Yokkaichi City Kasumigaura Third Baseball Stadium is located in Kasumigaura Green Park in Yokkaichi City, Mie Prefecture.
It will be the main stadium for the softball games of the 2021 National Athletic Meet, with black soil in the infield and long-pile artificial grass in the outfield.
The coastal street where the baseball stadium is located is also a night view spot of the Yokkaichi industrial complex.
Getting to the Stadium
If you are planning to stay overnight to watch the game, Nagoya will be the base station for most people. For this reason, here is a guide on how to get there from Nagoya.
JR Tomidahama Station (Nearest station to the venue)
Take the Kansai Main Line from JR Nagoya Station and arrive at Tomidahama Station in about 40 minutes. From Kintetsu Yokkaichi Station, it will take about 10 minutes to walk to the park, but from there to each venue, you will have to walk because the park itself is shaped like a longitudinal section.
On a good day, this is not a problem, but on a not-so-good day, walking may be somewhat difficult.

Travel Tips & Information
Here is the basic information about Mie as a reference for planning your trip.
Kuwana, Yokkaichi, and Suzuka areas are all easily accessible from Nagoya.
Kuwana is about 30 minutes from Nagoya by conventional train, Yokkaichi is about 40 minutes from Nagoya by conventional train, and Shirako Station, the nearest station to the Suzuka Circuit, is about 50 minutes from Nagoya.
Kuwana, Yokkaichi, and Suzuka areas are close enough that you can consider Nagoya as a base for watching the games. As for the Suzuka Circuit, it will be quite difficult to stay at the nearest train station or near the circuit during the event, so the key is to stay at a hotel with good access in the surrounding area.
In Suzuka, you can watch and play at the Suzuka Circuit. In Yokkaichi, you can enjoy the night view of the industrial complex.
In Kuwana, there is Nagashima Spa Land, which attracts 15 million visitors a year.
It is the third largest amusement park in Japan, after Disneyland and Universal Studios.
Speaking of Mie Prefecture, "Matsusaka Beef" becomes famous.
Along with Omi beef and Kobe beef, it is said to be one of the three most famous Japanese cattle.
It is a must-eat local delicacy.
One of Mie's most popular souvenirs is Akafuku. There is also a main store near Ise Jingu Shrine where you can eat Akafuku.
