One of the most viewed and exciting sports events in the Japanese sporting world is baseball. Japanese baseball is a tremendous experience full of energy, color, and fun. True baseball fans understand how unique and exciting sporting events are since they allow you to chillout and enjoy the company of friends, family, and loved ones. Any true sports enthusiast knows that it is a one-of-a-kind and exciting sporting event.
In Japan, baseball culture is distinctly different from the culture experienced in the United States. Although the rules are nearly identical, American players immediately notice significant changes in how the game is played and arranged in Japan. In the United States, the emphasis is on the individual's function, but this is not the case in Japan, where the focus is on the group's strength and harmony. The critical difference is the team spirit or unity most frequently observed in Japanese baseball sports. There is a much greater sense of playing for the team and less emphasis on individual success in Japan than in the United States.
The Nippon Professional Baseball League is the highest level of baseball in Japan. Locally, it is often called Puro Yakyū (プロ野球), which translates to Professional Baseball, and it has two divisions, the Pacific League and the Central League.
The Chiba Lotte Marines is a professional baseball team in Japan's Pacific League based in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, in the Kantō region, and Lotte Holdings Co., Ltd owns the team. The Chiba Lotte Marines, who have won the League title five times (1950, 1960, 1970, 1974, and 2005), chose its name because of its significance to the sea.
In one of this season's anticipated games, the Tokyo Yakult Swallows will face the Chiba Lotte Marines on the 31st of May, 1st, and 2nd of June 2022 at 18:00 prompt. The Meiji Jingu Baseball Stadium, home of the Tokyo Yakult Swallows, will host this match, and tickets can be purchased from Activity Japan's website. Ticket prices to Baseball games vary depending on the stadium and seat location, However, purchasing a ticket from Activity Japan will put you in the perfect spot for an unforgettable Japanese baseball experience packed with, excitement, entertainment, relaxation and an amazing view of the Meiji Jingu Baseball Stadium. You'll also get your money's worth because you'll spend about 3 hours at the stadium.
Japanese stadium foods are simply delicious. Throw aside the peanuts and hotdogs. Order some yakitori (chicken skewers), yakisoba noodles, or beef curry and rice. To wash it all down, try sake or red wine. If a beer vendor walks by your seat, taste the beer; you'll get a chilled one direct from a specially made knapsack keg.
On the topic of beer, in the United States, almost anybody from any aspect of life can be seen slinging beer, while in Japan, only young females do it. These Uriko spend the whole game dashing up and down the stadium's aisles, pouring draft beer into cups drawn from a utility belt holstered around their waist. It's an incredible feat that requires the Uriko to carry and serve roughly thirty pounds of beer while dashing around the ballpark.
What's more, you can actually tell what beer an Uriko is carrying by looking at the Uriko's costume. These clothes are generally brightly colored, with shorts and shirts bearing a prominent logo of the beer they're selling. And because Uriko’s don't work for the stadiums and instead work directly for the beer businesses, they wear jerseys depending on the beer they're pouring rather than uniforms supporting the stadium's home team. Consider what it would be like to buy beer straight from Budweiser, Miller, or Heineken during a sporting event. How amazing this that?
Filling Jingu's 48,000 seats are some of the liveliest fans you'll ever encounter. Swallows’ fans have one of the most delightful ways to celebrate a run. When that happens, a sea of green and blue umbrellas blossom across the right-field bleachers as Yakult fans discreetly tell the opposing pitcher it's time he headed for the showers.
Book a ticket on Activity Japan, take a trip to the Meiji Jingu Baseball Stadium, home of The Tokyo Yakult Swallows, and a completely different baseball culture will reveal itself. While you're there, don't miss out on some of Japan's distinctive stadium meals, which are guaranteed to be unlike anything you've ever tasted.
It's not just the sake, squid and the beer girls carrying draft beer kegs; it's about fan engagement, participation, team spirit, pride, devotion, and loyalty. See you there!
