Japanese baseball games are amazing. And this is a nice outdoor stadium too. Much better than Tokyo dome. Bring in your own food and drinks and enjoy the chants and songs. You'll definitely make some friends too.

The atmosphere here is unreal, even though it was raining when we visited it was still rowdy. We sat in the swallows (home) section and their home run celebration song was pretty cool

If you're looking for a local baseball game this is a good option. Easy access via metro but we walked from Shinjuku (20-30 mins). The stadium has lots of great food options, one of the best parts! Beware the seats are very squashy. A great night out and a good option if you have time while in Japan.

The Jingu stadium is the home ground of the Tokyo Yakult Swallows. baseball team. The ground has been around since the 1920's but one would not know it as it is in good condition however it is an open arena compared to the home of their cross town rivals, the Yomiuri Giants and the Tokyo Dome. Access to Jingu stadium... More

As an American who loves baseball I had to see a Japanese baseball game and was thrilled to experience this old time stadium and fan support. It's more like a college football atmosphere than our pro baseball games, rich in enthusiasm and constant cheering in unison by fans from both sides. Loved it!

We went to see the Swallows vs the Carp. The stadium is divided into home team fans on one side and visiting team fans on the other. The Carp fans vastly outnumbered the poor Swallows fans. The different chants were quite fascinating. The whole experience was quite civilized and there was no animosity between the fans. Everybody was just there... More

If you are a US Baseball fan, you have to go to a game here (or anywhere in Japan). I have been to many MLB baseball games and would say that everything about my experience at a game here was far better than my experiences in the US. The fans are into the game the entire game. Every pitch is... More

Japanese baseball fans are the best. Small stadium by North American standards. Paid 16,000 yen for a standing ticket in the outfield (the cheapest). That's right with that ticket you don't have a seat. Ambiance was still great, had a good time.

Baseball is the most popular sport in Japan, and the Jingu Baseball Stadium is the oldest baseball stadium in Tokyo. We went to watch a match of the Tokyo Yakult Swallows. Amazing! Colourful, nice, safe event! The way fans of the Tokyo Yakult Swallows cheer for their team is to open their umbrellas and sing.

More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.
