Currency Selector

You can use this menu to change the currency of the prices. This is an approximation only. We always make our prices in Japanese yen and the exchange rate will be determined by Paypal or your credit card company on the date of payment.

Tickets

Please understand that even if a ticket type is in this list, it might not be available. Weekends and holidays sell out extremely quickly. We strongly recommend that you plan at least one weekday when you can go to sumo and use this as one of your date choices. We limit the number of orders we take for weekends and some ticket types on weekdays.

Service charge includes our fee (1,200 yen) plus Paypal payment fees. The payment fees are a percentage of ticket cost, so higher-cost tickets have a slightly higher service charge.

How to Pick Up the Food / Souvenir Set

After you enter the ticket gates, use the smaller door to the left of the main entrance. There is usually a purple banner hanging over it. Inside is a hallway full of stalls with a number above each one. If you ordered a food Set A-C you will have a separate food voucher. If you ordered an Arena ticket + food/souvenir package, you will have a sticker on the back of your ticket. Go to stall #1 and show your voucher or sticker. If you can't figure it out, show your voucher or sticker to one of the ushers inside the building and they should be able to take you to the correct place. Please do not ask about food sets at the ticket gate. You can pick up your set any time from about 10:30am to 5:00pm.
