What a small ball park. You are so close to the field. Great sight lines. Really has an old time baseball feel. Open air so you feel the full effect of the weather. It rained a little bit during our game which was actually very...More

I'm a fairly big fan of American baseball (go Yankees!) but the Japanese take their fandom to new heights. Bands performing as their team is up to bat, giant flags, only allowing people to sit in the section of the team you're rooting for, and...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
galleries.
