“ Sumo morning practice - fun and interesting! ”

Kaoruko picked us up at our rented house. We experienced morning traffic on the trains, packed as sardines we arrived to Ryogoku. We visited one of the sumo stables and attended a morning practice. It was very interesting and fun. After the practice we where going to visit the sumo museum but sadly it was closed. We went to Asakusa instead and Kaoruko followed us there and helped us to find out where we could buy a karate suit for our son, much appreciated! We really recommend this tour if you are curious about the sumo culture!

Kaoruko:

Thank you for your nice review. I forgot to look for two plants names that we found at the little gardent park next your rented house. One pink flower tree which looks like plum flower is a Japanese quince or Bokeh flower, Boke in Japanese. The other white flower is Mitsumata, means three-pronged fork. Mitsumata is used as a material for making traditional hand-made Japanese paper or Japanese paper and is known as a material for Japanese bank note. I hope that you enjoyed visiting the other part of Japan other than Tokyo too!

“ Great morning watching Sumo ”

Kaoruko organized our visit to a sumo stable, where we were able to watch practice for about 2.5 hours. Kaoruko was very flexible with our schedule and understanding when I was confused about the address of our hotel. She was also very kind, and easy to talk to. Thank you Kaoruko for organizing this trip for us.

Kaoruko:

Thank you for your review, I practiced "Honanya!" to my former boss! Thank you! Kaoruko

“ Visited Sumo Practice ”

I was able to get in touch with Kaoruko and arranged watching Sumo Practice in the morning. She met us at the Ryokan we were staying at and showed us through the stations to get the practice. Normally she would take us to the Sumo museum afterwards, but due to a tournament taking place during the same time, the museum wasn't available. She offered to take us to Old Tokyo, which we agreed to but didn't know what we were in for. While I appreciated going out to check out the location and see the sights, I wasn't briefed on how far it was away from central Tokyo, nor was I really prepared for a museum on a Japanese actor/movie series that I wasn't even aware of. I was told it was a beloved series in Japan, but it was lost on me because I've never heard of it before we walked in to it. All o... read more

Kaoruko:

I regretted guiding you there. I thought that you might like old Tokyo simply because that you stayed Ryokan. Actually I guided three groups there in the past and they all liked the place. So it has a good reputation. Thank you anyway for your comment and best regards to your mother. Kaoruko

“ Summo practice ”

Kaoruko was very professional and explained us the world of Summo. Very good English and lots of empathy made Kaoruko a very good and enjoyable guide.

Kaoruko:

Thank you very much for this nice review. I wished that I could communicate with you in Portuguese even in some words! Anyways, I hope you will have a wonderful trip in Japan! Best regards, Kaoruko

“ The sumo practice was a highlight of our trip ”

We learned a lot about the sumo wrestling sport, and about its history on the sumo early morning practice and sumo museum tour. Kaoruko was on time, and she was very informative. She was very nice and made our time together a pleasant experience.

Kaoruko:

Thank you for this nice review. I'm glad to know that you liked the tour. I enjoyed guiding you too. I hope that you will have a nice time and good experience while you travel in Japan! Thank you again and best regards, Kaoruko
