Hinata Himuka Stadium is a baseball stadium in the Hinata Miyazaki Prefectural Sports Park in Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture.
The Giants' second team was camping there in 2021.
In recent years, official professional baseball games have been held at San Marin Stadium because San Marin Stadium is located in the same park, but before San Marin Stadium was built, official professional baseball games were also held at this stadium.
Getting to the Stadium
Miyazaki Sports Park is quite a large park.
For public transportation, the JR Nichinan Line connects Miyazaki Station to either Kibana Station or Undo Koen Station, which is the closest station to the park, and for Hinatahimuka Stadium, Undo Koen Station is the closest station. However, because the park itself is so big, it's about a kilometer to get to the stadium smoothly, and it's such a big park that you can get lost. The San Marino Stadium in the same park is also about a kilometer away from Himuka Stadium.
If you are driving, there are quite a few parking spaces in the park, but parking may be limited during events.
If you park far from the various venues, please remember where you parked as it is a large parking lot.
Normally, parking at this park is free on weekdays, but on weekends and event days, it costs 300 yen per day for a standard car, which you pay in cash when you leave.
(The system may be different during events.)
