Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Yoyogi National Gymnasium is an arena located at Yoyogi Park in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan, which is famous for its suspension roof design.It was designed by Kenzo Tange and built between 1961 and 1964 to house swimming and diving events in the 1964 Summer Olympics. A separate annex was used for the basketball competition at those same games. It will also host handball competitions at the 2020 Summer Olympics. The design inspired Frei Otto's arena designs for the Olympic Stadium in Munich.The arena holds 13,291 people (9,079 stand seats, 4,124 arena seats and 88 "royal box" seats) and is now primarily used for ice hockey, futsal and basketball. Images of the arena are regularly featured at the end of NHK Newsline broadcasts because the NHK World studios are adjacent to the arena along the edge of Yoyogi Park.

  • A large Idol singer from the celebrity artist performances and events that open up. Close to the station and quickly accessible.

  • Kabuki and figure skating and ice-glazed, to use the first field. It is nice to line from the entrance and easy-to-find seats. Hard to sit, however, is tough. I need a cushion like that. I want to take to renovate a little cushion of a Chair.

  • Paid 140000 for nosebleed seats while people who paid less got better seats. Also had to wait in line for 45 minutes to use a vending machine to get a box of green tea that tastes like water
  • Super cool building to walk around and in, if you are admitted. Was here briefly in late October '15, and can only imagine how it is going to be re-erected for the '20 Olympic Games. Peeked in on what seemed to be a NOC-office. Exciting!
  • Great architecture! Worth walking by to see it.
  • Wonderful stadium designed by the famous Architect KENZO TANGE
  • In summer on the weekend is the best time. Here some fun and music

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
