About MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium
MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima is set ten minutes away on foot from Hiroshima station. The local baseball team, Hiroshima Toyo Carp’s games take place there day after day.
The stadium can hold up to 33,000 people. The baseball stadium is not a dome, so sometimes the games are canceled during stormy weather, but the fully natural grass of the ground and great views are things you can only get with an outdoor stadium!
The Stadium Is Tinted Red!
On game days, seats in the stadium are tinted red. This is Hiroshima Toyo Carp’s team color. Fans have great passion, and it’s normal to wear red to show support for the team. When watching the games, please be sure to put on some red.
The concourse, where you can see the games from any angle.
The concourse is made so that you can go around the stadium. As with the picture, you can see the games from any angle, so you won’t miss anything when you leave your seat to get some food. Being able to cheer from various angles is one way to enjoy yourself there.
*It’s okay to stand and watch the game if you’re out of the way of passersby, but sitting on the concourse to watch the games isn’t allowed.
The Vendors Will Come to Your Seat!
There are lots of vendors with many different products, from those carrying huge beer servers, to those selling juice, shaved ice, and even hot coffee, depending on the season.
All the vendors are full of energy, and everyone has such great smiles. It’s so nice to be able to buy food and drinks without ever leaving your seat.
Places to Eat and Drink
The concourse is lined with many restaurants, and you can enjoy a meal there as well.
Carp Udon Noodle is especially popular. The famous restaurant holds over 50 years of history, and is said to be the soul food of the stadium.
You can choose from toppings like tempura, kitsune（deep-fried tofu), and beef to make your own Carp Udon.
The Carp’s Merchandise Shop
Inside the stadium, there’s a merchandise shop you can go to even if you don’t have tickets for a game. The picture is a shop inside the concourse, but there is a shop in front of the stadium that is also open on days when no game is being held, and anyone can go in.
Only the shop inside the stadium is stocked with every type of uniform. It has a lot of Hiroshima Toyo Carp’s unique merchandises, so how about stopping by, even on a day when there are no games?
Within Walking Distance from Hiroshima Station!
Getting the game tickets may be rather difficult, but on days without the games there is a stadium tour held where you can go to parts of the stadium you normally can’t see.
