Hakkiyoi: Sumo at Kitte

Things to do

What better way to make use of the empty space inside Marunouchi's Kitte building than to set up a full-on sumo dohyo (ring) on the ground floor? Taking time out of their busy training schedules in the lead-up to September's Grand Sumo tournament at the Kokugikan, a number of top rikishi will be making appearances during the event period. You'll also want to check out the Grand Sumo exhibition (on 11am-9pm August 20-26, 1F Atrium) before the main event on August 27, when all four yokozuna wrestlers are scheduled to step into the ring. You'll need a special ticket to see this one up close, though – details (in Japanese) can be viewed here.
