Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
On August 27th, we held Baseball Watching Tour at Jingu Stadium!
This is the third time for us to hold this tour, and many guests joined this time as well.
The weather was not very good for a few days before the tour, so we were afraid of cancellation of the game.
However, we didn't have rain on that day!! Yey!!
It was not clearly fine weather, but thanks to it, it was not so hot and we could enjoy the game in the cool breeze♪
Thanks to the weather, we could also enjoy the special event of the day...
FIREWORKS ! !
The game was Swallows vs Giants - TOKYO CLASSIC, so the stadium was full of audience!
For most of the participants, it was their first time to see the game live in the stadium.
Two of the guests were from USA, so they were very good teachers for the beginners!
This time I noticed that there is FREE WiFi in this stadium.
I had never found it in other stadiums in Japan!
It's limited to once a day, only for 30 minutes, but it's better than nothing, isn't it?
Getting back to the game itself, it was scoreless up to the top of 8th inning (Giants' offence).
In the bottom of 8th, Swallows finally scores 2 runs and struck out Giants in 9th.
We were so happy about Swallows' victory as we're sitting on their side!
Thank you so much for joining us!!
It's drawing close to the end of 2014 season, but we're planning to hold the tour again this season.
We'll announce it as soon as we decide, so join us next time^^
