DISCOVER: Sumo Spring Basho

The Sumo Spring Basho is one of the six annual Grand Tournaments of Sumo and the only chance to see a professional Sumo match in Osaka. From Sunday 8th to Sunday 22nd March, the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium, also known as the ‘Bodymaker Colosseum’, opens its door to wrestlers and fans, hosting back-to-back matches from dawn till dusk. Gaining momentum throughout the day, lower-ranked wrestlers take to the dohyō first. As drama builds and excitement mounts, energy in the stadium meets a daily crescendo when local favourites, undefeated champions and stars of the sport go head-to-head.

Tickets can be purchased at the stadium on the day, or in advance through buysumotickets.com
