It seems always pretty difficult to get a response from the Sumo Kyokai.

I would suggest writing directly to Shibatayama who is (I think) in charge of public relations, and include photographs of you and your dog so that they know what it is you are requesting.

Good luck,

We’ve been to Japan together without many issues, and I’m planning to be at the Kokusai Center for at least a week of the tourney.  I generally get single masu seiki day tickets, and this would work out fine.  The dog has traveled at my feet with me to Australia, Europe several times, other locations in Asia, and I live in Hawai’i.
