EXPAT EXPO TOKYO 2020 Special Offer
November: "All about Sumo"
Date: Sunday, Nov. 15
Hello, I am Yoko. I am a certified tour guide at STP Shitamachi t Pro.
I offer history and culture related tours in the Shitamachi area of Edo Tokyo. The Shitamachi is an area located on the east side of Imperial Palace (formerly Edo Castle) in central Tokyo.
I love sumo, the traditional Japanese martial art with a history of over 1500 years. Sumo may be filled with mysterious things such as the atmosphere of sumo stadium, elevated sumo ring, wrestlers' top knot hairstyles, barely clothed wrestlers, and Shintoism rituals.
This "All about Sumo" tour is aimed at those who want to explore sumo-related spots in Ryogoku.
I was very interested and happy to discover Sumo culture, which is a part of Japanese history.
The guide Yoko was perfect during this tour! She is lovely and she speaks English well! It was a great experience that I recommend.
Thank you again for the tour. (Myriam)
