Rohto Stadium is a baseball stadium located in the grounds of Konnoike Sports Park.
There is also an athletic field and a gymnasium in this park, but the baseball stadium is located across the street, a short distance from the athletic field.
There is a youth hostel nearby.
The stadium has hosted a total of five official games of the Pacific League in the past, in 1956 and 1958.
The name of the arena was changed from Naraden Stadium to Rohto Stadium in April 2021.
Getting to the Stadium
JR Kyoto Station to JR Nara Station
About 1 hour to 1 hour and 20 minutes
If you are coming from a distant place such as the Kanto region, you will probably use the Shinkansen. If you are coming from far away, such as the Kanto region, you will probably use the Shinkansen bullet train, which will take you to Kyoto Station as a base, or from Kyoto Station to the Nara area.
The JR Nara Line connects Kyoto Station and Nara Station.
It takes about an hour, but it is easy to get there without changing trains.
JR Nara Station to Rohto Field
Konoike Sports Park, where the Arena is located, is about 2.5 kilometers away from Nara Station, so it may be a little difficult to walk there.
From JR Nara Station, the Nara Bus connects the station to the stadium, so it is convenient to take the bus.
You can also rent bicycles to go around the venue and Todaiji Temple as a set.
