Overview

The celebrated Yoyogi National Gymnasium, completed in 1964, was initially built to house diving and swimming events in the 1964 Summer Olympics. It was designed by Kenzo Tange and was rightly lauded by the Japanese people for its graceful, swooping curves and the design of its suspension roof. The stadium is now used mainly for hockey and basketball and it remains one of the city's most recognizable architectural landmarks.
