    I went down to the ticket office this morning around 8am and everything seemed to be sold out. Ticket office wasn’t even open.

    Anyone line up today? What time did u need to get there by? Do Masu seats ever become available on the day? When not needed by VIP's etc?
  7. Hi, Sometimes it's fun to watch the rikishi arrive at the Kokugikan. Obviously most rikishi arrive by taxi but some walk from the nearby stables (e.g. Tochinoshin before he was Ozeki) and perhaps some even come on the train and walk from the station. Can anyone help me create a list of those that you would expect to arrive on foot? (either walking from stable or train station) I've coloured the ones that are in the area of the stadium with green.

    they will stay in the line all night?
  11. Thanks for the reply Akinomaki. Do rikishi from the same stable as an Ozeki or Yokozuna sometimes share the taxi and therefore go through the parking lot entrance with them? Am also still curious as to which rikishi walk to the Kokugikan from the stable or arrive by train.
  12. Hi, Where are the best unofficial places to buy sumo tickets? Has anyone had any experience doing this? Have looked on Viagogo (English) and Yahoo auctions (Japanese) so far. Thanks a lot for any recommendations, Ed

    Best unofficial place to buy sumo tickets?

    @sumojoann thank you so much for such informative responses and for going out of your way to find the information. I've not made much progress yet but have found some auction sites which sell the tickets and am keeping an eye on them. I will also see if I can find any scalpers near the arena. Fingers crossed!

    Best unofficial place to buy sumo tickets?

    Thanks! Yeah, im looking for tickets for this January. I know they sold out very quickly but that's why im looking for the most popular re-seller websites.

    Best unofficial place to buy sumo tickets?

    Thanks @Kintamayama but I think they don't offer any Masu A which is what i'm after. Will email and check.

    Seating map for Fukuoka Kokusai Center?

    @Akinomaki , do you have a map as detailed as the below but for Tokyo rather than Fukuoka? http://www.sumo.or.jp/pdf/honbasho/kansen/fukuoka/map_fukuoka1511.pdf Im interested to see where the 1 person MASU A seats are. Thanks

    I managed to get my Arena A seats for the days I wanted. Does anyone know if it's possible to book through the Japanese version of the ticketing website without a Japanese address? Also, what's the most popular third party website for booking tickets? Viagogo seems v.expensive.

    Anyone here hoping to buy tickets tomorrow? Also, what's the lottery that closed 2nd December? I know about the ringside seats lottery but this one is obviously different.

    PR for Hatsu 2020

    anyone entering the lottery? does anyone know if it needs to be a Japanese number that you call from? I read caller ID needs to work.
