If you have the chance to visit a tournament, do not hesitate. I found out late about the tournament so I had to book through a special site. I used buysumotickets and the service was correct. The tickets were at the reception of my hotel...More

I wish I could have visited Japan during a grand tournament- but alas it didn’t work out. This is right next to the Edo Museum, so it is worth going into the Sumo Museum if you’re in the area. It’s REALLY small- but free! I...More

Incredible experience that gives you an authentic insight into traditional Japanese culture. There were two of us and I recommend splurging for a floor box for four. The boxes are small on the small side for non-Japanese and it would a pity to miss the...More

We go tickets in advance to the May tournament through bridge.jpn (they also booked bentos for us). We spent almost five hours watching as the spectacle was great and increasingly exciting as the hours passed, and by the time the last match started you could...More

Especially when the champs come into the ring at around 1530 in the afternoon for the final 2 hours of matches. The rituals, the excitement, the old-fashioned way of advertising, and of course the matches. The wrestlers are unexpectedly fast for such "big" men. The...More

Great experience if you are lucky enough to be there during a tournament. Easy transport access, food is typical overpriced stadium food. Good fun, you wont regret it. They even give out radios with English commentary so you can understand what is happening.

If you are visiting Tokyo during the Sumo Tournament season, it’s worth getting yourself a ticket. It was a fun experience and the stadium was easy to access from the station. Do some research before you go on Sumo wrestling as it helps to know...More

We bought tickets through viator for the 14th day just before the final. The guide was very helpful and it was good to get the English version of each bout’s detail( players names and standings). The experience is very unique and enjoyable. The sumo wrestlers...More

This is a very large arena, but there is not a bad seat. Visibility is excellent from all four corners. The ceremony, pageantry and the entire show deserve your whole afternoon. While we knew little about Sumo before going, our friends patiently explained the process...More

It's taken my fifth trip to Japan but this time I finally made it to a sumo tournament and it was magnificent. Firstly, the arena itself was simply stunning. But the entire experience was awe-inspiring! From the ceremonies, to the bouts themselves - o the...More

As far as I know there is only one Sumo stadium, so check with your hotel to see when the tournament is being held.

I am not aware of any. We booked through the official website and set a calendar reminder for the day the tickets went on sale.
