Once a year, the Ozumo road show rolls into Nagoya for one of the 6 major basho (tournaments) that take place in Japan each year.

As with the the others, the event takes place over 15 days – starting on a Sunday and finishing on a Sunday. As you’d expect, the most crowded days are the weekends. If you’ve got the freedom to go on a weekday, you’re likely to have a bit more room to spread out. General seating starts at ¥2,900 for adults and tickets are sold at the arena from 7:45am (and sometimes earlier) on the day

The venue for the Nagoya tournament is the Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium.
