Saitama Stadium 2002 was built for the 2002 World Cup and later became the home stadium of the Urawa Red Diamonds. The stadium is also the venue for international matches of the Japanese national team.
The nearest station is Urawa Misono Station on Saitama Kosoku Tetsudo Line.
The stations to transfer to the Saitama Kosoku Tetsudo Line are:
- Higashi Kawaguchi Station (JR Musashino Line)
- Akabane Iwabuchi Station (Namboku Line)
After getting off at Urawa Misono Station, it takes about 20 minutes to walk to the stadium.
When there is a J-League game, shuttle buses are available from Urawa Station and Higashi-Urawa Station.

Travel Tips & Information
Here is the basic information about Saitama as a reference for planning your trip.
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.
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.
The Railway Museum is one of the most famous tourist spots in this area.
Take the New Shuttle from Omiya Station, get off at Tetsudo Museum Station, and it's just a short walk away.
There is no such thing as a national-level local gourmet, but there are several popular restaurants in each city.
Here, I would like to introduce some restaurants in Saitama (Urawa, Omiya), Kawaguchi, and Ageo.
