Saiden Chemical Arena (Saitama City General Gymnasium)

Saitama Broncos (basketball) and T.T. Saitama (table tennis) play their home games at the Saidenkyo Arena.
This arena is located in the same area as the Saitama City Sakura Ward Office and Library.

Getting to the Stadium

By train, it is about 3 kilometers from the station at Nakaurawa Station on the Saikyo Line, which makes it somewhat difficult to get there on foot.
Therefore, the bus would be the best choice.
For example, if you take the Saikyo Line to Nakaurawa Station, the Kokusai Kogyo Bus connects the station to Sakura Ward Office (where the arena is located). Depending on the time of day, there is one bus every 20 minutes or so, so if this is the case, using the bus is an option.

About Stadium

The arena seats about 3,000 people in the stands, and for basketball and other sports, seats are provided to fill the court and the stands, so the arena can accommodate up to 4,000 people with about 1,000 additional seats.

Location 4-3-1 Dojo, Sakura-ku, Saitama-shi, Saitama 338-0835
Capacity: 2,954 (+966 seats depending on the event)

Travel Tips & Information

Here is the basic information about Saitama as a reference for planning your trip.

1. "Getting there & Around" Saitama (Urawa, Omiya), Kawaguchi, Ageo

Kawaguchi City will be a neighboring city to Tokyo, and Saitama City will also have good access to Tokyo via the Keihin Tohoku Line and Saikyo Line.
As for this area, it is basically convenient to travel by train since the train service is good.
Ageo City is only accessible by the Takasaki Line, and each venue is far from the station. For venues in Ageo, a car is also an option.

2. "Where to Stay" in Saitama (Urawa, Omiya), Kawaguchi, Ageo

Omiya Station is one of the largest stations in Saitama Prefecture, and the Shinkansen also stops there.
There are several hotels in Omiya Station, including around the station.
Since there are no high-class hotels in Saitama Prefecture, it is an advantage to stay there if you are basically looking for a hotel with the premise of staying at a business hotel and it is cheaper than in Tokyo.
