Aikikai Hombu Dojo (合気会 本部道場) is the headquarters of the Aikikai which is an umbrella organisation of various national, as well as smaller, aikido organisations. Although the name strictly refers only to the main training hall (dojo), it is often used by extension to refer to the Aikikai organisation itself. The dojo was founded by Morihei Ueshiba in 1931 under the name Kobukan. The current building, which stands on the same site as the original Kobukan, dates from 1967.
