Adastria Mito Arena is a gymnasium located in Mito City, Ibaraki Prefecture.
It is the home arena of the Ibaraki Lobots of the B League.
It was the venue where the B-League's 2020-2021 All-Star season was scheduled to be held, but it was cancelled due to the corona virus.

The nearest station is Mito Station. If you are coming from Tokyo, regular trains on the Joban Line connect Shinagawa to Mito in about 2 hours and 30 minutes, and express trains take about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The Mito Station is also served by the Suigun Line and the Oarai-Kashima Line of the Kashima Rinkai Railway.

Before your trip, we have compiled some basic information about Ibaraki for your reference.
Ibaraki Prefecture does not have a Shinkansen station, and in the case of Mito, it takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes from Ueno using the limited express Hitachi, and about 1 hour and 20 minutes using the limited express Tokiwa.
After that, it is common to come to the Mito/Hitachinaka area using expressways.
Here is a guide on how to get to the Mito/Hitachinaka area and how to get around the city.
In Mito, the Kairakuen Garden, Kodokan, and other major tourist attractions are located around Mito Station, making it possible to combine watching a game with sightseeing. Therefore, if the game is at night, you can usually arrive from Tokyo in the morning, do some sightseeing before the game, watch the game at night, and return to Tokyo. If you want to visit the Mito area the next day, we have picked up some hotels in the Mito/Hitachinaka area for you.
When it comes to sightseeing in Mito, Kairakuen comes first. Sightseeing in Mito is around the station, but it is a bit far away, and for Kairakuen, buses and rental bicycles are convenient.
If you go to the Hitachinaka area, Hitachinaka Seaside Park is a good place to visit.
Here, we have picked up some sightseeing spots in the Mito and Hitachinaka areas.
Natto is the most famous food in Mito.
Dried sweet potatoes are also a good souvenir.
