Nippon Budokan, the indoor arena in central Tokyo where many rock n’ roll and music legends such as the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Cheap Trick, Ozzy Osborne, Eric Clapton, The Carpenters, have played at.

While originally built as the judo competition building for the 1964 Summer Olympics, it has become a status of the best of the best in music perform there.

Granted, things have changed a lot since then, as many artists, groups and bands that don’t have an established career have performed there.  And it’s also a site that has been utilized for sports, graduations and other events.

But still, it’s a place worth visiting and experiencing a concert in their lifetime.
