Sumo Wrestling Events and Schedule

May 2014 (various dates), Ryogoku Kokugikan Wrestling Arena, Tokyo

Forget kabuki; sumo is a better show! If you happen to be in Tokyo during May you can catch some of the action at Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo’s National Sumo Hall. Professional Sumo Tournaments take place six times a year. Each tournament begins on Sunday and lasts 15 days. During January, May and September tournaments are held in Tokyo.
The competition begins at 9:00 AM every day with the amateurs.
The professional wrestlers start around 2:30 PM.
But the real excitement begins at 3:50 PM, when the top ranked competitors enter the ring.
Do Buy Sumo Tickets in Advance. During Sumo tournaments, tickets for the upper division’s matches are hard to find. Also, the first rows in the Arena are tiny cabins. The Japanese sit there on their knees for hours, but it’s unlikely that you can do that too. So you need specific tickets.
That’s why I like this Sumo Tour which takes care of booking comfortable seats, arriving in the Arena for the more advanced Matches and checking in on the Sumo museum to get some background on the origins of Sumo.

Check out the easiest Way to Get Sumo Tickets.
If you’d like to buy tickets yourself, checkout  Japan National Tourism Organization Page on Sumo

If it’s not tournament season, try to catch an early-morning training session at a sumo stable. Some are more foreigner-friendly than others. More info Here: Secrets Behind the scenes of Sumo Wrestling

Once Upon A Time

Once Upon a Time – a new nighttime entertainment at Tokyo Disneyland® Park

Tokyo Disneyland will add a new nighttime spectacular called “Once Upon A Time” in May 2014.
Tokyo Disney Resort® announced that the Castle Projection show “Once Upon a Time,” a new nighttime entertainment at Tokyo Disneyland® Park, will premiere on May 29, 2014.
Tokyo Disneyland Castle will be the focus of this attraction in Projection Mapping Show “Once Upon a Time”. This nighttime entertainment uses new projection mapping technology to produce a three-dimensional effect by projecting images in a way that fits the contours of buildings and other structures. This is the first time for this technology to be used in an entertainment program at Tokyo Disney Resort.

“Once Upon a Time” begins with Mrs. Potts from the Disney classic film Beauty and the Beast telling her son, Chip, a bedtime story. Many of the unforgettable scenes from Disney films, including Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella, are vividly projected in 3D on the exterior of Cinderella Castle to the accompaniment of favorite Disney music and special effects, such as on-stage pyrotechnics. Guests will find that this brand new entertainment is rich and full of wonder, a veritable “storybook come to life.”

Duration: About 15 minutes
Venue: Cinderella Castle
