Great fun, educational, interesting. Two former wrestlers demonstrate typical techniques and allow visitors to challenge them, all with good humor. Definitely worth taking kids. The premises get very crowded if they're fully booked so get there early. The lunch was disappointing, to be honest: just...More

This was every thing it should be. Retired sumo wrestlers give you a light-hearted, entertaining demonstration of Sumo and show you some moves and techniques. Then you get to put on a Sumo suit and challenge them, even the kids did it and it was...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
