If you want to combine watching a game in Utsunomiya with sightseeing, I recommend the Otani Museum.
The museum is a huge underground space, but it is not a museum.
The museum is about 10 kilometers from Utsunomiya Station, so if you have a car, you can get there in about 30 minutes.
Nikko has become a nationally known tourist spot.
In the case of Nikko, the area is not as close as the distance because of the heavy traffic during the high season. Please be careful when you go.
