This is a special tour where an ex-sumo wrestler will guide you through two historical towns – Ryogoku, sumo town, and Asakusa, a popular sightseeing spot. Experience this rare and unique walking tour that not many people have the chance to experience!
Sample tour route: – Ryogoku kokugikan (stadium where sumo tournament is held)
Ryogoku is known for sumo town and there are sumo wrestlers walking in town with yukata wearing. Sumo tournaments are held 6 times a year and the tournament is held at Ryogoku kokugikan in January, May, and September.
You will have a chance to see sumo wrestlers in Ryougoku if you are lucky, but when it comes to actually speaking and touching sumo wrestlers, this program is the only one.
Asakusa (浅草) is the center of Tokyo’s shitamachi (literally “downtown”), one of Tokyo’s districts, where an atmosphere of the Tokyo of past decades survives.
Asakusa’s main attraction is Sensoji, a very popular Buddhist temple, built in the 7th century. The temple is approached via the Nakamise, a shopping street that has been providing temple visitors with a variety of traditional, local snacks and tourist souvenirs for centuries.
