      When you need to say sorry in Japanese in a formal way, is Sumimasen appropriate?

      Sumimasen is not very formal way to say sorry in Japanese.
      You should rather say like the followings:

      1. Moushiwake-gozaimasen-deshita
      申し訳ございませんでした。
      もうしわけございませんでした。

      2. Owabi-moushiagemasu
      お詫び申し上げます。
      おわびもうしあげます。

      In these ways, it sounds more polite.
