Ageo City Gymnasium is one of the venues where the Saitama Ageo Medics, a member of the V-League volleyball team, play their matches.
The gymnasium is about 2 kilometers from Ageo Station, so it takes less than 30 minutes to walk there.
Getting to the Stadium
For access by train, it is about 2 kilometers from JR Ageo Station on the Takasaki Line, so if you are going on foot, it should take about 20 to 30 minutes.
Ageo Station has a west exit and an east exit.
The west exit is the exit for the Ageo Civic Gymnasium.
The landmark of the west exit is the Ito-Yokado in front of the station.
If you see the Yokado when you exit, you are exiting on the Ageo Civic Gymnasium side.
Access by bus is also possible.
Please note that the number of buses is limited depending on the time of day.
The Gymnasium has 743 seats permanently installed, and is a venue where additional seats can be added to the court depending on the event.

What to bring
Compared to countries such as the U.S., events in Japan are relatively free in terms of what you can bring in, and there are very few venues where you cannot bring in a backpack.
As for drinks, please note that there are some events where you cannot bring in cans or bottles.
Most Japanese events will allow re-entry, but some events will not allow re-entry. Please make sure to check the event you will be attending.
