Komazawa Olympic Stadium (No# Komazawa)


Product Description


Tokyo, Japan

Komazawa Olympic Stadium was built and used as the main venue for football matches during the Tokyo Olympic Games, in 1964. Along with Omiya Stadium and Tokyo National Stadium, therefore, it represents a piece of history, as the place where football interest in Japan was born and nurtured. Though the years have passed this stadium by, and it no longer is used by any professional teams, it retains a very interesting architectural and inspirational character that is missing from many of the newer facilities in Japan, despite their high-tech features. One side of the stadium is bounded by triangular walls, which not only give the stadium its unique architectural feel, but also double as roofing sections which sheild fans from wind and rain (though only those sitting in the upper tiers of the main stands).

Although no mens' football teams currently use the facility for professional matches, the Japan women's national team has held a number of matches at the stadium, in recent years. This is a tribute not only to its historical significance, but also to the fact that it is a convenient size (seating just less than 30,000) and is located in a very accessible location, just outside the main "ring" of the city formed by Tokyo's Yamanote line.
