First to Review

We went to Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium to catch the Grand Sumo Tournament which is held there in July each year. Sumo wrestling is one of those things you just have to see when you're visiting Japan. Tickets can be hard to get, so if sumo wrestling is something you want to see, you'll want to pay close attention to the season you go and the gyms where matches are being held. The sumo "red carpet" is a total spectacle in and of itself. Watching the wrestlers enter the building with their entourages was so cool. It's worth noting that if you get front row seats, there is a very real chance a wrestler will land on you. We sat a bit further from the stage, but saw quite a few folks in front rows getting taken out. Going and seeing the Grand Sumo Tournament was one of my favorite things that I've ever done in three trips to Japan. I highly recommend going to a sumo tournament!
