Kyocera Dome Osaka

  • 楽しむ

Many Japanese baseball players are famous in foreign countries and Japanese baseball is very different from that of the USA, so it's really interesting to watch games. This stadium is near a subway station and it has a great atmosphere so I enjoy watching games here.

I went to see this building as I heard that the peculiar and elaborate design of this building was made by Hundertwasser, an Austrian architect. Just looking at its exterior would be worth visiting.
