Tokyo Budoukan, 東京武道館


It was amazing, we did a short trip to the park, and we have not expectations about architecture that day. My architectrual guide was empy for that part of Tokyo, Adachi-ku,

Then at the real beginning of the park we saw this huge building.

It is the Tokyo budokan, wich means the place for martial arts, including kyuudo (Arc)-
