Ariake Coliseum (?, Ariake Koroshiamu) is an indoor sporting arena in Ariake Tennis Forest Park (, Ariake Tenisu no Mori K?en) located in Ariake, K?t?, Tokyo, Japan. It has a capacity of 10,000 and is one of the few professional tennis venues which has a retractable roof.

Events

The arena is used as the center court for the Japan Open and the Pan Pacific Open, held in Ariake Tennis Forest Park.

This venue will also host Road FC 24, instead of Ryogoku Kokugikan.

The venue will also host the tennis events for the 2020 Summer Olympics.[1]

In 1995, Fuji TV's hit cooking show Iron Chef held its 1995 World Cup there, with the court converted into an outdoor version of Kitchen Stadium. Iron Chef Japanese Rokusaburo Michiba won the four-person single elimination tournament to determine the best chef in the world, with the other participants being Pierre Gagnaire, Gianfranco Vissani and Xu Cheng.
