Omiya Park Baseball Stadium

Omiya Park Baseball Stadium was the site of the finals of the Saitama Prefecture High School Baseball Tournament, and has been the birthplace of many dramas.
The stadium has been renovated, and for a while it was used as Seibu Stadium, but I think there are many fans who say that this is the best stadium for high school baseball in Saitama.
It is also the stadium where the Seibu Lions play their official games during the season.

Getting to the Stadium

If you are coming from far away, the basic way to get there is to get off at JR Omiya Station and walk there.
Omiya Station is the gate station for access from Tokyo or Kanagawa using the Takasaki, Utsunomiya (including Shonan Line), Keihin Tohoku, and Saikyo Lines.
Areas north of Gunma and Saitama can also be reached by the Takasaki Line, and from the Utsunomiya area by the Utsunomiya Line. The Shinkansen also stops here.

This is the largest station in Saitama Prefecture.
So, first of all, just pay attention to the exits.
For the stadium, the east exit is the way out.
After that, you can use your cell phone's navigation system to get to the stadium.
