Tokyo Sumo Museum

Museums Ryogoku

Time Out says

The Tokyo Sumo Museum has been in its current location for a quarter of a century, though the exhibitions it houses dates back several hundred years. Expect to see costumes, amulets, trophies, score cards and plenty of other things bound to delight fans of the world's most famous sport for obese people. Possibly of more interest are the sumo stables littered throughout the local neighbourhood, which hold daily training sessions from daybreak to around 11am, which passersby are able to observe - a genuine chance to get up close and personal with one of the aforementioned obese people.



Address: Ryogoku Kokugikan, Yokoami, Sumida

Transport: The museum is located to the right of the Ryogoku Kokugikan lobby
