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.
Designed in 1964 by Kenzo Tange, Yoyogi National Stadium is famed for its unique suspended roof design, which earned the architect praise and even inspired the design of Munich Olympic Stadium. Its facilities are comprised of two large arenas that play host to numerous tournaments and sporting events.
Figure skating, futsal and volleyball fans can see games at the larger “1st Gymnasium.” Basketball and badminton matches are held in the smaller 3,000-capacity seat "2nd Gymnasium.” The stadium hosts various other sporting and large-scale cultural events, too. Check the website for the latest event and sporting information.
Note: The stadium is currently undergoing renovation work and all but the futsal facilities have been closed to the public.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
