The tournament will last for 15 days during the month of July and will be held in the Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium. Capable of hosting up to 7,500 people, the gymnasium is situated on the site of Nagoya Castle, and is considered an iconic Sumo tournament venue, having hosted the July tournament since 1965.
They will also be fighting for the yūshō, or championship prize, that is awarded to the wrestler with the most wins at the end of each tournament. The prize consists of a cash purse, which can be upwards of 10 million yen.
If previous years are anything to go by you can expect quite a tournament. The 2015 event saw legendary Mongolian wrestler Hakuhō emerged with the yūshō, finishing with a spectacular 14-1 winning record, extending his record to 35 top division championships, the most of any wrestler. And who could forget last year's success story as Japan got its first Sumo Champion in 10 years with Kotoshogiku's victory in the Emperors Cup.
