A brief history of Sumo wrestling
Sumo is a sport which has been an important part of Japanese culture since the Edo period in the 17th century. However, it was in 1958 when the six Grand Sumo Tournaments appeared, divided by month: January, May, September (all three take place in Tokyo), March (which takes place in Osaka), July (which takes place in Nagoya) and the last one of the year, in November (which takes place in Fukuoka). Traditionally, matches feature the lower-ranked contestants in the morning - also called jonokuchi - and higher-ranked wrestlers at the end of the day. This way spectators are able to see how experience and technique affect the level of the wrestling, getting to appreciate the hardest matchups after a whole day of excitement! We advise you to buy your July Grand Sumo Tournament Nagoya tickets as soon as possible so you don't have that nasty SOLD OUT disappointment.
