The Yokohama Stadium, which is also known by the nickname ”Hamasuta,” is the home ground of the Yokohama DeNA Baystars, which is a professional baseball team in the Japanese Central League. It opened in 1978 as the first multipurpose stadium in Japan and celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2008. The stadium introduced at an early stage an artificial field turf that was good for reducing the number of errors. It has been making an effort to improve facilities so that the audience can enjoy watching games more. One of such efforts is that the infield net is lowered so that the audiences can watch and sense a game that is realer. The stadium is also used for sporting events, not to mention professional baseball games and concerts, and is known as the beloved stadium of the local people. There is a shop where you can find official merchandise and character goods of the Yokohama DeNA Baystars within the stadium. It is a two-minute walk from the JR Negishi Line Kannai Station South Exit.
