Japan Open Tennis Championships

The Japan Open Tennis Championships (or “ATP Tokyo”) is an ATP 500 tennis tournament that is played on outdoor hard courts at Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan.

No tournament was held in 2020 or 2021 due to restrictions in place so the 2022 tournament was the first time in three years that an ATP tournament was played in Tokyo.
