This is the stadium where the Tokyo Giants play. The venue itself is quite large, lots of seating and standing space, and the food is reasonably priced vs. some of the North American arenas I have been to. Everybody is into the game and patrons seem to know all the cheers and slogans to yell. Staff there is friendly, buying beer is no problem and there is a good variety of merchandise (also at reasonable prices).

Awesome for families. Firstly you have the Tokyo Dome which is iconic for Baseball and Wrestling etc. Then the Korakuen Hall, site of arguably the greatest wrestling matches of all time, but the surrounding facilities are great. There is a ton of food options... not exactly a slice of Japan but great for families, especially ones with prams. The highlight in the Thunder Dolphin roller coaster which is amazing. There are tons of other rides, a mall, hotels etc. You could spend a whole day in the complex easily.

This is a purpose built baseball stadium, complete with roof and stadium seating. We have nothing quite as fantastic as this in Australia. A lot more goes on at the Tokyo Dome and there's even a rollercoaster built into the side of a tall building opposite, an astonishing sight and part of the attached Tokyo Dome fun park no doubt. But enough with the gibberish this is a review of a baseball stadium. The seats were comfortable and there was even a cup holder for your beer or other frothy beverage on the seat in front. Speaking of which there were young, good looking women running up and down the stairs with beer on tap strapped to their backs and wearing resplendent looking uniforms which was nice if a little sexist. We sat just behind the first base dugout on the Korean side among the Korean fans who were a heap of fun. Snagged a foul ball as if the baseball God's were shining their light upon us. BTW the final score saw Korea beat Mexico 7-3 which didn't really matter as I was just happy to be there. Baseball is Japan's national sport (one of them at least) and this is a shrine to it. Large scale sport is always worth a visit - especially in a foreign country. Go here, see a game. Next time I hope to see an NPB game or better yet a game involving the national team, Samurai Japan. The Japanese support is said to be legendary.

I didn't go into the dome itself so can't rate it on that. But the area around it had a nice mix of shops and the Christmas lights were really nice. There was also an arcade for lobbing some Yen into in a futile attempt to win yourself a cute toy (unless you are my wife who seems blessed with a winning streak this year!)

Fun for everyone! The amusement park outside of the dome offers something for everyone. We rode the roller coaster, sky drop, and center less Ferris wheel. There were tons of shops and restaurants to walk through. Everyone in our party had a great time with all of the different offerings and age level appropriate rides.
