I went here expecting it to be like baseball games in North America... boy was I wrong. Japanese people truly love baseball, and they sing/chant the whole time along with a band while drinking beer. It felt like this is the way baseball should be enjoyed, and it was definitely a great experience

I'm a baseball fan so going to a game in Japan was on my bucket list for our trip to Japan. Koshien Stadium is the home of the Hanshin Tigers. Unlike many stadia in Japan, Koshien is an outdoor stadium. It was built in 1935 so going to a game there is like getting to go to one of the... More

Hanshin Koshien Stadium is home ground for baseball team named "Hanshin Tigers". The team is very popular in Osaka area and, at the time of their game, the stadium shakes a lot with cheering by Tigers fans like earthquake (chukle).

I'm not really fond of baseball but watching a live game is different. This stadium has it all. It is SO MUCH better than watching a game in America. The atmosphere is amazing. People chanting, with the thunder sticks. The food is perfect. So so so so good! And the beer girls. THE BEER GIRLS. just the best idea ever.... More

The atmosphere at Koshien Stadium is electric, the chants and crowd participation unlike anything in the US. If you love baseball, you have to experience baseball in Japan and Koshien stadium is the place to experience it. The balloon release during the 7th inning is special.

If you have never seen a baseball game in Japan -- or if you think American baseball is boring -- you must see a Tigers game at Hanshin Koshien Stadium. On our baseball tour of Japan, this was by far my favorite stadium and in-game experience. The fans are so over-the-top enthusiastic that you can't help but get swept up... More

the best baseball stadium in Japan with green fields and the secret place for high school baseball players in Japan. Home ground of Hanshin Tigers and 7th inning every body flies balloon wishing Hanshin Tigers to win.
