To Buy Baseball tickets, please do TWO things first:

1. Understand how it works by reading How It Works.

2. Scroll through this entire page below the schedule to fully see its contents. Click (or tap) on the home team of the date you want to start the ordering process.

The Tokyo area has five teams highlighted in blue below. The Kyoto area has three teams highlighted in tan. For tips on stadiums and teams, read Choosing a Game.

Special Requests

Due to the high volume of e-mail I'm getting daily, and not having nearly enough time to get through them all (each one takes 15 minutes on average to answer properly due to all of the research), I'm not able to take in that many special requests right now. I'm sorry. We're adjusting to be able to handle the higher work load.

If you have an order in and don't hear from us, everything is going fine. When there is a problem we'll contact you.

Accommodations Updates

Do you have an update on where you'll be staying? Please let know!

One aspect that is taking way more time than it should is trying to get accommodations BEFORE game day. We've already had a number of hotels misplace tickets, one for two hours, one for two days. There is only so much I can do talking with the hotels over the phone.

If you are going to arrive on the same day as your game, you will be picking up the tickets at a nearby post office. It's the same, reliable method we use with AirBnB customers. The post offices we use have extended hours and are open on weekends and holidays. And it is much more reliable than hotels. (Granted, not as convenient.)

When telling us where you'll be staying, please let us know either the first place you will be staying once arriving in Japan or a location you'll be at for a couple of days, AT LEAST 2 days before your first game.


Due to trip cancellations or other conflicts, ticket purchases made for upcoming games are available. You pay what they paid and I can refund the original purchasers.

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 at 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 cameras and large lenses are also allowed.

Travel Bulletin for Hiroshima in May of 2023

The Hiroshima Carp will not have any games in Hiroshima from May 8th to 22nd as the world G7 Summit will be held in the city during that time. It is advised that visitors also avoid the city during that time frame.

Koshien Rain Out Notification

Some of you have found the Koshien English page while it has been raining in the Kansai area. There is a notice there that reads, "Today's game has been cancelled." That was posted there in April and hasn't been taken down. It's there when the weather is clear, but nobody checks it then. It should not be relied upon. If it's raining in the Kansai (or any) area, I'll send e-mails throughout the day to keep you up to date about the situation.

I've gotten a number of notices from people telling me that the below schedule is wrong after looking at the Giants' Schedule. The issue is that the Giants' schedule site is converting all of the game times to the browser's time zone. And I'm guessing that the makers of the site don't know this is going on. It is causing quite a bit of confusion.

All dates and times on this site are local Japan Standard Time.
