Anyone have any kind of chart of knowledge on how NJPW sets up Sumo hall in Tokyo?

I am getting tickets through Buysumo and am looking to select the Arena A Box for one night of G1 and the 2F special seat for another night. Does anyone have knowledge of what these seats are? I asked at buysumo but they do not have info on NJPW seating.

Googled "Sumo Hall Seating Chart." Hope it helps. 2F Special is probably one of the first six rows on the second floor.

Arena A B etc are the Sumo box seats. Ie no chair, you sit on a padded mat in an area. It is either sold as two seats or four seats, I believe, and for G1 finals it is probably gonna be sold as four seats so you're sharing space with three other people. Pro's - the crowd atmosphere is most heightened at the lower arena seats. Con's - if you have long legs your legs will probably get cramped, and it may be uncomfortable to share with other people. Not a whole lot of space, long show. (Google "ryugoku sumo hall box seats" to get a visual.)

2F seats are traditional chairs. The set up is quite merciful - the layout is just very good, there almost isn't a bad seat in the house. I was quite far back on 2F and still felt like I wasn't missing much, since I had a clear view of the ring at all times. Pro's - proper seat, lots of room, great view even though very high up in a big building. Con's - slightly less heightened atmosphere, only the biggest chants carried over to the 2nd floor.
