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

I went to Jingu stadium for a Yakult Swallows baseball game. I bought tickets at the stadium about an hour before the game so I ended up in the visitor section which was good but not quite as great as the Swallows section seemed to be. $40 bought us two tickets about 3 rows from left field and honestly I...

Great first time experience of Japanese Baseball on our recent visit to Jingu Stadium to watch the perennial underdog Tokyo Swallows. After a few days of rain in Hakone, we were happy to be treated to a beautiful June Saturday afternoon, perfect for watching baseball! Inexpensive tickets, easy access to the stadium and courteous, friendly staff meant getting to our... More

Two hours before the game, the cheerleaders gathered at Gate 1 to greet the VIPs. I was allowed to take a photo with them. The game started in driving rain, I felt sorry for the beer girls who walked around without umbrellas doing little business. After 3 innings it cleared for a cool evening with a great atmosphere. After the... More

I've been to quite a few sporting matches, but I've NEVER seen people so excited about their teams as the Japanese!! These guys are CRAZY about their baseball!! And you can't help but be swallowed up by the absolute fanaticism that these guys have. The park is very easy to access after a short walk from the station. They also... More

If you want to see a ball game while you're in Tokyo, go here to see the Yakult Swallows for a night game. The atmosphere in the stadium is electric. The beer girls and boys who toil tirelessly up and down the terraces keep you lubricated and you can buy food there although it is limited. Most of the restaurants... More

Opted for Jingu stadium over the Tokyo dome after reading a few reviews, and so glad we did. After doing a bit of research, we got our tickets from a 7 Eleven, most have the printer facilities to sell them, you just might need some help from one of the employees if you're not fluent in Japanese! They were only... More
