The Fukuoka Softbank Hawks are officially the Best Team on Japan !
Being a Limey, I admittedly don’t know much about baseball – but what a season to learn ! I’m still not too sure of the protocol or all the rules, but I had a great time following the Hawks through this incredible season.
The Fukuoka Yahoo Dome is the home of the baseball team, SoftBank Hawks and is a Must-See when in the city of Hakata…
Although the Dome offers Japan ‘s only adjustable roof (it can open and close) – it does have a problem of high walls around the field which move fans a little far from the action.
The Dome itself is a major entertainment hub by the beach, that has a resort hotel, shopping centre and live concert venue – you can spend the whole day there without getting bored !!
But the biggest entertainment value at the Dome is the fans . The Fukuoka fans are among the most energetic and passionate and being among them is a blast – especially when the SoftBank Hawks win. Check out this video
Every time the Hawks win they blow up and let off white balloons and there is a fireworks display at the end of every winning game ! And during the game, the energy is fantastic !!
