No need to ship yourself over to Japan to experience the 1500-year-old cultural icon that is sumo—live sumo wrestling is headed to Sydney and Melbourne for a super special one night only event.
Full details are yet to be revealed, but here’s what we know so far. You’ll be able to experience sumo first hand—the earth-shattering stomping, traditional sumo rituals and full contact wrestling, with each “rikishi” trying to force one another out of the circular ring.
And to make the experience all the more authentic, there’ll be a blossom bar serving Japanese beer, sake, sushi and bento boxes.
There’ll be a few ticketing options to choose from—ranging from general admission to ringside seats and—if you dare—the chance to actually step into the ring and have a round with a real sumo. Head here for more details.
