We attended day 12 of the January 2018 event. Sumo really is a sight to behold, the whole experience is great from a sporting and cultural view. You can really feel the tension between the competitors, and the crowd are amazing. You will definitely need...More

Tickets go on sale a month before the big tournament and sell out quickly. But if you want a glimpse of Japan's National Sport, don't miss an opportunity to see a Basho. The tournament runs 15 days and starts as early as 8:30 to 10:00...More
