National Stadium (Tokyo)

The new National Stadium, built for the Tokyo Olympics, is located in the Jingu Gaien area, with the Meiji Jingu Baseball Stadium and Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium nearby.
The National Stadium is the venue for the Emperor's Cup final, the Lewin Cup final, and the University Rugby Championship.

Getting to the Stadium

The train is the most common way to get to the National Stadium. The location is like being in the center of Tokyo. If you are driving, parking is expensive and not very practical.

For JR, the nearest stations are Shinanomachi or Sendagaya.
From Akihabara or Shinjuku, take the Sobu Line and get off at Shinanomachi Station or Sendagaya Station.
When you get off at Sendagaya Station, the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium is right in front of you.
You can't see the National Stadium right away, so use your phone's navigation system to walk to the stadium.

If you use the subway, the nearest station is National Stadium Station.
If you use the subway, the closest station is Kokuritsu-kyogijo-mae Station, which is the closest station to the National Stadium.

Travel Tips & Information

Here is the basic information about Tokyo as a reference for planning your trip.

1. "Getting there & Around" Shibuya, Shinjuku, Chuo, Chiyoda, Bunkyo, Minato

Although we have divided the area to organize the venues, as for the 23 wards of Tokyo, it is not so badly accessible from the soil area.
Basically, the Yamanote Line covers the area to some extent, and in the middle, the Chuo and Sobu Lines run.
If you want to go around in detail, there are also subways, so it would be better to use your smart phone to look at transit information as you move around.

2. "Where to Stay" in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Chuo, Chiyoda, Bunkyo, Minato

Hotels in the Shibuya, Shinjuku, Chuo, Chiyoda, Bunkyo, and Minato wards areas are relatively pricey among the 23 wards of Tokyo.

3. "What to Do & See" in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Chuo, Chiyoda, Bunkyo, Minato

There are so many things to do and see in Tokyo that it's hard to narrow it down to just one: in Shibuya Ward, there's Meiji Shrine and Takeshita Street; in Shinjuku Ward, there's Shinjuku Gyoen and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office.
The best thing is that you can have a second plan in case of crowds or bad weather. If you are planning to go sightseeing and watch the games, it is possible that you will not be able to go around as much as you would like due to the crowds, or that it will be too rainy to go outside.
Therefore, if you pick up other places that you can go to in case of crowds, you will be able to go around smoothly even if you don't have much time before the game.

4. "What / Where to Eat" in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Chuo, Chiyoda, Bunkyo, Minato

Since it is Tokyo, there are stores everywhere you go.
The rest is up to you, what you want to eat and where you want to eat it.
We will pick out a few restaurants for you, but in the case of Tokyo, there is no way to cover them all, so we recommend that you look for them yourself on the Internet.
As with sightseeing, popular stores may have lines.
Therefore, if you are short on time and want to go to a popular restaurant, you may not be able to eat there, so we recommend that you pick up several restaurants in advance.
