ZOZO Marine Stadium Reviews
We had a good aerial view of it from the 50th floor of APA hotel. It was being prepared for some upcoming games. It is connected to Kaihinmakuhari station just some walking distance. Very interesting.... more »
Last day of our stay we booked tickets to experience Japanese baseball. Friendly and polite staff and fans, felt really safe. Highly recommended. Good seats around 3,000 yen each. more »
Had a blast.. If you're in Japan when a baseball game is playing... Go! I don't even like baseball and I had fun.
Went to watch the marines vs orix buffaloes. Great atmosphere despite the constant rain and a rain delay. Bring protection if it rains. Lots of food and games inside the stadium.
