The Tatsunami sumo stable, in Tsukuba-mirai, Ibaraki, is one of the most prestigious stables in sumo history. Founded in 1876 by Onigazaki, the current incarnation dates back to 1915. Asahiyutaka Katsuteru is the current Tatsunami elder/owner and has lead the stable since 1999.
The stable is not accessible to regular visitors or tourists, although can be accessed by those who sign up to the Tatsunami-beya Supporter's Association (annual fee applies). Membership grants access to a multitude of gatherings and events in the area.
