101004-0041 - Kokugikan Sumo Hall


Tokyo Meiji 1910s Unknown
The Kokugikan, also known as Sumo Hall, was opened in 1909 (Meiji 42) in Tokyo’s Ryogoku district. It was designed by famed architect Kingo Tatsuno, who also designed Tokyo Station (1914) and the headquarters of the Bank of Japan (1896). The building was destroyed by fire, the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and WWII bombing, but it was rebuilt each time. It was demolished in the early 1980s, just a wee bit over 70 years old.
