Japan’s National Stadium was officially completed Saturday, when the centerpiece of next summer’s Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics was handed over to its owner and operator, Japan Sport Council.

A creation of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma’s office, construction giant Taisei Corp. and design firm Azusa Sekkei Co, the stadium was completed in 36 months for 157 billion yen ($1.4 billion).

The stadium with five stories above ground level and two floors below, is the latest incarnation of Japanese sports’ spiritual home to be built in the neighborhood. It replaces the previous National Stadium used as the main venue of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, which had taken the place of Meiji Jingu Gaien Stadium. This latter venue had been a point of departure for students leaving for World War II battlefronts.

Domestic lumber and abundant plantings help the 47.4-meter-high woodland-themed stadium blend in with the surrounding greenery of central Tokyo’s Meiji Jingu Gaien area.

The 60,000 seats, colored in five different earth tones, create a mosaic representing sunbeams filtering through a forest.
