At the Tokyo sumo stable, or a nearby train station, meet up with your guide in the early morning and get ready for a peek into an exclusive world.
Watch a live practice session. Seated on the floor, get close to the sumo wrestlers as they conduct their morning training routine and practice their techniques. Perhaps even get your photo taken with some of the sumo wrestlers after practice is finished: A truly special souvenir of a morning to remember.
