EVENTS - FESTIVALS
With over 80 festival appearances in 30 cities worldwide, we attract crowds who flock to, what is for many, a once-in-a-lifetime sumo experience! From Japanese cultural events to sports expos, museum events, and more, live sumo exhibitions are a highlight of any large public gathering.
The elite sumo wrestlers are the highlight of each festival, bringing crowds of thousands or even tens of thousands to their feet! Make your festival unique with the presence of exotic, elite sumo wrestlers! In most cases, the sumo stars will also pose for photos and sign autographs for guests!
