You can take a look in their training free of charge. But a reservation is needed. And although tournament is not held, there is a spring tour held in several prefectures in April. So if you want to visit sumo-beya around Tokyo, you should make sure of the date you may visit.
However, I don't know whether there are people who can speak English or not in sumo-beya. So when you make a reservation, maybe you need a person who can speak Japanease.
