If you have researched a little bit about Japan, then you must have already known that baseball is “in the spotlight” here. Well then, baseball fan or not, you should have a look at Tokyo Dome (nickname “Big Egg”). It is a home stadium of the Yomiuri Giants, a professional baseball team. It is used for concerts, festival and other events.
Just to the right of Gate 21 of Tokyo Dome, you can spot a wall with curved wooden man in baseball postures. Are you curious what is inside? Take a baseball tour into The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum with only 500 yen ticket!
Every museum has its history to be told. The Baseball Hall of Fame demonstrates Japan baseball’s development through recognition of baseball great players and executives. Amateur and professional, all are displayed with honor. The collection includes about 30,000 memorable baseball materials, such as memorabilia and photos. The museums library has about 50,000 books on baseball and other sports.
There is a ballpark store just nearby, where all baseball-related souvenirs are sold, and believe us, it is worth having a look.
It would be our big mistake if we do not show you around Tokyo Dome city attractions, which is a recreation complex for all ages, so no matter you are with friends or with family, this place is a guaranteed spot for everyone having fun![Information] Tokyo Dome city
