Japanese baseball is a unique and one of a kind experience. If you ever have visited a major league game in the states, a Japanese game is a must visit. In Tokyo, there are two professional teams – Yomiuri Giants and the Yakult Swallows. The Giants were away, but we were fortunate enough to get to visit the Yakult Swallow... More

Never seen anything like it - from the sea of green (for home team) to sea of red (for opposing team) and the horns, chants, and even the fireworks mid game - was something I am glad to have witnessed in my lifetime. Easy to get to from the Tokyo metro and bought food and beers there. Had to leave... More

Forget the Giants. The Swallows have the stadium and a good team to match. Although smaller than MLB stadiums, the action is close at hand and the fans are always into the game. Tickets can be bought at the stadium and at Family Mart stores. We got seats about 20 rows back just to the first base side of home... More

Went to a Swallows game which ended up being one of the high lights of our trip. It was just so much fun. We bought tickets to all sports games in Japan, including baseball from Familymart stores which are easily found in Tokyo. Also when attending take plenty of cash as there are little to no atm machines within the... More

Took in a game here while on a business trip. It was really a fun experience. The crowd was really into it. Jingu is one of the few outside stadiums in Japan and it has a really nice atmosphere. Stadium is close to the metro system stop and the surrounding area has shops and places to eat. We bought tickets... More

It passed quit long time since my last visit. However, Air was same, never changed. Nowadays, there are many dome stadiums for baeball in Japan. Therefore, this stadium is very precious. I watched baseball game with fresh and natural air. In my opinion, base ball stadium should be like this although rain is critical. I started feeling it after reading... More

Baseball can be considered as one of the sport to Japan, so that they build extensive facilities and a magnificent stadium. This is the place. Stadium is able to accommodate up to 30 thousands of spectators. Although it can be said the old stadium, built in 1926, but still only be a baseball prestigious competition in Japan.

I put this on my itinerary as my father is a baseball lover. I have been to many American baseball stadiums, and I have to say, I have never seen anything quite like it. We watched the home team Yakult Swallows play the Chiba Marines. Each team had great game rituals, with singing, dancing and accompanying trumpet playing!!! When the... More

If you have any interest in baseball, you MUST take in a game at Jingu Stadium, the home of the Yakult Swallows, while in Tokyo. This is an outdoor stadium with great food options. You can also bring your own food and beer (you'll be asked to pour your beer in paper cups when you arrive). The atmosphere is incredible... More

We were made to feel very welcome by the Swallows fans. A really fun night out worth the trip for the home run celebrations. Give it a go. Booked using japanball.com who delivered the tickets to our hotel.
