Nanyo Citizen Gymnasium is the gymnasium that hosts home games for the Yamagata Wyvans of the B-League.
Getting to the Stadium
The nearest station to the gymnasium is Nanyo Shiyakusho Station, which is a 30-minute walk from the station.
The train that runs through Nanyo Shiyakusho Station is the Yamagata Railway Flower Nagai Line, which runs about once an hour.
You can get to the last station, Akayu, and take the Shinkansen or the Yamagata Line, but for night games, it is unlikely that you will be able to make it in time for the last train, so basically, you should try to access the venue by car.
For parking information, we recommend you check the team's official website.
