Beautiful stadium, and one of Japan's best. It has style, great views and good facilities. It scores highly in most areas as a place to watch football, so it's easier to list the minus points (none of which detract too much from the overall experience). Access. The train line only takes you so far, so it's a bit of a... More

Went to watch Urawa Reds vs Sendai game, it was a nice game ended with Urawa victory 3-1. Good ambience of the football fans , can totally feel the passion of the local fans and loyalty to their team. Basic facilities of the stadium are good too~

Went to see the Urawa team vs FC Tokyo (local derby) well worth it, fantastic stadium for viewing , the Japanese are very animated when it comes to supporting their football team and the atmosphere was special.

If you are fan of Football, get to a Urawa Red Diamonds J-League game. I'm not from Japan and I enjoyed every second of the experience. Massive crowds, fantastic atmosphere, you will love it. Not far on the train from Tokyo. Go Reds!

Held a under 12 tournament . Just before the National Under 12 Japanese championships. Small goals and small fields are ideal for juniors.Easy bus parking. Great train station very close. This is Josh Kennedy's J league home team stadium. The main stadium is similar to SFS in Sydney.

Saitama stadium is a great facility, not far from Tokyo. I sometimes go to the Urawa Reds games here and it's always a good time. They could learn a few things about stadium snacks but being in Japan, you can't expect good junk food. All-in-all a good place to go.
