What to Expect
Pick up two to three spots from below list in either side of the city. If one each from the east and west side are chosen, your time loss will be 30 to 40 min..
When either Tsukiji fish market or Sumo morning training session is selected, add one spot from the east dide spot.
In Tsukiji, I will take you into the inner market, where the professional buyers go. You will see ongoing lively business scenes there.
At Sumo training stable, feel the wrestlers' heartbeat, body temp and breath in hard training. You can take photos and chat with them after their training.

This is a time saver's tour in Tokyo. Tsukiji and Sumo can not be selected in one day due to time constrain.
Tsukiji fish inner market is not the tuna auction, and is closed on Sundays, Wednesdays and holidays.
Sumo training stable visit depends on their availability. Minimum 4 day prior notice is required. Also, patronage finance of 3000jpy per PERSON is asked by the training house, paying to me in cash before going into to the house..
Oyakata, the head of the traning house has been elected to be the Chareman of Sumo Association, recently. So the training of the house got even harder.
