    May 9th thru May 23rd - 15 days you can catch sumo at Kokugikan which is near Ryogoku Station on the Sobu Line about 2-3 stops from Akihabara.

    I suggest going on a week day since it's easier to get tickets and seats. The last day is almost impossible. You can buy tickets at the ticket box office around 8am or in advance at certain convenient stores. Cheapest tickets are around $20. these go quickly and the next price is close to $40. During the week, you can buy either and still sit close to the action on the second floor as the arena doesn't get full until close to the end. Sometimes I have sat in a good seat on the second floor the whole time without having to move at all.
