    Natsu basho 2021

    Let's discuss this after he won his first 10 yusho. I think it's Hōshōryū who will be in san'yaku soon...

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Endo is such a great technician. It's a shame that he doesn't show that regularly.

    Keiko mawashi stolen!!

    I guess many folks here in the forum did notice that you had changed your avatar and were curious who the guy on the left side is, but were - like me - too shy to ask...

    Kotoshoho looks like sanyaku-material for sure. He seems so calm, cool and confident - amazing for such a young rikishi...

    That's his style of sumo! When fit, he's one of the strongest rikishi in means of pure physical power. And he had no bandage on his left knee - a good sign!

    Corona and sumo

    Sounds to me like the polite / reserved japanese way of saying: "There will be no basho in may."....

    Corona and sumo

    "Buysumotickets" has started to sell tickets for the may basho. I thought they would wait until the sumo association clarifies if the march basho will take place (or in which form it will take place). Maybe "Buysumotickets" knows more than we do?
  11. Hi, I have been in Japan three times to watch sumo live (2 x Osaka, 1 x Tokio). Since I travelled as a single person, I needed only one seat in the venue. As you may know, there are two different types of seats; "box seats" and "arena seats". Box seats normaly are located closer to the doyho, so in this aspect they are the better seats. The "problem" is, that you have to buy a complete box (with seats/seat cushions for three or four people); they don't sell single tickets for box seats. Now my question is: Does anybody know if there's a platform/place in the internet where I can find/meet other people who are willing to buy/share a complete box? I'm thinking about visiting the november-basho in Fukuoka....

    How to watch Sumo live from box seats?

    These are the reasons why it's difficult - if not to say impossible - for someone who is not japanese or at least lives in Japan to buy tickets at sumo.pia. I guess I will have to buy my tickets (like before) at "buysumotickets". That firm really works pretty well, but the seats they offer are restricted to the ones which are easier to get (talking about "fight against time when sales start").

    How to watch Sumo live from box seats?

    Hi Akinomaki, I have tried your links, but on the (Google-translated) pages of sumo.pia I can't find a "masu seat box". Unfortunatelly I don't speak japanese, so the japanese pages of sumo.pia are a ridle for me, and the Google-translated versions of these pages don't make really sense. But thanks anyway for your response!
