Great way to spend an evening in Tokyo! Bring in your own food and drinks. Good people and good baseball! Well worth it!

Awesome venue. Everything including toilets, food and drink are very accessible. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the Tokyo Swallows thrash the Tigers. Atmosphere was electric!

Whether you are a baseball fan, or detest the sport, you must attend a professional Japanese Baseball game - and if you are in Tokyo, go see the Swallows. Buying the tickets: The Swallows have an English-language website, from which you should purchase tickets. Buy...More

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

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

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
