Get up close and personal with professional sumo wrestlers at their stable, the place where they live and train. After taking in a morning practice at the stable of a former champion, you’ll have the chance to step into the ring yourself for a mock bout before sitting down with the wrestlers for a breakfast of chanko nabe hot pot, a sumo staple.

Geisha Night
