Tokyo Dome (東京ドーム Tōkyō Dōmu, ) is a stadium located in Bunkyo Ward of Tokyo, Japan. It is the home field of the Yomiuri Giants baseball team, and has also hosted basketball and American football games, as well as Western-style pro-wrestling matches and music concerts. Its dome-shaped roof is a flexible membrane held up by slightly pressurizing the inside of the stadium.
Tokyo Dome's original nickname was "The Big Egg." However, this has fallen from use and is rarely heard. It opened for business in 1989 and was built on the site of its predecessor, Korakuen Stadium.
