Overview

Across Inokashira Avenue from Yoyogi Park, this stadium was designed by Kenzo Tange, Japan's foremost postwar architect. Built for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, its awesome and daring shell-like steel-suspension roofing has earned it a spot in the Japanese Ministry of Construction's Top 100 Public Structures of Japan. The stadium seats 8000 and is used for concerts, mostly rock, as well as sporting events.
