The last major sumo tournament of each year takes place at the Fukuoka Kokusai Center.

Like all the other grand sumo tournaments, the wrestlers battle it out over 15 full days to decide the eventual champion.

As with the other tourneys, the venue will be most crowded on the first days, the middle weekend and the last few days. Outside of these dates, it should be relatively easy to get your hands on an unreserved ticket. If the ushers aren’t being vigilant, you can discretely sneak down to a nicer seat.
