Watch Sumo Wrestling Japan

The Japanese Sumo Competition, or sumō, is an ancient form of wrestling that dates back to the Edo period in Japan. It is considered one of the oldest martial arts in the world and is the national sport of Japan. Sumo competitions are held in specially constructed arenas called sumō-jo, or sumo halls, and are held throughout the year.


The sumo competition is divided into several divisions, depending on the skill level of the wrestlers. The top division, or makuuchi, is made up of the most experienced wrestlers, while the lower divisions are made up of less experienced wrestlers. The top division wrestlers are referred to as yokozuna, or grand champions.


If you want to watch a live sumo competition match, you can do so in several ways. You can purchase tickets to the event at the sumo hall, or you can watch the event online. If you choose to watch online, you will need to purchase a streaming service subscription.

Tickets for sumo competitions vary depending on the event and the location. Generally, tickets range from around 1000 yen to around 5000 yen.


Sumo matches are held throughout the year, but the most important event is the New Year Grand Sumo Tournament, which is held annually in January. The tournament is held at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan arena in Tokyo and is the most prestigious sumo event.

Whether you are a fan of the sport or just curious to learn more about it, watching a live sumo competition match is a great way to experience the ancient Japanese martial art. With tickets ranging from 1000 to 5000 yen, it’s an affordable way to witness the spectacle of sumo.
