    Sumo was the best

    The Tokyo grand Sumo Tournament final day was so much fun. Voyagin made it so easy for us to get tickets together, I will definitely be using their services again.

    Amazing experience!!!

    My husband and I went to Tokyo last May, and for fortune it was sumo match season, we google this website and we read great reviews, so we decided to got tickets though this (apparently it's very hard to get tickets for Sumo because it's always on high demand and there are only few days for the match each year), we got the tickets for the upper level of the stadium, it was a really good experience, first of all they contact us that they were going to do a great effort to got the tickets but they finally got them, we went for pick up at Shibuya's office, the women that help us was very kind and explained us everything, the days of the match we didn't have any problems with the tickets we got inside pretty easy, we love the seats, if you are not a Japanesse speaker we recommend to get a radio that you can rent at the enter side only, you can listen the matches in english (only the last ones that are the most important though). Thank you Voyagin team for this experience I definitely gonna contact you again in my next trip.

    An enormous event

    I reccommend going to see sumo atleast once in your life, even if you have never watched it. The energy is good and the sense of tradition is everywhere at this event. Getting tickets over this site is a stress free way of securing the tickets, since they are sold out very fast. I reccommend it.

    Great Experience!

    This was awesome!

    Prices marked up x4!

    The sumo tournament itself was absolutely amazing! The experience was one of a kind. Although, there is a false sense of urgency to get tickets from Voyagin . Tickets on Voyagin are sold at x4 the price or more above what you can purchase at the box office directly at the stadium. AND you have to go to the Voyagin office to collect the tickets. Seems a little troubling that they marketed these tickets as rare and hard to get if we could have gotten them for $20 at the box office.

    robbery - bad seat with real price x 4 !!!

    I got the worst seat in the stadium when I paid more than 20 000 yen when the real price is 5 000 !!!!

  • Hadi Hadi

    Unbelievable experience

    Unbelievable experience...not to be missed! I highly recommend it. Make sure you get closer seats though, you will enjoy much more the fights.

  • Craig Craig

    Sumo Tournament was phenomenal.

    Ordering the tickets and working with Chie to fill our needs was a pleasure. Picking up the tickets when we arrived was super simple and far easier than I expected. I will definitely use Voyagin for ticket requirements on my next visit! Thank you all!!

    Highly recommending govoyagin

    Voyagin delivered the tickets to the hotel as promised. There was no hassle at all. I highly recommend their service. Thanks, Vogain. This was my first time watching sumo. Japanese audiences sitting beside me were so friendly. They tried to explain the rule and ceremony, and even bought me drinks. I really enjoyed it. I was sitting at Chair B zone. It was a little too far. Next time, I would prefer to get to Chair A zone.
