Morning Sumo Practice
Sumo wrestlers are some of the kindest people in the world. That all changes during the morning practice where they show a different, fierce, side while clashing with each other to push the other out of the ring.
"Watching Sumo practice was such a wild emotional experience."
Two different types of packages will be offered with one plan allowing the guest to actually see the sumo tournament from seats more difficult to acquire than the president himself. Kataonami stable is the only guesthouse where you can experience mouth-watering food, comfortable beds, and most of all, a one-to-one interaction with professional sumo wrestlers.

About Kataonami Stable
Kataonami stable is currently being overseen by the 14th generation headmaster who reached the rank of sekiwake, the third best in all of sumo wrestling during his tenure, under the name Tama Kasuga. There are currently two professional sumo wrestlers in Kataonami stable which includes the high ranking Tama Washi, who won first place in a sumo tournament in 2019. All Kataonami stable professional sumo wrestlers have the 玉 character in front of their name in order to distinguish them from other sumo stables.
Sumo stable stay was started because the headmaster wants to open the door to the world of sumo to travelers from all over the world. He would like for guests to understand what makes Sumo the most respected, dangerous, and most watched sport in all of Japan.
