The area
Address
Neighborhood: Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.

my baseball fan husband was thrilled!
Oct 2020
in tokyo for our last visit to japan most probably and our good friend brought us here one day.
built in 1959 and moved to the tokyo dome since 1986.
has a library, reference rooms, and many memorable baseball materials.
needless to say my husband who follows the san francisco giants team was a very happy person exploring all the displays.
we'd had a great exploring trip in japan, hiroshima back up to matsumoto, with a few stops along the way including the kumamo kono hike and the nakasendo walk.
we were there in oct. 2019 but due to covid its taken me this long to write out our experiences.
a wonderful country and we have many memories of our times there.

A must see for any baseball fan
May 2018 • Couples
Any person interested in baseball, especially Japanese baseball, cannot miss this. As mentioned in prior reviews it is relatively small, but a baseball fan could easily spend a couple hours viewing the exhibits.

If you speak English, be sure to ask for the English information packet at the front desk. Between the limited English signage, the information packet, and Google Translate, you should be able to identify any object you are curious about.

It is located in the Tokyo Dome, so a perfect pre-game activity for anyone catching a baseball game at the Dome (although it may be more crowded at that time).

The Baseball Hall of Fame

It was great to find the Japan Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s not Cooperstown, but the hall displayed great information about baseball in Japan. The Hall has bigger plaques for the inductees than Cooperstown. They have a separate section to check out the ball used, bats, and gloves. They even have a vending machine for merchandise.

I had no idea baseball has been in Japan so long!
May 2018 • Couples
1873 if I remember correctly!!! So cool! Even though we don't read Japanese we enjoyed even minute of this museum! Baseball is a universal language, after all. The ticket counter gave us a big handout in English to explain the history and a free postcard with our baseball ticket stubs!

If you love baseball, check out this museum!!!

Would be so much better if in English
Sep 2017 • Friends
I too am a big baseball fan, but the lack of effort in making this more of an international museum by explaining most of it in English is very disappointing. There is a minimum amount in English but it is so little I feel why bother at all. If you are trying to attract outsiders to understand more of the history of Japanese baseball then everyone needs to be able to know what is being conveyed. I enjoyed seeing things I could relate to such as the plaques for Saddaharu Oh and Hideki Nomo. Also, there were some bats from American players that were great to see and I enjoyed seeing the uniforms of the Japanese teams. The simulated hitting we could do, off some of the Japanese great pitchers, was fun.

Japan's equivalent of Cooperstown.
Feb 2017
The Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame is a very small museum on the side of the Tokyo Dome. Very interesting to see the Japanese take on the game. Parts of this reminded me of Cooperstown. If your a die hard fan of baseball, this is worth a visit. Admission is ¥600 for adults.

A must see place to get Japanese culture
Jan 2017 • Family
I am not a baseball lover but in Japan sounds very important, so this visit was a great occasion to get into sport culture of the country.
The museum is well organized, with the hall of fame (impressive) and a museum with memorabilia and pics.
600 each (just cash, no credit cards) was a good deal.
A great atmosphere with a very good explanation in English (a sort of compendium they give you at the entrance) with historical facts.
The museum is located in the Tokyo Dome, again a must see attraction of the city.

Self-proclaimed baseball nerd who loved his time there
Feb 2016 • Solo
As the previous reviewer noted, I also do not speak or read Japanese, however, this did not hinder my experience. In spite of the language obstacle, I nonetheless, enjoyed the experience. Many of the displays had signs in both English and Japanese, making it easy to understand. Overall, I would consider the plaque of the baseball Hall of Fame inductees as the highlight of the visit. Each plaque was unique and provided perspective on the history of baseball in Japan, dating back to its first introduction by an American schoolteacher to contemporaneous times.
