With the concept of harmonisation with nature, the Osaka Municipal Central Gymnasium was designed with two lush green hills as its motif. All facilities, including the 110 m diameter main arena, are all located underground. Such a semi-subterranean, multi-purpose space is rare among similar facilities throughout the world. For many people in Osaka, it is a familiar centre for local sports activities.
