  • We visited during a sumo tournament. We had seats all the way in the back but could still see really well :) The AC is a bit weak but we were comfortable with a simple fan. Also, we brought our baby and I was pleasantly surprised that they had a nursing area set up!
  • Sumo tournament was excellent! Great stadium, lots of fun! You get up close to the sumos. Even for those not a regular watcher, this is a great event. For getting last minute tickets for the bashi on the day, start lining up around 6am! They start selling at around 7:45am but you will miss out if you arrive then. Worth the wait. Tickets are 2900yen per adult.
