This only cost about $4 AUD and you got about 12 balls. I had the left handed cage with a visual of someone throwing the ball, so quite realistic.

A pretty unique little batting centre right in the heart of the city. We enjoyed going there after spending a couple of hours at karaoke. Good for boys and girls alike. *If you’re new to baseball, make sure you go to the last three cages...More

A small but fun baseball batting range. A selection of ball speeds and difficulty make it open to beginners and, fanatics. ¥300 for twenty two pitches. Well worth a visit if you are in Shinjuku and, fancy a wild swing or two.

Well worth doing while in Shinjuku that's different from the rest of the neon nightlife. And they're accomodating if you speak no Japanese.
