An original 1964 Olympic venue, Baji Koen made a reappearance at the 2020 Olympics as a venue for the majority of the equestrian-related events.

Tokyo’s Olympic hosting plan was made up of 50% pre-existing venues including the green Baji Koen in Setagaya which was one of the locations swapped in later in the proposal process to increase savings.

Hosting the dressage and jumping disciplines as well as the eventing dressage and jumping phases, the venue is owned by the Japan Racing Association. When the Olympics aren’t happening, it’s a public park offering a green escape from the busy streets of Tokyo.

The park is about a 20 minute walk from Yoga Station, Chitose Funabashi Station, and Kamimachi Station.
