Edion Stadium Hiroshima is the home of the J League team, Sanfrecce Hiroshima. In the 2012 season, Sanfrecce Hiroshima won the championship for the first time on their home turf. The stadium has also hosted international events such as the 1992 AFC Asian Cup and the 1994 Asian Games.
Getting to the Stadium
Edion Stadium Hiroshima is located in the northwestern part of Hiroshima City and is conveniently accessible from Hiroshima City using the Astram Line(AGT).
On game days, the roads around the stadium are very congested, so if you are coming from downtown Hiroshima, we recommend using the Astram Line.
From Hondori Station in Kamiyacho, take the 37-minute Astram to "Koiki- Koen-Mae Station," which is about a 10-minute walk to Edion Stadium Hiroshima. From the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park area, use Hondori Station, and from the Hiroshima Castle area, use Kencho-mae Station or Johoku Station. The fare from Hondori Station and Kencho-mae Station is 490 yen each way, and 450 yen from Johoku Station. On the day of a Sanfrecce Hiroshima game, a "Sanfrecce Cheering Ticket" that allows unlimited rides for 630 yen for adults and 320 yen for children is available from four hours before kickoff. You can see the stadium from the Astram train, so you won't get lost from Koiki-Koenmae Station.
Bus Route #1
From the bus stop at the south exit of Hiroshima Station, two direct buses to Edion Stadium are available by reservation only on weekends and national holiday game days. The bus fare is 1,600 yen for adults and 800 yen for children.

About the Stadium
Edion Stadium Hiroshima is surrounded by mountains and the weather is changeable. The arched roof of the "Big Arch" only covers part of the main stand side, so you might want to pack rain gear and sunscreen in the summer just in case.
