Go behind the scenes to meet some of Japan’s most famous athletes and observe one of the country’s most celebrated traditions with an early morning visit to Tokyo’s Sumo stables, where Sumo wrestlers live, sleep, eat, and train. We can make special arrangements for you to gain insider access and spend a morning with these giants, who sometimes weigh over 500 lbs and consume up to 20,000 calories a day! You’ll be guided by an established expert in the sport who may even be a former wrestler and who will share valuable insights as you watch the wrestlers in their morning practice.

The Legacy Untold’s founder Mark Lakin has been Travel + Leisure’s A-List Top Travel Advisor for Japan since 2017.
