Great stadium to see a Japanese baseball game (Yakult Swallows home turf) - You can get cheap tickets on the same day (around $10) - You can bring in your own food and beer!! Unbelievable! - You can get a real feeling of Japanese culture (the Japanese are crazy about baseball and being in a stadium is an unforgettable experience)

I wanted to see a Japanese baseball game while in Tokyo. The Giants were sold out so we went to Jingu Stadium to see the Yakult Swallows. So glad we did. The atmosphere is electric with fans singing the entire game. We walked up at game time on a Sunday evening and had no trouble getting two seats together. 20,000... More

This has really been one of the highlights of our time in Tokyo. Super passionate fans, bands, cheers, props, etc... a totally new experience for MLB fans. In fact, much more entertaining than a MLB game. The quality of play is also very good.

Worth a visit for any baseball fans. Really no bad seats in the mid sized stadium that's the equivalent to some college, minor league or summer camp stadiums in the U.S. Makes for a very comfortable and easy visit. The Swallows fans, like most Japanese ball fans, are really passionate about their support. You have to experience it yourself to... More

Meiji Jingu Stadium fees a lot smaller than the 38,000 seats that are listed on the web, and as an older stadium it probably doesn't have all of the new and shiny facilities that a new one might have, but it was still good for a summer evening watching baseball. Access: very good - the local subway (Ginza line) helped... More

Went to watch a baseball game with Tokyo Swallows Vs Chunichi Dragons (Nagoya) was a great night paid 1600 yen per ticket it was on a Friday evening the cheaper option available. You also can go Saturday and Sunday day. The atmosphere created by the locals and visiting fans was great, they take the game seriously and with passion.

We went to see the Tokyo Swallows against the Chunichi Dragons and it was great fun. We got great tickets, and had an exceptional view, but the size of the Jingu Ballpark means you'd have an excellent view from pretty much any seat. We got there by train, via Shinamouchi Station, and its a 10 minute walk from there. The... More

Meiji Jingu stadium is an older stadium, of course, but the structure itself is only part of it. The fans, the atmosphere, the sounds of the stadium/fans, the club (Yakult Swallows) make for a fun experience at the ol' ball game in Tokyo. Seating feels a bit tight compared to US stadium seats, so if you need space you are... More
