Sumo in Tokyo attracts many international visitors, seeking the thrill of watching the wrestlers do battle in their sacred ring. However, tournaments are held just six times a year and in different cities. You might watch their morning practice instead, but this is not year-round either, and may not include any bouts. So, why not visit Yokozuna Tonkatsu Dosukoi Tanaka, the show restaurant operated by a retired sumo wrestler!? Here, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable interactive show — entirely in English — with former professionals, while eating the famous chanko nabe stew, the source of their power! Book your seats for this very special performance on the east side of Tokyo for the rare chance to try your luck and strength against a real sumo wrestler. Learn about their traditional techniques, see exhibition matches, and eat a delicious sumo lunch! The sumo souvenirs on offer, and a photo op with the wrestlers, complete the experience to form unforgettable memories of your visit.
