Excursion: The Business of Sumo
Sumo was under fire in the media and investigated by the authorities. As one of the oldest tradition developed in its present form in the Edo period it continues to command respect in current Japan. Several hundred Sumo wrestlers all over Japan train and live in Sumo stables.
Tatsunami Stable has kindly agreed to bring us both — a glimpse of the Sumo training but also a discussion of the business environment of a Sumo stable.
Join this unique opportunity, visit a stable, have lunch with Sumo wrestlers and learn more about the business side.
Date/Time: June 8
