Step into the dohyo (sumo ring) and prepare to face off against a worthy opponent. 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. 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!
