Want to see a Sumo wrestling fight during your visit to Japan? Here is what you need to know.
First of all, tickets for Sumo tournaments tend to sell out very quickly. If you know how and where to purchase tickets, you still have a chance to visit the fights, though.
Every year, there are six professional “Grand tournaments” (15 days each) organized by the Japan Sumo Association (Nihon Sumo Kyokai). If you want to see the real deal, these events are the most recommendable.
