  • Facility in Niigata Prefecture so very cheap 100 yen and 200 yen is available tracks etc. However, for the Niigata Albirex's home ground, turf in absolutely no. If if there's just careful, offers much of the daytime on weekdays, no the occupation specification I can be alone. Time jogging, you should use?. You can also rent inexpensive athletic equipment. I would call out to the staff on the left side, in the entrance easily if necessary.

  • It is the home stadium of Albirex Niigata. Do not match the number of seats and the number of customers from the popular reduction team, is almost empty at any time. It is possible to see in places but more or less if you buy a cheap seat. (If the seats) tracks, feel far away. Many toilet is clean, but the wind come through very cold experience. Around the Park crowded with many families not game day.
