There is an indoor stadium with more than half a century of history – Nippon Budokan (日本 武 館 館) – in the very center of the Japanese capital. It was built in 1964 to host the Olympic judo competitions. Nippon Budokan choosen as arena for karate and judo competintion for Tokyo Olympic Games 2021. It was for the martial arts competition that Nippon Budokan was originally intended, but later it gained worldwide fame thanks to musical concerts.
The first rock band to perform at Nippon Budokan was The Beatles. They held five shows here from June 30 to July 2, 1966. Unfortunately, not everyone approved of the holding of The Beatles’ concerts in Nippon Budokan, since opponents considered their performances to be a desecration of the martial arts arena.
Despite all the obstacles, the concerts of The Beatles were very successful, and soon Nippon Budokan became one of the most prestigious and popular arenas for both sports and music. To this day, bands and artists such as Deep Purple, Queen, Janet Jackson, Diana Ross, Led Zeppelin, Backstreet Boys, Eric Clapton and many, many others have performed in Nippon Budokan.
Nippon Budokan can rightfully be called a historical place that stores the energy of amazing artists and athletes within its walls. Let your visit to this Tokyo sports arena be the highlight of your trip.
