You can learn more on Wikipedia and YouTube. Small room with a few old drawings and tournament rankings. Oh and the highlight, a TV playing some Sumo bouts. Little teaching about the sport or its history

This might be the smallest museum I've ever been to. Most of the explanations are in Japanese and you need to know a bit about Sumo traditions before going to the museum. They play some recent(ish) video of championship sumo matches on a TV in the one room museum.

Good to stop in if you're close, but probably not worth treking out to if that's the only thing you're interested in.

It is free and you can just walk right in no reservation or ticket required.

Part of the Kokugikan. Very small museum with interesting prints, photos and other historical artefacts. No photos. Only worth going if you are in the area.

This is a free museum you can visit during the off season for sumo which is based in the stadium grounds. There are some life size sumo cut outs which you can take photos with outside and a small shrine.

Inside is fairly small, only 1 room with some basic information and sumo artefacts and a photo wall of past champions (I think).

There is also a shop round the corner with sumo merchandise.

This is a good taster for all things Sumo. There are fun cutout Sumo shapes you can get your photo taken with outside the museum. The museum itself is free to enter and you can not take photos inside. It is a small museum and takes only about 20mins to see. There is a good Sumo souvenir shop next door. Great for gifts to take home.
