Anyone have any luck buying tickets today? All box seats seem to be gone (less than 1 hour after general sales began) with only a few arena seats left.

The NSK announced about 3 hours ago on twitter the complete sellout - the papers should report later how many minutes it took  https://twitter.com/sumokyokai/status/1157508960284340224

Drop by the free photo corner for some snaps with sumo items. Right now they have a gold macaron and a cut-out of the US President's Cup.

Have a cheese-dog at the Kokugikan.

Or, have some Yubari melon soft-serve.
