  • Exciting sumo tournaments take place here on certain days of the year. Be sure to catch one. But tickets are sold out months in advance. If you want a nonreserved seat from the very rear row of the gymnasium, then you can buy these tickets on the same day as the match. But be there early if you want to get one. The line starts around 6 AM!
  • Very nice place and nice show. LOVE MONSTERS FASHION SHOW 2017
  • nice history. gun model is interesting
  • Very nice place
  • I saw Sumo here and it was great, even the cheap seats get a good view, and it wasn't too hot. The Sumo takes all day, but i found it interesting so I didn't mind. Snacks and trinkets are available inside, they sell bentos at lunch time. It says you can't bring your own food in, but nobody was checking and plenty of people did. You might be stopped, but I doubt it. Just don't be too obvious. If you're sitting far away you might want to bring opera binoculars or something similar.
