I am not even a baseball fan but I heard tales of this team and its fans and had to experience it for myself. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Fans were the best I've been around watching any sport. Every player had a theme song and as the innings went on, we were able to pick up... More

Koshien is a historic ballpark, and watching a game there, especially if you are used to American ballparks, is a completely different experience. Fans cheer the whole game, and each individual player has his own cheer. So much fun!

This is my single favorite thing my husband and I did during our 2 weeks in Japan. We are both huge sports fans, but I would imagine that this would appeal to anyone. Buy tickets, get there super early, buy some Hanshin Tigers merch outside the stadium, get something to eat and a beer, and then get to your seats... More

As a baseball fan I went to see a Tigers game at the Hanshin Koshien stadium. Extremely good atmosphere, very friendly and happy fan. They love the game and their home team. Also it is easy to access from Osaka by train (about 30 min from Umeda station). And can buy tickets from the booth also even after the game... More

Visited the esteemed Koshien Stadium on our last night in Japan, and finished it off with a bang. Rivalry between fans and teams, revelry and good spirits, and a beautiful building to boot. A must for any baseball fan.

Highly recommend going to see the Tigers at Koshien. We took our two kids (7 and 3) to the Hanshin Tigers V Hiroshima Carp game. We had a fantastic day, the atmosphere is great and you definitely don't need to be a sport lover to enjoy yourself. The fans (and pretty much everyone inside the stadium is a fan) are... More

I went there to watch Hanshin Tigers vs Hiroshima Carps. Since I'd read lots of Baseball manga and all the players' dream was 'going to Koshien'. Well, that's my dream as well. LOL I love baseball but since it's not popular in my country so I hardly had a chance to watch in the stadium. I'd been to Safeco Field... More

If you love sport and happen to be in the Osaka-Kobe area, then this is a must. It is so much fun! There is constant singing, chanting and drumming throughout the game. The fans couldn't of been nicer as well to us two foreigners, even giving us the special rocket balloons for the 7th inning. Also, having beer vendors walking... More

If you're a fan of sports or of just having fun, this is the place to go! The crowd cheers non-stop from the first pitch to the last out. Everyone knows the songs for each player, and everyone in the park sings and cheers together. The ballpark itself is beautiful. One tip - buy the balloons and the baseball bat... More

We've been fans of the Hanshin Tigers for a few years now. I had been to the ballpark on a prior trip, but this time we went and got to sit on the home (first base line) side. It was a blast. BEer girls come around quite frequently, as well as non-beer vendors. There are plenty of options for food... More
