Sumo Experience

Sumo Experience

Step into the dohyo (sumo ring) and prepare to face off against a worthy opponent. Our hosts/hostesses will teach you the art, rules, and etiquette of sumo wrestling before you and your guests take your sumo skills to the garden dohyo and challenge your friends to a sumo suit battle! 

Real sumo matches will be played on our big screen if you need inspiration before your match! Experience the thrill and excitement of sumo wrestling at Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden with this private event, great for birthdays, family gatherings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, or staff retreats.
