SUMO IN TOKYO 2018 (Heisei 30) and 2019 (Heisei 31, ??? 1) and 2020 (??? 2)
The cheapest tickets are ALWAYS available when you line up at the ticket booth in Ryogoku early hour. 7:45AM is official opening for unreserved seats called General Admission Tickets. Yes, first-come-first-served basis. At least 1 hour before which means 6:45AM-and-prior to queue is recommended to grab the last minute tickets. Weekends are not easy, you may have to start queue-ing up as early as first train get you there (5:00AM-ish).
It will be more than Sumo when you see all the fights including Ichinojo (Mongolia), Aoiyama (Bulgaria), Tochinoshin (Georgia), Gagamaru (Georgia) Kaisei (Brazil), Mitakeumi (Philippine), Takayasu (Philippine) and more. And very first African wrestler OSunaArashi (BigSanderStorm) from Egypt just got retired (>_<) All those listed in high ranking sumo wrestlers earn more than a million yen each month (good job you'd consider?). If you were in Tokyo area during Tokyo Tounament, please have this chance to visit Ryogoku just accross Sumida river from Asakusa.
