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.

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
1873 if I remember correctly!!! So cool! Even though we don't read Japanese we enjoyed even minute of this museum! Baseball is a universal language, after all. The ticket counter gave us a big handout in English to explain the history and a free postcard...More

The Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame is a very small museum on the side of the Tokyo Dome. Very interesting to see the Japanese take on the game. Parts of this reminded me of Cooperstown. If your a die hard fan of baseball, this is...More

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.
