New Japan Dōjō (circa 2006)
Initially, dōjō were adjunct to temples. The term can refer to a formal training place for any of the Japanese arts but typically it is considered the formal gathering place for students of any Japanese martial arts style to conduct training, examinations and other related encounters.

In Zen Buddhism, the term dōjō is also used to describe the meditation halls where Buddhists practice zazen meditation.

In puroresu, a dōjō may have a dormitory for the trainees and rookies adjunct to it (or located nearby). The daily duties for the residences in such type of dōjō include not only training and practices of wrestling but also preparing the meals for other wrestlers by taking turns and cleaning the facility.
