Tips: How to get sumo tickets

 Sumo is the one of the most unique sports originated in Japan and also super popular - tickets are really hard to get. Here are some tips for getting sumo tickets.

1. Get as soon as they get available

Usually the most possible way is to get them as soon as it's available. You can see the schedule below - and can try to get as soon as possible!
See Sumo Tournament schedule in 2022.
January tournament @ Ryogoku Kokugikan From 1/9 (Sun) to 1/23 (Sun)March tournament @ EDION Arena Osaka (Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium) From 3/13 (Sun) to 3/27 (Sun)May tournament     @Ryogoku KokugikanFrom 5/8 (Sun) to 5/22 (Sun)July tournament     @Dolphin's Arena (Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium)From 7/10 (Sun) to 7/24 (Sun)September tournament    @Ryogoku KokugikanFrom 9/11 (Sun) to 9/25 (Sun)November tournament  @Fukuoka International CenterFrom 11/13 (Sun) to 11/27 (Sun)

2. Ask for a travel agency to book

Some tour companies may have tickets with guide. You can book way earlier than general onsale (i.e. 6 months before), but ticketing price would be higher as they are sold as a package tour with guide. Still, it is the easiest way to secure tickets. Check the link below. (Link temporary suspended because of COVID)

3. Go to the venue early morning at the event day

Usually for Tokyo sumo tournament,  limited numbers of tickets are sold at the venue for the day.  Tickets type will be most back of the venue but still cheapest tickets you will ever get, too. Price is 2,200 JPY(around 20 USD)! They start selling at 7:45 am and very likely to be sold out soon, so be sure to go as early as possible, if you prefer this option!

4. Try Sumo Japan tour - Jungyo

Sometimes they also tour all Japan (called Jungyo) that includes near Tokyo, such  as Yokohama and Saitama - also the tickets are easier to get and cheaper.  If you get the chance to stay Japan during this time, you are lucky! 

5. The alternative way is to watch Sumo practice

If none of them work for you, the alternative is to watch them practice. Local guide will make sure to have a space for you and the date is quite available as Sumo wrestlers practice everyday! The good point is that this is the option you can pick anytime, even when a sumo tournament is not held in Tokyo! Check out the link below!
