sumo in nagoya

I will be in Kyoto during part of the sumo tournament in Nagoya.

I am unable to order tickets through their website, as they only deliver within Japan.

There is a sumo tour with Sunrise Tours, which is 9,800 Yen including only a ticket in an A box, and a short subway fare. Its more than I wanted to spend.

Does anyone know of another tour or possibility of getting tickets,

or, should I risk it and try for general admission tickets when I arrive in Nagoya that afternoon? Could they be sold out by then?

I would be really disappointed if I didn't get to experience a sumo match while I am in Japan.

Are you sure it's a seat in an A box? If so, the tour is a bargain. A seat in an A box costs more than 10,000 yen.

You should be able to get a ticket in the afternoon of the same day if you don't care where to sit, and if it's not the first day or the last day of the tournament.
