The tournament will conclude with three straight nights at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Sumida, Tokyo from October 16-18.

While the tournament normally takes place during the summer months, it was always meant to be pushed back to the fall this year. The schedule change this year was due to the 2020 Olympic Games that were ultimately postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
