*Hover over the seat types for information and photos. Box ‘C’ and ‘D’ are for 1 person, but can be bought next to each other for 2 or more people. 3-person Box ‘B’ and Twin Box are the size of a 4-person Box, but sold only for 3 or 2 people, so you get more space. You can’t buy just part of a Box. Arena seats are for 1 person. 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.
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), except the final Friday of the tournament. 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.
|Family Ticket Type||Ticket Cost**
|Family Box 'B' (seats 4)||6,500 yen||1,200 yen||7,700 yen|
**Ticket cost represents the price we pay for the ticket, plus a small mark-up (about 4%) to cover Paypal fees.
Accepted Order Types
Below is a list of order types we accept. Other types sell out immediately, so we don’t take orders for them. Please understand that even if a ticket type is in this list, it might not be available. Weekends and holidays sell out extremely quickly. We strongly recommend that you plan at least one weekday when you can go to sumo and use this as one of your date choices. We limit the number of orders we take for weekends.

The exchange rates in the calculator below are approximate only. The actual rate will be determined by Paypal on the date you make payment.
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 1,800 yen weekend surcharge.
*National holidays are also considered weekend dates.
