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 plus PayPal payment fees. The payment fees are a percentage of ticket cost, so higher-cost tickets have a slightly higher service charge.

What's a Pre-Order?

A pre-order is when you make an order and complete payment before ticket sales begin. If you pre-order, we will buy your tickets as soon as sales open. Read more about pre-orders!

If the tournament you want is already open for pre-orders, use the Shop button to make your order. If it's not open yet, use the Register Now button to be notified when we open.
