Buying Sumo Tickets Online

Having read the Sumo website, it seems that all sites selling tickets are in Japanese.

I am coming to Tokyo in May and would want to buy tickets for the May tournament before I arrive.

Does anyone know of an online booking site or agent where I can buy tickets that are in English not Japanese

I've never used them myself but I hear that they are reasonable and reliable.

I have been working with Jeff from buysumotickets.com to buy tickets for the March tournament in Osaka. I contacted him back in Oct. and he said the tickets wouldn't be on sale until after the first of the year, but he would put me in his file to contact in January. Low and behold he really did contact me last week to let me know that presale tickets were available. I have been VERY impressed with his information and responsiveness.

i have used Jeff at http://www.buysumotickets.com/ also but now you can buy them directly and they have a special pick up area for you at the venue. i think the price will be the same which ever way you go...at least with Jeff you have certainty. unlike the guy selling B-ball tickets, Jeff only makes a small amount on each sale. BTW, the tickets for the May tournament do not go on sale until April 9th.
