See Japan's national sport live
The history of the famous Japanese wrestling, Sumo, spans many centuries, from its origins as an ancient performance designed to entertain the Shinto deities to its status as the country's national sport. This full-contact wrestling sport requires the wrestler (rikishi in Japanese) to force their opponent either to the outside of the circular ring (dohyō) or into touching the ground with any other part of their body except the soles of their feet. Japan is the only country in the world where this sport is professionally practiced. The sport features many traditional rituals, such as the symbolic purification of the ring with salt, and the wrestlers themselves live a highly regimented way of life, living, eating, sleeping and training together. This unparalleled tradition should not be missed if you have the opportunity to see it live. Buy or sell your Sumo Wrestling tickets on the StubHub website and embrace this unforgettable experience!
