Sumo Food Chanko Nabe in Ryogoku: Founded by a Sumo Wrestler [LOCAL SELECT]

Japan’s national sport, SUMO. Here, in the home of sumo in Tokyo, Ryogoku, we can find the source of the Sumo Wrestlers’ power – CHANKO NABE. This hearty soup packed with pounds of chicken, tofu and veggies, 15 ingredients in all, lets Japan’s fighters pack on the pounds in muscle, not fat.

Founded by a real sumo wrestler legend, Heikichi Ouchi, after retiring from the ring, Ouchi Chanko Nabe carries on his namesake and legacy.

Although sumo is an individual sport, a stable of sumo wrestlers sitting around eating Chanko Nabe can bond as a family over this beautiful broth. If you’re looking for things to do in Tokyo, or things to do in Ryogoku, Ouchi is the perfect pick for your visit. How about sharing a pot with your own family and friends during your sumo outing and seeing for yourself?
