sunday I think. There are some weeks of the year they don't train.
