    Meijo Park located north of Nagoya Castle has a running course 1,300 meters in one circuit. You can easily set the pace because there is a distance marker in every 100 meter point. Meijo Park is also a start for longer running circuits for two, three or four kilometers in length.

    Track Field of Tsuruma Park is often used for sporting events. When I visited Tsuruma Park on September 2, 2012, a Lacrosse match organized by JLA(Japan Lacrosse Association) was going on. Lacrosse, similar to rugby but uses stick with net, is a minor sport in Japan played by 25,000 people. Tsuruma Park Track Field is often picked as the venue for Lacrosse matches in Japan.

    Atsuta Jingu Park

    Info Board of the Park

    Atsuta Jingu Park close to Atsuta Shrine is a nice place to stroll and watch local people play baseball, tennis and other activities. It is also known as the place where Danpusan Tomb Mound, the longest keyhole shaped Kofun in Aichi Prefecture,150 meters in length, is located. You cannot get inside the mound but you can walk around the ancient tomb which takes about 6 to 8 minutes. It's really huge. There is also a kiddie park but when I went there in July it was closed to make some repair work.

    Nagoya Grampas Soccer Club!

    by cvilla007 Written Apr 20, 2005

    The Nagoya Grampas are the local proessional soccer (football) club. Soccer is becoming a really popular spectator sport in Japan. I think it will overtake baseball soon as the most popular sport. The Grampas play in Toyota Stadium. It's probably the most fantastic-looking stadium I've seen from afar. If you go to Toyota you won't miss it. It's located along a river park. I'm not sure how good the Grampas are, but the stadium draws a lot of fans.

    Nagoya Dome

    by Logan575 Written Jun 25, 2003

    The dome is a pretty impressive indoor covered stadium. One weekend, on a lark, we took the subway out and found that even though the Dragons were not playing, there was a Jr. Sumo wrestling for childern being held. We were able to walk down on the field and check it out.
