Nango Stadium is a baseball stadium in Nango Central Park in Nango City, Miyazaki Prefecture.
It is the spring training ground for the Seibu Lions, and the nearest station, Nango Station, has been decorated to the Lions' specifications.
Getting to the Stadium
As for public transportation, there is the Nichinan Line from Miyazaki Station, but it is less frequent. You can get there without changing trains, or you can change trains at Aburatsu Station (the camp site of the Hiroshima Carp), which seems to be the general pattern.
Whether you transfer or not, it will take about 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours to get to Nango from Miyazaki.
The stadium is about a 20-minute walk from Nango Station.
If you are driving, there is a parking lot next to the stadium, but you probably won't be able to park your car here during the camp.
Nango Central Park has the Kuroshio Dome, tennis courts, and multi-purpose plaza in addition to Nango Stadium (indoor practice field), and if you can park your car in the park, it will be in a parking lot away from the stadium. However, this park has quite a few high and low points. Please note that the stadium is at a higher level and the plaza is at a lower level. Please check the team's website for information on temporary parking.
