How to enjoy watching a baseball game at Tokyo Dome
Once you visit Tokyo Dome, no doubt many people will want to watch a baseball game.
We'll provide you with info on purchasing same-day tickets, as well as the unique Japanese method of cheering.
We'll also introduce you to some of the dining and merchandise available within Tokyo Dome.
1. How to purchase same-day tickets
At Tokyo Dome, the race for the pennant (the regular season) is held from the end of March, when the professional baseball season begins, until around October.
On days when there is a baseball game at Tokyo Dome, there are always a large number of visitors so tickets may be sold out, but if you're lucky you can purchase same-day tickets for standing seats.
- ※Depending on the number of remaining same-day tickets, they may not be available for purchase.
- ※Please refer to the Tokyo Dome schedule for baseball game information.
2. How to enter
Tokyo Dome is an air-supported dome, so all gates (entryways) are revolving doors.
We totally get that you want to get into the Dome as fast as possible, but please take the revolving doors one person at a time!
3. How to cheer
Fans sing in accompaniment to the performance of the cheering squad, and wave their orange towels as they cheer.
It might be surprising at first, but as you get used to it, no doubt you'll start to feel the rhythm and have a great time!
Consider purchasing a towel at the store for when you cheer on Tokyo Dome's home team, the "YOMIURI GIANTS!"
When the team hits a home run or scores a run, everyone waves their towels around - that's "Giants Style!"
4. Head to the specialty shops to get your merchandise!
When you watch a baseball game at Tokyo Dome, cheer goods are a must. If you're thinking about making a purchase, visit the "BALL PARK STORE" or the "G-SHOP."
"BALL PARK STORE" offers merchandise not just from the Tokyo Giants, but from all 12 teams in the NIPPON PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL ORGANIZATION; they also offer Tokyo Dome original merchandise!
5. How to enjoy the dining options
The concourse of Tokyo Dome is packed full of shops.
Part of the experience of watching a baseball game at Tokyo Dome includes picking out your favorite food from the wide variety of dining options, including uniquely Japanese "DONBURI" or "OBENTO."
If you experience everything from 1-5, you'll be a master of watching Japanese baseball. What do you think? It makes you want to come again, doesn't it?
Oh, and when you leave, be sure to take the revolving doors one person at a time!
