Wow feeling. Goosebumps all the time. Urawa Reds' fans are awesome, chanting from the start until the end. Watched the crucial last game of the season where Urawa Reds tied Yokohama Marinos. Reds won the season title after this game.

I was there for the All Japan High School Tournament finals on Jan 10th and it was a really great experience in a world class stadium. As its the winter it does get quite windy so rug out if you are going in the winter.

Beautiful stadium, and one of Japan's best. It has style, great views and good facilities. It scores highly in most areas as a place to watch football, so it's easier to list the minus points (none of which detract too much from the overall experience)....More
