    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.

    Amazing experience

    Amazing experience. Would recommend.
    Voyaging was great to deal with, tickets were at our hotel when we checked in.
    Sumo starts at 8am- 6pm. Make sure you go a little later as the best wrestlers are on then.

    Amazing sumo tournament

    Very easy to place booking and manage reservation, easy chatting with the staff to arrange some trouble I had because on day selected tickets was sold out, they found solution and proposed other days. Recommended

    So exciting!

    It was totally different from watching matches on TV, I could hear the sound from 土俵(the ring), felt the atmosphere from audiences, the holl was filled with excitement once the match is heated!

    I went there with my parents(in 60s) and my sister(in 30s) at noon, ate 幕の内弁当(Makunouchi-bento) and ちゃんこ鍋(Chankonabe) for lunch, wondered around the small museum in the holl, bought souvenirs, started watching matches from 3 pm, we all enjoyed everything very much.

    Voyagin Team kindly worked, they managed to secure the tickets for me from my 5th alternatives.
    If you plan to go and watch Sumo tournament, I recommend you to book tickets a few month before, tickets are sold out very quick.

    Sumo Wrestling

    The event itself was amazing. It was sold out by the final rounds so it was a good thing I purchased these early. The markup wasn't much more than list price so good value. And it was all as advertised: they couldn't ship them to a hostel so I had to pick them up myself. But the office is pretty easy to find in a district in Tokyo you'll be going to anyways. Thanks!! :-)

    Great experience

    It was a great experience. I actually planned my trip so I could see Sumo. It was a long day. I was unfamiliar with how long the early matches would take. So if you go early you can leave for lunch and return. The main matches start in th he after noon. I took great photos and the atmosphere was fun. I didn't get the radio translator. I thought it was unnecessary. My seat was good also. Thank you so much to the person who made the purchase! I had a clear view and could take lots of photos.

    Thank you
