Hot Spring and Sauna Facilities (4th floor)
As one of the facilities that embody the "symbol of the diverse spectator experiences," the hot spring and sauna on the fourth floor will be the world's first hot spring and sauna built inside a ballpark. Fans can watch the game at the "Totonoe Terrace Seats" facing the field (reservations required), and the indoor rest terrace will have a bar counter for light meals and drinks, including our original beer. The sauna facility will be supervised by a professional sauna builder and sauna master, "Totonoe Oyakata.
