The Kinohana Dome is an indoor practice facility in the Hinata Miyazaki Prefectural Comprehensive Sports Park in Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture.
This venue is a wooden dome.
There are several wooden domes in Japan, the largest being the Odate Jukai Dome in Akita, the second largest being the Izumo Dome in Shimane, and the third largest being the Konohana Dome.
Getting to the Stadium
Miyazaki Sports Park is quite a large park.
The JR Nichinan Line connects Miyazaki Station to either Kibana Station or Undo-Koen Station, which is the closest station to the park, but even if you get off at Undo-Koen Station, you will still have to walk about 2 kilometers to get to Sun Marine Stadium Miyazaki.
In the case of San Marin Stadium, you can also use Kihana Station, but it's not as close as you might think, as it's about 1.5 kilometers one way from the station to the park.
If there is a shuttle bus service for official professional baseball games or camps, it would be smoother to use the shuttle bus.
If you are driving, there are quite a few parking spaces in the park, but parking is likely to 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.)
About the Stadium
Miyazaki Prefectural Comprehensive Sports Park is quite a large park, but the Kinohana Dome is the only one that is clearly visible from anywhere, so you should not be able to mistake its direction. It is the image of walking towards the white dome.
