Sumo and Sightseeing, by Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo

  • Immerse yourself in the best of Japanese entertainment, culture and food during this full-day insider tour through Tokyo together with Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo.

    Discover the secrets of sumo with private entrance into a “stable" where wrestlers eat, sleep and train. With special access arranged by Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, observe the rituals and traditions of the sport during a morning practice session. Afterwards, in a dining room inside the stable, enjoy an authentic chanko nabe (hot pot) breakfast alongside the athletes.

    After your keiko (training), unwind with a private experience at a sento, a Japanese-style bath. Next, embark on a Tokyo sightseeing tour to explore quaint Yanaka, the oldest, most traditional area of the city. Break for a Wagyu steak lunch at one of the longest-standing Japanese restaurants, Asakusa Imahan. Then it’s time to shop for authentic Japanese housewares in Kappabashi, Tokyo’s kitchenware capital, where hundreds of specialty stores offer Japanese kitchen tools and utensils. There, you can buy plastic “sushi," traditional cast iron pans, or an engraved Japanese knife you’ll use for years to come.

    In the evening, board a private yakatabune (traditional houseboat) for a cruise through the illuminated Tokyo Bay and a meal of tempura and sashimi. Afterward, you’ll return to the hotel in a rickshaw.
