Professional Sports Teams in Yamanashi

(1)"Getting There & Around" Kofu, Minami Alps, Nirasaki

To get to the Kofu area of Yamanashi, from the Tokyo metropolitan area, take the Azusa or Kaiji limited express train from JR Shinjuku Station.
The limited express takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

(2)"Where to Stay" in Kofu, Minami Alps, Nirasaki

Kofu is a city where the downtown area seems to be a little further away from the station (about a 15-minute walk), and I feel that there are more hotels a little further away than in front of the station.
There are hotels in front of the station as well, but that seems to be the reason why there are hotels about 15 minutes away on foot.
As for the south exit, the city hall is also about a 10-minute walk from the station, so I don't think it would be too difficult to find a hotel 15 minutes away.
However, when it rains, it feels a bit far away.

(3)"What to Do & See" in Kofu, Minami Alps, Nirasaki

Shosenkyo is one of the most famous sightseeing spots in Kofu, but it takes some time to get there by bus, and if you want to go to a game and watch it at the same time, the distance is a bit of a concern. In front of Kofu Station, there is a statue of Shingen Takeda and Maizuru Castle Park, which are easy to visit even if you come to Kofu by train.
The Takeda Shrine is also within easy reach by bus.
The following is a list of sightseeing spots around Kofu Station that can be visited in combination with watching the game.
