Sumo Morning Training
You can see sumo wrestlers training early in the morning (7am to 9am) at a genuine sumo stable (at no charge). For visitors the experience can be quite exciting. Young wrestlers practice just as if they were participating in a formal match. There are many sumo stables near Ryougoku Station which is located only 20 minutes from Tokyo Station. However, only a few are open to the public. It is important to observe the action using proper manners. Not even whispering is allowed during practice. Closed: Saturdays , Sundays, National holidays and while wrestlers are on the road tour.
