*Hover over the seat types for information and photos. 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.
**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.
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 and some ticket types on weekdays.
*January 13th (Monday) is a national holiday and is a weekend date.
|All ticket types
except Box 'B' on final Friday
Lunch/souvenir set ticket is exchanged when you enter the venue. Use the smaller door to the left of the main entrance after you enter the ticket gate. There is usually a purple banner hanging over it. There are lots of stalls inside. Go to stall #1. Ask the ushers inside the venue for help if you require it. Do not ask the staff at the ticket gate.

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.
