Grand Sumo Tournaments are held six times a year, three of which are offered at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo.
Even during the off-season, the Sumo Museum housed inside the Ryogoku Kokugikan exhibits 30,000 of Sumo related articles such as woodblock prints, Banzuke (official listings of rank) as well as Kesho-Mawashi (ceremonial aprons worn by Rikishi sumo wrestlers) to introduce the Japanese national sport. The exhibition is changed once every two months by theme.
