This stadium is a good place to catch a baseball game and see the beloved local team, the Carp. It's a short walk southeast of Hiroshima Station – follow the signs and the red-marked pathways.
A love of baseball is not a prerequisite for having a great time – it's fun just watching the rowdy yet organised enthusiasm of the crowd, especially when the despised Yomiuri (Tokyo) Giants come to town. For schedule information in English, see www.japanball.com, or ask at the tourist office. Buy tickets (from ¥1700 unreserved) at the stadium a day in advance or at 7-Eleven stores.
