Tokyo Dome, a 55,000-seat covered stadium in the Bunkyo special ward of Tokyo, is the home field of the Yomiuri Giants baseball team, and it has also hosted basketball, puroresu (pro-wrestling) matches, American football games, mixed martial arts events, monster truck races, K-1 kickboxing events and music concerts.
Opened on March 17, 1988, Tokyo Dome is also the location of the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame which chronicles the history of baseball in Japan. It is part of an entertainment complex known as Tokyo Dome City, which includes an amusement park, shops and other facilities.
Its dome-shaped roof is an air-supported structure, made of a membrane that is held up by slightly pressurizing the inside of the arena.
