Tokyo Dome City (東京ドームシティ?), referred to as Big Egg City before January 1, 2000, is an entertainment complex in Bunkyo, Tokyo, Japan.

It includes the world's largest roofed baseball stadium known as Tokyo Dome (nicknamed "Big Egg"), an amusement park known as Tokyo Dome City Attractions (formerly Kōrakuen Yūenchi), and Korakuen Hall. In May 2003, a spa resort known as LaQua opened for business near Tokyo Dome City Attractions. It also hosts character shows for Toei Company's Toei Superheroes, including the Super Sentai series.

The Tokyo Dome City contains the Tokyo Dome Hotel, a 43-story hotel that is easily visible from the street and from the Tokyo Subway Suidobashi Station, which is only two blocks away.

Tokyo Dome City facilities[edit]

Tokyo Dome City was built on the location of the former Tokyo Koishikawa arsenal, here photographed circa 1930.
