  • Japanese Baseball Stadiums

    Check this one out, It's the Seibu Dome, Home of the Seibu Lions (Former team of Daisuke Matsuzaka).:



    And then there is the Sapporo Dome, home of the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters. The field (which is in soccer formation in the picture below) is brought out of the stadium on tracks to grow and then brought inside for games. And since the turf can be brought outside, conventions and other events can happen inside too.




    And then there is the famous Tokyo Dome. Home of the Yomurui Giants, the former team of Sadaharu Oh.:


    There's also Hiroshima Municipal Stadium, which is almost directly under where the A-bomb was dropped.:

      Couldn't find a good picture of it. Man, what dreams have been accomplished there. The structure in CF was based off the Polo Grounds.

        actually look at this site. lotta domes and a lot of stadiums that remind me of kaufman. a lot of these stadiums are secondary stadiums for the teams, as a team will play some games in smaller cities as to expand their fan base outside of the major cities. they can do this because few teams are really regional, instead they are corporate sponsored and owned teams.

          The Tokyo Dome bears a very strong resemblance to Tropicana Field, with a Metrodome style roof.

            I'm personally a fan of the Osaka Dome. It kind of looks like some kind of extra terrestrial aircraft landed in downtown Osaka.

              The same folks may have designed the Sapporo Dome:

                most of the fields feel real sterile, but theres a few that they have that are kinda neat looking.

                  European and Asian soccer stadiums are universally better. There's something about baseball that leads to horrendous design.

                    I like the Osaka Dome for another reason. It proves I'm not the only stadium designer that believes in putting the luxury suites above the upper deck and not giving the shaft to the working class fans. I know I always loved Japanese culture for a reason.

                        western european for sure. more asian stadia have pitches that are surrounded by tracks and that puts the fan too far away from the pitch. the reason the UK's grounds are better is because they are a hodge podge of designs for each stand in most cases. a lot of times fans will revolt if they plan to build a new grounds, and they are for the most part very against corporate sponsorship.

                        the best football grounds in all of europe are in my opinion ibrox stadium and celtic park, the home grounds to perhaps the greatest rivalry in any sport the world over. the old firm matches in glasgow scotland between rangers and celtic. the two teams are so good that no other team in the scottish league has been able to consistantly compete int he existance of the league

                            The Seibu Dome outside. Another design from a far off galaxy.


                            Meiji-Jingu Stadium. Home of the Yakult Swallows. Opened in 1926.


                            Nagoya Dome. Home to the Chunichi Dragons.


                            Yokohama Stadium. Home of the Yokohama BayStars. Just 388 feet to centre and 308 down each line!
