We went to watch the world cup qualifier between Australia and Nippon. The stadium is a serious distance from the train station...why? The home fans were impressive. But overall a great stadium with excellent amenities.

Went to Saitama for sellout match between Japanese National Team and Australian Socceroos. Long but easy walk from closest station, so allow time for this. Ticket collection and access was very easy. Food inside is average (and cold) - would recommend eating from the mass...More

Wow feeling. Goosebumps all the time. Urawa Reds' fans are awesome, chanting from the start until the end. Watched the crucial last game of the season where Urawa Reds tied Yokohama Marinos. Reds won the season title after this game.

Won 4-0 against Gamba, so the atmosphere was quite good.^^ A lot of things to do/eat around the stadium while I was waiting for the kickoff. I wouldn't take the bus next time, especially the bus back... Arriving by train is better, even though you...More

5 goals in an exciting game. FC Tokyo up 2-0 at half time and Urawa Reds fought back for a 3-2 win. 2900 yen for unreserved seat behind the goal. FC Tokyo fans sang a version of "You'll Never Walk Alone" before the start. I...More

I was there for the All Japan High School Tournament finals on Jan 10th and it was a really great experience in a world class stadium. As its the winter it does get quite windy so rug out if you are going in the winter.

Beautiful stadium, and one of Japan's best. It has style, great views and good facilities. It scores highly in most areas as a place to watch football, so it's easier to list the minus points (none of which detract too much from the overall experience)....More
