They lost the night we went to the game (and the nights before and after), but it was memorable all the same. First a practical note: bring your food - options at the stadium are very limited. Easily reachable via subway (Gaiemmae station) which gets...More

If you like baseball, this is a must. We got same-day unreserved bleacher seating from the box office at gate 9, way easier than the online ticket form. We had a great experience at the game, but here’s the two best tips that I’d wish...More

Baseball fans will enjoy watching a Yakult Swallows game. The cheering (with trumpets) is much more coordinated than at American baseball games, and creates a festival-like atmosphere. Another plus compared to American baseball - the game moves much more quickly (no batters stepping out of...More

Visited the Tokyo-series between the Yakult Swallows and Yomiuri Giants and had a great time. Japanese crowd is very enthusiastic and respectful at the same time. We chose this ballpark as several websites mentioned it as having the nicest atmosphere in Tokyo and were not...More

First of all, I'm not a huge baseball fan, in fact I hadn't been to a 'live' baseball game since the mid-80s, but sports fan or not, if you have time, a Japanese Baseball League game should be a 'must-do'. Meiji Jingu Satdium is one...More

We had a great time at the Yacult Swallows game at Jingu stadium. I liked that it was an old small stadium. Sort of like our minor league stadiums in the US. I have been to many baseball games but none were more fun than...More

On our last night in Japan we booked into see the Mariners play. This was so interesting. We stayed locally, and walked along with everyone else. There were food stalls everywhere and entertainment as well. We ate, got to our seats, and watched in awe....More

What a small ball park. You are so close to the field. Great sight lines. Really has an old time baseball feel. Open air so you feel the full effect of the weather. It rained a little bit during our game which was actually very...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art

Children's tickets are 500 Yen for outfield seats. Unfortunately the Yakult Swallows web site (assuming it's a baseball game you're interested in) does not break down what a 'child' is--eg. under 4, 5, 6 years or if there is... More
