Travel Guide - Ryogoku Kokugikan


Grand tournaments of Sumo, the national sport of Japan, are held in Ryogoku Kokugikan, as well as occasional wrestling, boxing, and other sport contests and musical events.
The grand Sumo tournaments are held in Tokyo three times a year (January, May, and September), and each tournament lasts 15 days. Even when there are no main tournaments, visitors can still enjoy the concession stands within the premises. Next to the arena is Sumo Museum displaying Banzuke rankings of Sumo wrestlers, ornately embroidered Kesho-Mawashi aprons, and other Sumo paraphernalia.
