Grand Opening of Yokohama Budokan

Oct 10, 2020

The Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium is closing due to aging, and the new Yokohama United Arena and Yokohama Budokan are being built.

The Yokohama United Arena is scheduled to be built on the site of the former Yokohama Bunka Gymnasium, and the Yokohama Budokan opened ahead of the Yokohama United Arena, where the women's professional wrestling event Stardom was held as the opening event (originally scheduled for August, but held in October).

As you enter the building, the first thing you need to do is go up the stairs.

Go up the stairs and arrive at the upper level.
This level is the entrance to the Floor and Risers Floor seat.
Third floor seats are further up the stairs from here.

Probably because it was the first event at this venue, an overview of the Floor seating was written on the whiteboard.

This is what the Floor seats look like.

This is Risers Floor Seat called arena stand seats.
There is a partition between this area and the third floor seating area, so you can't go back and forth directly.

This is what the seats in the Budokan look like.
The third floor is also the middle of the first floor for an arena-class event, so the angle of the third floor is more important than the distance.
(Even if you are in the arena stands, if you are closer to the corner, you will find it easier to see the ring from the third floor seats.
