Japanese Baseball Game Experience

One thing we had to do in Japan, is experience
a Japanese baseball game. As a spectator, baseball in Japan is different
– very, very different and in this video we’re going to show you a few reasons why! Good evening good evening guys. Hello hello. Today is baseball (野球) game day. It is baseball in Japan. Yeah. We’re going to be watching a Japanese Baseball
Game. And it is our first time ever to do that. We are watching one of the one of two local
Osaka teams. They are called the Hanshin Tigers (阪神タイガース). And we just arrived at Koshien stadium (阪神甲子園球場). As you can see I’ve already picked up a new
hat. Fancy. I’m loving it and it was so easy to get our
tickets. We bought them online this morning. Yes. We just had to go on and scan in with the
barcode. Yeah. At a machine they spitted them out. They gave us real tickets. Yeah. And it was like I think they were it was 2,500
Yen so probably like $23 US dollars or something like that. So super affordable and we’ve also arrived
with appetites so I think our first order of business is going to be to grab some food. TEAM SPIRIT If you’re going to support your team, you
have to look the part. I picked up a Hanshin Tigers hat, but there
were far more dedicated fans with really clever outfits. (Anthem playing) Woah! We’re just about to start. (Fans cheering and music playing) FOOD Next up, food. Forget popcorn and hot dogs! Japanese baseball games offer an extensive
food selection at great prices. It’s good to arrive hungry! Guys check out all of the different unique
things you can get here at a Japanese baseball game. There is an extensive menu. We’ve got sushi, we have fried noodles, we
have octopus balls. A bit unusual but very tasty. So we got some snacks for the game. Yes. We got pizza. This is teriyaki pizza guys. Oh. And over here this one was really funny looking
if I can get it open. Check out that. A hotdog pizza. Yeah. It has got a hot dog and tomatoes. Yeah. How is that pizza? It is pretty good. I’m so hungry. Wow. So tell us what have you found now? So moving on to round 2 of dessert. I have found a chocolate churros. Yes. And inside of that is an ice cream. There is whipping cream and this is uh basically
a pancake. Like a crepe. A stuffed dessert. Stuffed pancake. Wow. Only at a Japanese Baseball Game. Indeed. BEER If you want to buy beer, you wave down the
‘uriko’, which are the women who carry beer kegs on their backs. The beer at the games is surprisingly affordable
too. CHEER When it comes to Japanese baseball (野球),
something fascinating is that each player has their own unique song and the crowds will
sing and dance when they’re up to bat. (Cheering and music) PLAY Even if you’re not a baseball fan, it’s
worth attending a Japanese baseball game for the atmosphere. The game is exciting, but the crowd’s energy
steals the show. Fun fact: games can end in a tie. That baseball game was a lot of fun. If you come to Japan you definitely have to
go to a Japanese Baseball Game.
