This is a must do experience if you like sports at all. Japanese baseball is huge fun, and totally family friendly. There’s no aggressive people here like in other countries. The great thing, other than the baseball itself, is the crowd. There are special songs...More

I went to the Koshien museum, tour, and a baseball game. Overall I had a positive experience, but it was a bit difficult as a solo traveller. The museum and tour were all in Japanese. They do give you a little paper with info on...More

This was my first time watching Japanese baseball. It was very exciting with all the supporters, singing, playing music and dancing.

No self-respecting baseball fan can visit Japan and not partake of the fun and unique experience of the Japanese enjoying (and perfecting, in my opinion) America's past time. First, since Hanshin is a railway company, reaching the stadium is easy on the Hanshin Rail Line...More
