Yaohan Strawberry Park Baseball Field

Yaohan Strawberry Park Baseball Field (Kanuma Athletic Park Baseball Stadium) is a baseball stadium located on the grounds of Kanuma Athletic Park in Kanuma City, Tochigi Prefecture.
It is one of the stadiums where the Tochigi Golden Braves of the BC League play their official games.

Getting to the Stadium

This stadium is located in the mountains.
Depending on what time of day the Tochigi Golden Braves play their games at this stadium, I would say that access to the stadium, at least for night games, is not possible except by car.

By train, the nearest station is Shin-Kanuma Station on the Tobu Nikko Line.
It is about 5 kilometers to the stadium, but it is not a flat 5 kilometers because it is in the mountains. There is no option but to walk a little.

There is a bus service connecting JR Kanuma Station, Tobu Nikko Line Shin-Kanuma Station, and this sports park, so please check the timetable and use it.

About the Stadium

Behind the back net will be 3,500 infield seats.
The rest of the stadium is all grass, so you can imagine about 10,000 people here.
The stadium is located in a forest in the mountains.
In summer, you can watch the game in the lush green trees.

Location 3164-1 Asahigaoka, Kanuma-shi, Tochigi 322-0345, Japan
Capacity: 3,500 infield seats, 10,000 people on the outfield lawn
Opened: April 1976
