Are there any rules about etiquette at the event?

On the day of the event

You will probably find that attending sumo is similar to attending a sporting event in your home country. However, there are 2 things that the Sumo Association wants our customers to know. First, please do not walk to your seat or get up during a match. Matches usually last less than 1 minute and start every few minutes, so please wait until between matches to move to and from your seat. Second, if you ordered a lunch set, please do not ask about those at the ticket gate. We have instructions above this question about where to get them, but if you still need help, please ask the ushers inside the venue.
