Any person interested in baseball, especially Japanese baseball, cannot miss this. As mentioned in prior reviews it is relatively small, but a baseball fan could easily spend a couple hours viewing the exhibits. If you speak English, be sure to ask for the English information...More

It was great to find the Japan Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s not Cooperstown, but the hall displayed great information about baseball in Japan. The Hall has bigger plaques for the inductees than Cooperstown. They have a separate section to check out the ball used,...More

I too am a big baseball fan, but the lack of effort in making this more of an international museum by explaining most of it in English is very disappointing. There is a minimum amount in English but it is so little I feel why...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...More

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...More

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.
