Visa-Free Tourism to Japan Restarting on October 11th (Updated September 23rd)

 

It's been a long three seasons with restricted tourism to Japan. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced on Thursday, September 22nd that Japan will resume the policy of not requiring a visa (for certain countries) and no limits to the number of people entering the country.

Still, I'll wait until after the new year before re-enabling orders. Until then, if you want tickets for anything, please write me at michael@japanball.com to go through the options.

2023 Season Schedule

The 2023 season schedule will be announced in December, with the game starting times released in January. If you would like to be notified of when the schedule comes out, please write me at michael@japanball.com and I'll put you on my e-mail list to be the first to know.

No Restrictions on Bags

A question I've been getting a lot lately is, "Can I bring my bag/backpack to the game?" YES! Bags and backpacks are allowed to all events in Japan. You may want to limit the size to something that will fit under the seat. The general rule is that, so long as it doesn't get in anyone's way, no problem.

On a related question, yes, DSLR camera and large lenses are also allowed.
