Kōrakuen Hall is an arena in Bunkyo, Tokyo, Japan, which has hosted many boxing, professional wrestling and mixed martial arts matches. Part of Tokyo Dome City, it is one of Tokyo's biggest attractions. It opened on April 16, 1962, and has a capacity of approximately 1,800 people. The venue hosted the boxing events for the 1964 Summer Olympics. In the rounds of pro wrestling, it is considered as being the Madison Square Garden of puroresu, as all of Japan's largest promotions have run some of their larger shows there, much akin to the WWF/E's monthly show at MSG in the 80s. It often is merely called "hall", in Japan.In March 2011, as the hall suffered structural damage under the influence of the Tōhoku earthquake, the events scheduled for the time being, including WBC triple female world title fight, were postponed or canceled. The repair work was completed on March 18. The Hall was closed until the next day, then gradually resumed a variety of events.Tokyo JCB Hall ("Korakuen Hall 2")It was announced that a new version of Korakuen Hall would be built in Tokyo Dome City, with a construction finish time of around 2008, and it would hold 2,500–3,000 people. After construction completes, Tokyo Dome Corporation, which owns the original Korakuen Hall as well as the Tokyo Dome, would continue to rent out the original Korakuen Hall, lowering rental prices (currently it costs 1,500,000 Yen to rent) to allowing smaller promotions to use the building on a regular basis.

  • I went to watch the new Japan Pro Wrestling. 40 South column looks 10 minutes because it was between the series and the end of a small venue. History of the hall itself is old but the building was beautiful.

  • I went and said I want to go to the journal of laughs friend. Journal prior to line up in front of the building is a toilet on the ground floor took advantage. The staff are great, it was beautiful. And up the stairs until the 5-floor venue this time. It is pretty tight. The lift is not confident in the strength.
