  • It is the home of the football J 1新 Niigata Albirex. Stadium will be held in many events other than football. It would be even better since the stadium is located in a large park, relaxing holiday.

  • Home stadium of Albirex Niigata. Big athletics stadium with a roof. Thank goodness there is roof to avoid the summer sunlight, of course, on rainy days.
