Tokyo Dome City is a leisure complex in central Tokyo consisting of the Tokyo Dome baseball stadium, an amusement park, the LaQua spa, a variety of shops and restaurants and Tokyo Dome Hotel.

The amusement complex used to be known as Korakuen, named after the former baseball stadium, which in turn was named after Koishikawa Korakuen, a nearby Japanese landscape garden.

Below are the major attractions of Tokyo Dome City and surroundings:

Tokyo Dome
Hours and entrance fees vary depending on the specific events.
Tokyo Dome, seating 55,000, is the home stadium of the Yomiuri Giants and Nippon Ham, two professional baseball teams. Concerts, festivals and other events are held in the stadium when there are no games. Tokyo Dome, nicknamed "Big Egg", was completed in 1988 and replaced the former Korakuen Stadium.
