Our spring touring features spring training and countryside games, plus the Major League Baseball Opening Series in Tokyo.
- Five options from which to choose -
Major League Baseball opens its 2019 Season in Japan at the iconic Tokyo Dome, home of Japan’s dominating team, the Tokyo Yomiuri Giants.
The Oakland A’s will host the Seattle Mariners for the two MLB season-opening games in the Tokyo Dome.
14 games. Five cities. Spring Training. Countryside Games. The MLB Opening Series. Our JapanBall Main Tour has it all. Lots of games in Tokyo, plus we hop on bullet trains for games in Nagoya, Osaka, Shizuoka, and Yokohama. All with time remaining for sightseeing and activities.
With our MLB Japan Opener you attend the two MLB Opening Games, plus four exhibition games in which the A’s and Mariners play select Japan teams. You also attend a Yakult Swallows game at Jingu Stadium in central Tokyo, where Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and other all-stars played in 1934.
Too little time for the entire six-game Opening Series? Here’s an abbreviated version. You attend only the two Major League games between the A’s and Mariners, plus the Japanese game with the Yakult Swallows at nearby Jingu Stadium.
Come early for more of Japan than just Tokyo, where the MLB Opening Series takes place. This early arrival option features pre-season and countryside games, along with a full compliment of sightseeing and activities especially for JapanBall guests.
We also have some action after the MLB Opening Series with our MLB Post-Tour option. Off we go for games at the big leagues parks in Nagoya and Osaka before returning to Tokyo to take in a game with the Tokyo Giants, Japan’s favorite team.
