Yoyogi National Stadium
Across Inokashira Avenue from Yoyogi Park, this stadium was designed by Kenzo Tange, Japan's foremost postwar architect. Built for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, its awesome and daring shell-like steel-suspension roofing has earned it a spot in the Japanese Ministry of Construction's Top 100 Public Structures of Japan. The stadium seats 8000 and is used for concerts, mostly rock, as well as sporting events.
This is not an attraction unless you're a student of 60's architecture or something. If there's an event here that you want to see, then go. But there's no reason to go to see this place otherwise. If you are in Harajuku to see the kids or whatever, take a look over at it and think to yourself "1964 olympic stadium...wow" and then go on with your life.
