Brex Arena Utsunomiya is a gymnasium located in Utsunomiya City, Tochigi Prefecture.
It is home to the Utsunomiya Brex of the B League.
It is located about 20 minutes on foot from the east exit of JR Utsunomiya Station, making it a convenient arena to access.
Getting to the Stadium
Basically, the best way to get there from JR Utsunomiya Station is to walk. Take the east exit of Utsunomiya Station and walk.
The atmosphere in front of the station at the east exit is a little more relaxed.
There are many stores at the west exit, so if you want a quieter exit, the east exit is the way to go.
Next to the arena, there is a unique building called Tochigi Prefectural Utsunomiya Industrial Exhibition Hall "Marronnier Plaza".
This building is more unique and conspicuous than the arena.

Before your trip, we have compiled some basic information about Tochigi for your reference.
Utsunomiya is about 40 minutes from the Tokyo metropolitan area by bullet train and less than two hours by conventional train.
You can come to Utsunomiya by train if you only want to go around the station, but if you want to go to the suburban areas such as Otani Museum and Nikko, a car is more convenient.

Nikko is a tourist city, so there are many pension-type accommodations in the area. Recently, luxury hotels such as the Ritz-Carlton have been built in the area.

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.
Here is a selection of tourist spots in the Utsunomiya and Nikko areas.
One of the best things to eat in Utsunomiya is gyoza.
There are popular restaurants in and near the station, and if you can walk a bit from the station, you can also go to Masatsugu, Karan, etc.
