Experience the power of baseball in Japan at a local batting center
Japan loves baseball! Next to sumo, baseball is one of Japan’s biggest sports. Batting centers are very common throughout the country, and Asakusa is no exception. Baseball exemplifies the Western world’s influence on Japan, and the proliferation of Japanese talent in the MLB is a great example of positive cultural interaction between Japan and the Western world. Put on a batting helmet and step up to the plate—the language of sport eclipses all cultural and national borders.
