  • 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!
  • The beautiful place. I walk by and hope next time I can go inside to check detail.
  • 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.
  • Saw a day of a honbashu (one of the six official annual sumo tournaments) here and loved it. Of course, if you're not into this sort of thing, it may feel boring and expensive, but if you like it, don't hesitate. I bought a 4-cushion box type ticket on the day of the event because everything else was sold out. Since I was alone, I had plenty of space, although it came at a price (11,700 yen!). To save money, book way ahead. That is weeks, not days. Or show up early (~7.45am) to get a chair ticket...
  • Nagoya's sumo tournaments are held here!!! The box seats were extra small so get two seats per person.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
