    How to purchased Barrier Free/ Accessible tickets to聽 Meiji Jingu Stadium –聽 Source : Japanball.com

    Starting from the 5th of the month before the game you want to attend, call the Meiji Jingu Stadium Wheelchair Reservation number:

     

    03-3404-8999

     

    Yes, you will need to speak Japanese.

     

    The information you need to tell them is:

    路聽 Date and opponent of game (knowing the opponent acts as a kind of check that you have looked into the game)

    路聽 Which side you want to sit on, Swallows or visiting team side

    路聽 Looking at the zoomed in seating chart of the wheelchair spaces (http://www.jingu-stadium.com/ticket/entrance_fee/wheelchair.html), which slot number would you like? (#1 and #2 are apparently kind of difficult to see the whole field)

    路聽 Number of wheelchairs (plus maximum of one attendant聽 per chair) and if either are children (9th grade or lower)

    路聽 Name of the person in the wheelchair or helper who will pick up the tickets

    路聽 Contact cell phone number to contact on day of game (if necessary)

    路聽 Fax number (to send confirmation and slip to turn in at gate)

    路聽 If going by car, license number, car make and color are needed

    路聽 There is a discount for Fan Club members

    Once the reservation is made, it cannot be cancelled. If you choose not to go, you will be sent a bill.

     

    I suspect that if you don’t have a fax they will send the image via e-mail. (We have a fax specifically because many ball clubs require it for communication.)

     

    Payment is made at the window near Gate 7 on the day of the game. Bring the fax and show ID that you are the person named on the fax. You then enter the stadium at Game 1, which is up the right hand side of the stadium.

     

    The price ranges from 楼1,300 to 楼2,100 per person depending on the game. (The Swallows have four tiers of pricing depending on the opponent and day of the week. Fan Club members get 楼300 to 楼500 off.)

     

    If you have more than one person joining the person in the wheelchair, the seating directly behind the wheelchair space is the “Swallows Side Outfield General Admission” or “Visitors Side Outfield General Admission” area. Cheering goods (jerseys, caps, etc.) for the opposing team are prohibited. For weeknight games, you can usually purchase General Admission tickets at the ballpark that night. That hasn’t always been the case this year as the Swallows are in the thick of qualifying for the post season. The teams also often sell more General Admission tickets than seats, so if you show up late, there is a chance you’ll be standing the whole game.

     

    Procedures tend to change year to year, so this is really only valid for the 2018 season.
