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.

To start, I am not a huge baseball fan. With that being said, my colleague brought me to a game during my business trip to Japan. I had a great time taking in the sights, trying out different foods, and enjoying a solid baseball game. It was great to be able to order a bento box or other cool foods... More

Loved the stadium, had great seats! And you don't even have to leave your seat for a drink. There are staff everywhere with keg backpacks pouring your favourite beer, or mixing a drink for you on the spot. Really glad we went to the game!

As a huge baseball fan, I had to go to a Nippon League game during my week in Tokyo. The Yomiuri Giants are apparently the "Yankees" of Japan, but during Golden Week we risked the Tokyo Dome selling out, plus I preferred to go to an open air stadium, so I decided to go to Jingu Stadium to see the...

We had a great night out at the baseball. We purchased our tickets online from JapanBallTickets.com with ease. We arrived early and bought a few team souvenirs. We decided to follow the Yakult Swallows as they were the home team. Young ladies carried beer kegs on their backs and my husband was able to sample several brands at only 500yen... More

This is my favorite stadium in the Tokyo area! While it is a bit older, that adds to the charm. Also, much better than Tokyo Dome, plus tickets are much cheaper. You should have no problem walking up on the day of the game for tickets, especially if it is a weekday game. Now, if they are playing the Tigers... More

We had a great evening here. Get your tickets from the stadium itself,any 7/11, or ticket stalls that pop up in the city. Easy to get to and great crowds. You can take good and drink in or buy a number of things when you get there. I would recommend the fried octopus balls!

Lots of cool stuff in the gift shop that you cannot find elsewhere. They don't speak english, so don't ask for too much.

If you want a great window into Japan and it's weirdly great relationship with things American, take in a Swallows game at Jingu Baseball Stadium. Tickets are nominally priced and you can generally get fine seats just walking up to the ticket window the night of a game. The stadium and it's food/drink/souvenir offerings are a far cry from what... More

So glad I decided to go to a game. Definitely recommend for anyone to go if visiting Tokyo. Tickets are reasonably priced and the atmosphere is a different experience from North American sports. Bought my tickets from Across. #.1 Travel (which is listed on Yakult Swallows website) and received a free team small umbrella, which is a great souvenir. When... More
