*Hover over the seat types for information and photos.  2-person Box ‘C’ are designed for 4 people, but sold only for 2 people, so you get more space. You can’t buy just part of a Box or Pair Seat.  Arena seats are for 1 person. Almost all Boxes in the building are for 4 people. Other sizes are rare and difficult to get, so please understand if they are not available. Please click here for a list of order types that we can accept.

**Ticket cost is the price we pay for the ticket, plus a small mark-up (about 4%) for Paypal fees.

Family/Senior Tickets

Information about Family/Senior Tickets:

1. A child is 15 years or younger, and a senior is 60 years or older, on the event date. A Family Ticket requires at least 2 people. If there is at least 1 child or 1 senior in the group, you qualify. Groups of all children do not qualify. You must buy all 4 tickets in the Box.

2. We will send you a voucher for your Family Ticket. This is not the entrance ticket! The voucher must be exchanged for your tickets between 9:00AM-5:00PM on the day of the event. The exchange is made at a tent-structure to the right of the main box office at the arena. You must have every member of your group present to get the tickets. If you arrive without any children/seniors, they may not give you your tickets.   They might ask for proof of age to get your tickets.  It is Japanese law that all foreign tourists must carry their passport with them at all times.

3. We accept Family Ticket orders for weekdays (Monday-Friday). They have very limited availability.   We will try to downgrade you to Arena ‘A’ if we can’t get the Family Ticket, unless you make other arrangements with us.

Sumo ticket sales on weekends* are extremely fast and tickets are difficult to get.  By raising the service charge on weekends, we hope to encourage you to choose a weekday as your first choice.

If you have a weekend as first choice, we strongly recommend a weekday as an alternate.  If we have to change your date from a weekend to a weekday, we will refund the 1,200 yen weekend surcharge.

*National holidays are also considered weekend dates.
