The Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame is a very small museum on the side of the Tokyo Dome. Very interesting to see the Japanese take on the game. Parts of this reminded me of Cooperstown. If your a die hard fan of baseball, this is worth a visit. Admission is ¥600 for adults.

I am not a baseball lover but in Japan sounds very important, so this visit was a great occasion to get into sport culture of the country. The museum is well organized, with the hall of fame (impressive) and a museum with memorabilia and pics. 600 each (just cash, no credit cards) was a good deal. A great atmosphere with... More

As the previous reviewer noted, I also do not speak or read Japanese, however, this did not hinder my experience. In spite of the language obstacle, I nonetheless, enjoyed the experience. Many of the displays had signs in both English and Japanese, making it easy to understand. Overall, I would consider the plaque of the baseball Hall of Fame inductees... More

I don't speak or read Japanese so it was hard to get the full experience. I'm an avid baseball lover so this didn't hinder my experience. There are some nice exhibits and photos of yesteryear. Head to the museum if you're killing time before an event at the Tokyo Dome. I did it before seeing Wrestle Kingdom 10.

I used the library at the baseball Hall of fame about 8 times for research purposes, so I got quite familiar with the surroundings. First, if you don't read Japanese or don't have a friend who can, your enjoyment of the items will be rather limited; about 90 percent of the exhibition is in Japanese (although they do offer a...

The Baseball Hall of Fame is located at the Tokyo Dome, home to the Tokyo Yomiuri Giants. The dome is located at Korakuen, west of Akihabara electronics town. Access is easy with several metro lines in the area. The Hall of Fame is dedicated to Japanese baseball and provides an interesting slice of the game in Japan. The actual museum... More

I was a little disappointed in this Hall of Fame. There really isn't much to it, quite frankly. They do have some plaques, and they have a few areas dedicated to players like Saduharu Oh and Ichiro Suzuki, etc, which is nice. Overall, however, there really isn't much to see here. I just decided to stop in before a Giants... More

We visited on induction weekend and, in spite of the crowds, we got to see everything. They also organized the actual induction ceremony and did just a wonderful job. A special treat for all fans of the game.

Neighbourhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
