Sumo Stable Tours

A sumo wrestler leads a highly regimented way of life. Every sumo wrestler belongs to a stable, which is where they live while they are young. A stable is managed by a stable master, a retired wrestler who was a good wrestler in his prime.

There are currently 54 stables. Referees, ushers, and hairdressers also live in the stables. The stable master is referred to as oyakata (boss), and his wife, who is called okamisan, also plays an important supporting role behind the scenes.

Sumo Stable Tours, are generally only available 1 or 2 weeks before or after
one of the six major Sumo Tournaments run throughout the year.
