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.

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.

Giants.jp

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.
