    Hiroshima is only known abroad for its history but here in Japan, its fame goes well beyond that. Among other things, Hiroshima is one of Japan's top baseball cities. Their pro team is called the Carps. They're the only team in Japan that is owned and supported by the citizens so the fans are quite avid and loyal both locally and outside the city. When the Carps are doing well, the fans can be just as exciting to watch as the game itself! I was lucky to see a game in which the Carps pulled ahead to win it (against Yakult).

    Mazda Zoom! Zoom! Stadium is the name of the stadium where the Carps play. It's a nice, new stadium and the name comes from the Mazda car manufacturer which is based in Hiroshima.

    Tickets sell for as low as 1800 yen but if you want better seats, the price obviously goes up!
