“Great baseball memorabilia, fantastic little museum”

Matsui Hideki Baseball Museum
Ranked #2 of 15 things to do in Nomi
Attraction details
Reviewed September 25, 2011

Some really cool memorabilia here if you are a baseball fan. From the old Yankee Stadium, they have Matsui's actual locker area, panels of the outfield fence, and several actual seats from the stands. You can also see Matsui's World Series MVP trophy and World Series rings, his bats from every year he played professionally, bats from every member of the Yankees starting line-up from the last year at Yankee Stadium, and tons and tons of great pictures, trophies, awards, uniforms and more from when Matsui was very young until now.

The museum is inspirational, and would be a great place to take kids. The message of the museum is to dream big and work hard, and that message is constantly reinforced. There are also a few DVD presentations telling Matsui's story (with perfect English subtitles). The English at the museum is fantastic, which is not always the case at museums in Japan. Almost every item has full English descriptions.

Built next to the house that Matsui grew up in and the rice field he used to play sandlot baseball in, this is a little gem of museum that I'm sure baseball fans will enjoy, and I imagine even non-baseball fans would feel some inspiration from.
