*Hover over the seat types for information and photos. ‘B’ Boxes are in sizes for 1 or 4 people. Box ‘D’ are for 1 person, but can be bought next to each other for 2+ people. 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. 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. 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), except the final Friday of the tournament. 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.
|Family Ticket Type||Ticket Cost**
|Family Box 'B' (maximum 4 people)||25,800 yen||1,200 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 may 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.
**July 18th (Monday) is a national holiday and is a weekend date.
(except final weekend)
|All ticket types except:
Family Ticket on final Friday
4-person Box 'B'
|4-person Box 'B'
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.
