What better way to welcome meeting-goers and conference attendees to Japan than at a traditional Sumo wrestling stadium? This venue in Ryogoku Tokyo, less than 45 minutes from the airport and a short walk from the railroad station, is steeped in Japanese tradition. After all, Sumo wrestling is the national sport of Japan. Last year, designer Christian Dior turned the wrestling stadium into a world-class runway show, unveiling their latest fashions while in the process instantly globalizing their brand.


With a maximum capacity of 11,100, it’s one of the best places to hold an ambitious concert, fashion show or trade event. Need something smaller, say for 600-1100 guests? The hall can accommodate a variety of functions, such as corporate meetings, receptions and exhibitions. Recently, the IBA (International Bar Association) and global law firm White & Case chose this unique location to entertain their delegates and business partners.

For a little fun and education on the history, culture and sport of Sumo, guests can be taken on scheduled “back-stage” tours of the Sumo Stadium, as well as peruse the Sumo Museum located within the venue.
