In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
The Japan National Stadium, designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and his team, served as the main stadium for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.

The stadium features wooden lattices and greenery that harmonizes with the nature of the connecting parks. While the special construction of the roof is pleasing to the eye, it also serves a functional purpose. Wind is channeled into the stadium to help circulate the air, carrying heat and moisture away from the field and spectators as a natural, eco-friendly form of climate control. The wooden eaves which surround the perimeter of the stadium use timber from each of Japan's 47 prefectures.
Accessible seating on every tier allows for everyone to be able to enjoy watching an event. The "Sora no Mori" garden on the fifth floor stretches around the entire stadium, offering a wide view of Tokyo. Even if there aren't any sporting events going on, the public garden allows any visitor to enjoy a stroll around this state-of-the-art facility.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
