Great experience if you like baseball. We when to the last game of the season between the Baystars and Nagoya Dragons. The game was competitive but most enjoyable was experiencing the Japanese fans and their enthusiasm for their team. Each player has a chant that the crowd cheers when they bat. There was also a small band in the stands to encourage cheering. The food included bento and various selection of beer brought to you in draft kegs carried by young girls. NOTE: the fence along the field seating is low so foul balls can careen into the crowd. The stadium has staff with whistles to alert you to fouls but you still have to watch for hard liners.

It is big enough and great. The softball game run smoothly even one hour before the game the rain fell so hard. They didn't cancel the game nor postponed it. All the electronic devices worked well too.

Across the road from our hotel was the Baseball stadium and games were still being played when we visited - had a great chat to two of the staff there and you could just sit around outside and enjoy the atmosphere.

If you like baseball but haven't seen the Japanese version of the game, you really should, and this open-air stadium in downtown Yokohama is as good a place to see it as any. Take JR Keihin Tohoku/Negishi line or the Yokohama City subway Blue Line to Kannai station, walk west and it is a block away. You will be surprised at the vigor of the Japanese game, with cheering sections that will remind you of college. Get your picture taken with Starman and perhaps even see the Baystars win for a change.

FYI, Yokohama Stadium in downtown Yokohama is for baseball. For J League soccer, go to Nissan Stadium (aka International Stadium Yokohama) in the suburbs to the north, a 7 minute walk from Kotsukue station on the JR Yokohama line or about 12 minutes from Shin-Yokohama station if you are traveling by Shinkansen.

I really enjoyed seeing a Bay Stars game here - much more than the Tokyo Giants game I went to the day before.

The stadium is about a 30 min train ride from center Tokyo, then just a short walk from the Yokohama train station. Also, it's in a nice location, right in the center of downtown, within walking distance of the waterfront and surrounded by a playground and several thousand tulips (there were all sorts of people talking pictures of the tulips).

Once inside, the stadium was really neat. Not like the fancy new MLB stadiums in the US, but really nice for an NPB stadium. In addition, the atmosphere was great - the cheering sections in the outfield were fun to observe the whole game.

If you're a baseball fan and happen to be in Japan, I'd highly recommend going to a game here, especially as opposed to a Giants game.
