  • I went in high school baseball cheer. To support their alma mater. Is better good cheer at the Alps but went for 2 hours ago. Because it runs out of tickets. It is especially Kinki vigor.

  • Anyone who wants to see a great ball game with the most passionate fans in Japan, MUST go to Koshien stadium and watch the Hanshin Tigers. I cannot tell you how excited I am each time I go there. The ...  more »
  • Place to cheer on the Tigers definitely can not miss! It's better than watching it on TV, but the raw reality of a Tigers fan heat here specialties.

  • If you are visiting Japan you need to see a baseball game! I went through the Hanshin Tigers website to buy tickets because the English ticket portal was sold out. I used Google translate and was able to navigate my way through and get tickets, not easy, but doable. The game was the Tigers vs. Hiroshima Carp... interesting team name, huh? The evening was rainy, but fans still showed up to the sold out game. The game was a blast and the fans were awesome. I have to admit, the Carp fans were more passionate and way better organized than the Tigers' fans. I paid ¥2,500 per ticket for third base area, pretty much anywhere you sit will be good because the stadium isn't that big. Unlike sporting events in the US, beer and snacks are reasonably priced and you can actually bring in two beers per person, but they make you pour them into cups prior to entry. Excellent experience so I'm glad I did it!
  • Was there to see the Summer Koshien in flesh. Crowded with Japanese people of all age, I now know what all the baseball mangas is about! Free to watch if you can find a spot on the outfield.
  • Not the biggest baseball fan in the world, but watching a game here and experiencing the atmosphere was amazing. It's so different than a Toronto Blue Jays game (haha). The stadium is old, and the bench seating isn't the greatest, but during a good game you'll find yourself jumping up to cheer quite often. Beer selection is Kirin or Asahi in a moderate sized cup for 650円. You can bring your own drinks into the park as well, but you must pour it into a paper cup provided to you at the gate before entering. Good food selection too! Tons of people eating curry around me. Ticket prices range from 1,500 to 5,000 yen or so, and can be purchased at Lawson, online, or at the gates. Go Tigers (:
  • First time watching a NPB game. Loved the energy in the stands. Fans sang fight songs the entire game. The 7th inning stretch balloon thing was also pretty great.
  • Excellent service! Don't forget to have a curry meal while you enjoy the game.
