*Hover over the seat types for information and photos.  Ringside seats have rules; i) No children under 6 years old, ii) No cameras, iii) No food/drink. ‘A’ Boxes are in sizes for 3 or 4 people. ‘B’ Boxes are in sizes for 2 or 4 people. ‘C’ Boxes are in sizes for 2, 3 or 4 people.  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. The ticket cost does not change with the number of people, but we charge our service charge for each person.

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.

3. We accept Family Ticket orders for weekdays (Monday-Friday). They have very limited availability. Please consider which ticket type you’d like if we can’t get one for you, and tell us your alternates when you contact us.

Sumo ticket sales have been getting faster and faster, and now all weekend* dates sell out in 5 minutes or less.  Because of this, more people come to us to pre-order weekend tickets.  Every tournament we get more and more orders for the weekends, but fewer and fewer tickets are available.  We have been very successful, but this trend is not sustainable for much longer.  By increasing the service charge on weekend tickets only, we hope to encourage you to choose a weekday as your first date choice.  We thank you for your understanding, and we regret that it became necessary.

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 500 yen weekend surcharge.
