It was opened in October 1964 for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games and has a distinctive suspension roof design.

The venue was used for water sports during the games and went to to be used for other sports like basketball and gymnastics as well as being a concert venue.

The venue name in Japanese is Yoyogi Daiichi Taiikukan.
