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) 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.
