Sumo Nagoya Basho

The 2005 July basho (sumo tournament) got underway at the Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium in Nagoya on July 10 and will last until July 24.

Tickets for the day's action are available from the Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium box office. (Opens at 8:20am)

Prices for general admission start at 2,800 yen for adults.

Interest in sumo has waned somewhat in Japan as the top division is now dominated by Mongolian-born wrestlers including the grand champion (yokozuna) Asashoryu, who is favorite to land the Nagoya tourney.
