Hi everyone! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
On May 10th and 18th, we held SUMO WATCHING TOUR!
This tour is one of the most popular hostel events.
Sumo Grand Tournament is held only 6 times a year, and only 3 of them (January, May, September) are in Tokyo.
So the guests who joined this tour are very lucky!!
We've been holding Sumo Tour for years, and this time, we took WATER BUS from Asakusa to Ryogoku for the first time.
It was very convenient as it arrives right by the sumo arena!
After arriving at the arena, we tasted CHANKO NABE hot pot, which is the typical meal for sumo wrestlers.
It was so yummy!!
We're so happy that everyone seemed to enjoy the matches and the atomosphere of the arena very much.
Thank you for joining our Sumo Watching Tour!
Next Grand Tournament will be held in Nagoya in July, and they'll be back in Tokyo for the next tournament in September.
We'll hold the tour again then, so we look forward to having you next time!
