I went to the Koshien museum, tour, and a baseball game. Overall I had a positive experience, but it was a bit difficult as a solo traveller. The museum and tour were all in Japanese. They do give you a little paper with info on...More

This was my first time watching Japanese baseball. It was very exciting with all the supporters, singing, playing music and dancing.

No self-respecting baseball fan can visit Japan and not partake of the fun and unique experience of the Japanese enjoying (and perfecting, in my opinion) America's past time. First, since Hanshin is a railway company, reaching the stadium is easy on the Hanshin Rail Line...More

A Hanshin Tigers game at Koshien Stadium is a must-visit if you happen to be visiting Osaka or Kobe and are a serious or even semi-serious baseball fan. The atmosphere is at least as good (and often much better) than what I've experienced in many...More

A great experience to watch the home team play & soak the atmosphere from the crowd & experience japanese baseball. Try food from the stalls - giant chicken skewers & order a beer from the girls that tirelessly walk the stadium offering chilled drinks. Wait...More
