Sumo wrestling is an ancient Japanese Shinto ritual where a Rikishi (sumo wrestler) wrestles on a Dohyo (sumo ring). Dohyos are usually considered sacred and ordinarily are off-limits to people other than rikishi.
RAIEN has made it possible for EVERYONE to join this rare and unique experience. RAIEN provides this special Sumo experience lessons for foreign tourists and  for foreigners living in Japan.

Currently, the service is stopped to prevent COVID-19. The time for reunion is undecided. We pray for a quick recovery even one day.
