Event hall

Built to stage judo events at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, Budokan was established to popularize Japanese martial arts.
Characterized by its octagonal shape and onion-domed decoration of the roof, this building was designed to represent Japan's traditions and Buddhism.
Nowadays, it is used for a variety of events, not just martial arts. All kinds of musical competitions, graduations and corporate events are held here, too. Since it is especially well-known as Japan's mecca for live musical performances by rock bands or pop idols, many musicians long to play on stage here.

Highlights

  • This building features a unique design based on Japan's traditions.

    賽事演出活動的好地方
    館內既有武術比賽,又時不時會舉行活動。音響效果也會很棒,它坐落在一個絢麗的公園裡。
