Sumo Hall

The indoor sporting arena known as Ryōgoku Kokugikan is also frequently referred to as "Sumo Hall" owing to its popular sumo wrestling tournaments. Although the venue features boxing, music concerts, and pro-wresting competitions, it is primarily known for sumo and even features a sumo museum on its grounds. Ryōgoku Kokugikan has enough seating for 13,000 and packs the house with spectators to witness these enormous athletes battle it out. As the center of the sumo world, it draws fans from all over the planet. If you're looking for an exciting way to spend some time, grab a bento box and a ticket and cheer your favorite wrestler on to victory.
