Full description
Watch a Sumo Tournament up close and personal, an event held only 6 times per year.

Sumo is a traditional Japanese sport based on Shinto beliefs. Similar to wrestling, the participants try to force their opponent out of the ring or to force any part of his body to touch the ground.

Sumo wrestlers live together, practice hard, and all strive to become the highest-ranked wrestler. They train diligently from early in the morning almost every day. Witness their hard work pay off in this exciting match.

With your ticket, you can enter and leave the tournament at any time. It's recommended to arrive for the 3:40 PM ceremony, so you don't miss seeing the "Strong" and "Strongest" wrestlers compete.
