Tips for you
Make sure when attending a Giants game next door to leave time for exploring the mall! Complete with roller coaster and flume ride!
we went to a baseball game at Tokyo Dome - between the 2 biggest Japanese teams Giants and Osaka Tigers. We bought our tickets online in advance as I heard these big games sell out - other games you wont have a problem buying tickets on the day I believe. However if you want to cheer on the Giants you are best to sit on the 1st base side, and away teams support on the 3rd base side! we were cheering Tokyo but sat in the 3rd base side (we didn't realise) It wasn't a big deal there was still plenty of Tokyo fans in our section, just mostly Tigers fans cheering! it was a really fun night the Japanese baseball fans are great and are always cheering and chanting along. The stadium itself is easy to get to, right next to the station. The seats are comfy enough, I am a big guy and had no problem sitting there, they are close together so you will be shoulder to should with the person next to you but I didn't mind, it wasn't squashy, just cosy! the beer girls running up and down the aisles are convenient and its crazy to see these little Japanese girls lugging so much beer up and down the steps, I felt bad for them! Beer is 800yen so its not cheap but most sporting event products are more expensive! If you are in Tokyo make sure you get to a game and enjoy yourself!
