Summer jungyo tickets

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

Some friends are going to travel around the north of Japan in August and they would like to watch some sumo if it's possible. They are now trying to organize all his schedule and they would like to know if there is any website where to find information about the tickets prices, how to purchase them, the venues, timetable, etc. I sent them the link to the NSK website, but it doesn't seem to have too much information there.

Thanks in advance

Eduardo

There's a bit more on the Japanese side, but I think you're expecting too much. As these events are locally organized there's no central location for buying tickets etc. Two of the stops do have promoter homepages linked in the table, with more detailed information available there.

Thank you both. One of them speaks Japanese so I'll send him theming to the Japanese website. They have tolD me that they could watch sumo on August 7th in Ishinomaki. They don't need any website for getting tickets in advance, but some information about the timetable of the exhibition and the venue, so they could know where to go. Thanks a lot for your help
