Tokyo Dome City
The centerpiece of the complex is the Tokyo Dome. As well as being the home stadium of the Yomiuri Giants baseball team, the Dome—which can seat up to 55,000 people—regularly hosts touring pop stars and musicians. Catching a baseball game here provides unique insight into Japan’s sports culture.
The complex’ amusement park is known as Tokyo Dome City Attractions and has several rollercoasters—including its signature Thunder Dolphin, which reaches a top speed of 81 miles (130 kilometers) an hour—and a Ferris Wheel. The park can get busy, especially during school holidays, so book your admission ticket in advance in order to save time waiting on the day.

When to Get There
If you want to catch a baseball game, check the Tokyo Dome schedule online and book tickets in advance. Opening hours for Tokyo Dome City Attractions vary throughout the year, but the theme park is generally open from morning through evening.
Though not technically part of Tokyo Dome City, Koishikawa Korakuen is just a short walk away. The landscaped garden dates back to the early Edo Period and combines stones, ponds, trees, and manmade hills to replicate landscapes synonymous with Japan and China. Regardless of the time of year, the garden serves as a tranquil escape from the city.
