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.

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 and some ticket types on weekdays.

**Service charge includes our fee (1,200 yen for weekdays, 3,000 yen for weekends) plus credit card / Paypal payment fees. The payment fees are a percentage of ticket cost, so higher-cost tickets have a slightly higher service charge.
