K?rakuen Hall (Japanese: , Hepburn: K?rakuen H?ru) is an arena in Bunkyo, Tokyo, Japan, which has hosted many boxing, professional wrestling, kickboxing, mixed martial arts and Lethwei matches. The hall is inside the Tokyo Dome City, it is one of Tokyo's biggest attractions. It opened on April 16, 1962, and has a capacity of approximately 2,000 people.
The venue hosted the boxing events for the 1964 Summer Olympics. In the area of pro wrestling, it is considered the Madison Square Garden of puroresu, as all of Japan's largest promotions have run some of their larger shows there, much akin to the WWF/E's monthly show at MSG in the 1980s.
In March 2011, as the hall suffered structural damage under the influence of the T?hoku earthquake, the events scheduled for the time being, including WBC triple female world title fight, were postponed or canceled. The repair work was completed on March 18. The Hall was closed until the next day, then gradually resumed a variety of events.
It was announced that a new version of Korakuen Hall would be built in Tokyo Dome City, with a construction finish time of around 2008, and it would hold 2,500-3,000 people. After the construction completed, the Tokyo Dome Corporation, which owns the original Korakuen Hall as well as the Tokyo Dome, would continue to rent out the original Korakuen Hall, lowering rental prices (currently it costs 1,500,000 Yen to rent) to allowing smaller promotions to use the building on a regular basis.
Since its completion, JCB Hall has been used rarely for pro wrestling events after being christened with a Pro Wrestling Zero1 show in early 2008. During 2009, JCB Hall was used twice for pro wrestling, both times for a tour ending show by Pro Wrestling Noah.
