Tokyo Dome

Top choice baseball in Kōrakuen & Akihabara

Tokyo Dome (aka ‘Big Egg’) is home to the Yomiuri Giants. Love ’em or hate ’em, they're the most consistently successful team in Japanese baseball. If you’re looking to see the Giants in action, the baseball season runs from the end of March to the end of October. Tickets usually sell out in advance; get them early at www.giants.jp.

Any tickets left on the day of the game are sold from the ticket office in front of the Dome's Gate 22 from 10am.

If you'd rather root for the underdog (whoever is playing the Giants), you can drown your sorrows in the beer served by the uriko, young women with kegs strapped to their backs, who work the aisles with tireless cheer.

Tokyo Dome is also used for pop concerts by major Japanese and visiting singers and groups.
