Daiei Komoro Stadium is a baseball stadium where the BC League and Shinano Grandcellows sometimes play their home games. The baseball stadium is located in Minami jo Park, but if you drive there, you will find the location a little difficult to find, as you will have to go down from the nearest road.
Getting to the Stadium
Daiei Komoro Stadium can be reached on foot in about 20 to 30 minutes (less than 2 kilometers) after transferring from Sakudaira to the Koumi Line and arriving at Komoro Station.
However, the location is a little difficult to find without a cell phone navigation system.
The baseball stadium is located in Minamijo Park, but if you are driving there, it is a little difficult to find after entering the park from the road, and the road is narrow.
I got the impression that the parking lot is not that big.

Travel Tips & Information
Here is the basic information about Nagano as a reference for planning your trip.
For those in the Tokyo metropolitan area, the JR Nagano Shinkansen connects Tokyo to Karuizawa Station in about 1 hour and 15 minutes, and Ueda Station in about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
If you are from the Kanto area, renting a car is also an option as you will need a car to get to Nagano.
Karuizawa has an outlet mall near the station, but you will need a car to get to Kazekoshi Park, and there are no hotels near Kazekoshi Park.
Saku requires a car as well, and Ueda can be reached on foot from the station if you are just sightseeing, but if you are going to combine sightseeing with watching the games, you will need a car.
In Karuizawa, there is a premium outlet mall in front of the station, but other sightseeing spots are far from the station.
In Ueda, Ueda Castle is within walking distance from the station, so if you just want to go sightseeing, you can do it without a car.
Nagano is famous for its soba noodles. You can also enjoy buying apples at apple stands.
Karuizawa is located on the border of Gunma Prefecture, and one of the most famous restaurants in the area is Oginoya, the main restaurant of Toge no Kamameshi.
If you are driving, you can also eat at the Yokogawa Service Area on the Joshinetsu Expressway.
There is also a supermarket called Tsuruya, which has a wide selection of goods, so shopping is fun.
