Located at Tokyo Dome City, next to Tokyo Dome, is the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame.
Opened back in 1959, 20-years later after the establishment of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame is no doubt a wonderful and must-see place for baseball fans.
The museum opens at 10:00 a.m. and closes at 6:00 from March to September and at 5:00 p.m. from October through February and the price is Y600 for adults, Y400 for students and senior citizens and Y200 for children.
The first thing you will discover is a few posters promoting NPB achievements, college baseball and as one would expect, cool Ichiro Suzuki achievements but once you pay and go down through the elevators, you will discover NPB (Nippon Professional Baseball) awesomeness!
The first thing you will see is an encased section for each NPB team and noticeable possessions by the museum.
Featuring more NPB achievements in the next room of the museum, one can find classic gear from past players. But I will get into more about the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame in Part 2.
