We are welcoming everyone to watch our morning practice called keiko (or asa-geiko). During the keiko, rikishis (sumo wrestlers) exert themselves to the limit according to traditional practice way, and you would have so impressive impact from the solemnness.
No reservations are needed, however an actual holding schedule of a keiko will be decided just one day before, because it depends on our rikishis' condition. If you would like to find out if practice will take place, please make a phone call between 4 and 8 pm on the previous day when you plan to visit us (We could not answer any Email inquiry about the finalised schedule).
In watching our training, please be in compliance with the following rules:
* When you take photos for commercial purposes, you must be permitted by Nihon Sumo Kyokai who controles every sumo wrestler's right of portrait; TEL +81-(0)3-3623-5111.
** The place of keiko is not so large as for many visitors. Only few people could watch it from the roadside through large windows [PHOTO]. However, more than about 12 people would not be here together, because the road width is narrow [PHOTO] and some large trucks are going through.
*** We could not offer Chanko (traditional daily dishes for Rikishi) for any visitors. You could enjoy it at some restaurants around Ryogoku.
If you have any questions, please e-mail us to firstname.lastname@example.org (A reply may take a few days).
We are looking forward to seeing you here soon.
