Opportunity for sumo in Tokyo in November? 2022/10/27 01:20
Hello, I will be in Tokyo on 24/25 November and was wondering if there was an opportunity to watch sumo of any kind (practice or competition or something else). I have been to Japan twice but never got the opportunity before, was hoping to this time around.

Hmmmc on television as the Sumo tournament will be in full swing in Fukuoka.
Meaning also that all sumo fighters are there.

I guess NHK. I donft remember now, but itfs pretty early in the afternoon, something like 16:00 or 17:00. Ask in your hotel they will know.
There is also an English broadcast on NHK World, but I donft know if they do the full thing or only summary

When in Japan, I just scroll through the channel until I find it.

When at home in oz, I just google the online line viewer, and watch.

Usually broadcast on NHK, and it ends at 18:00.
You might want to start checking around 15:00 or 16:00. Toward the ends it gets more interesting (as stronger/higher-ranking sumo wrestlers start appearing).

NHK 4p.m. to 6 p.m. Depending on the tv, the broadcast is bi-lingual so you can get English commentary.
As you will be in Japan, you can also use AbemaTV - I believe they show the whole day starting from around 8:30 - I watch occasionally on tablet/phone when killing time on trains.
