The Fukuoka Yafuoku! Dome is a baseball field, located in Chūō-ku, Fukuoka, Japan. Built in 1993, the stadium was originally named Fukuoka Dome and can accommodate 38,561 spectators. It was Japan’s first stadium with a retractable roof. In 2005, Yahoo! JAPAN, one of SoftBank’s subsidiaries, acquired the stadium’s naming rights, and thus renamed it Fukuoka Yahoo! JAPAN Dome or abbreviated as Yahoo Dome. In January 2013, it was renamed to Fukuoka Yafuoku! Dome (Yafuoku means Yahoo! Auctions in Japan.
Fukuoka Dome is the home stadium of Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks and, together with Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk Hotel and Hawks Town Mall, is part of the Hawks Town entertainment complex. It is located near Momochi Beach, about 15 minutes walk from Tojinmachi subway station.

In 2006, the stadium received an upgrade to its mono-color main scoreboard “Hawks Vision.” Sharing the same nickname as its predecessor and measured at 9.9840 m (32.76 ft) high and 52.992 m (173.86 ft) wide, it was one of the largest high-definition electronic scoreboards at the time, equivalent to a 2,123-inch wide-screen display. In 2010, with further addition of two 5.7 m (120.65 ft) x 33 m (108.27 ft) displays, the stadium boasted the largest total viewing area of HD display in all baseball stadia (total area 905.2sqm or 9,743.49sqft).

The Fukuoka Dome has hosted one game in each Major League Baseball Japan All-Star Series since its creation, including the final game of the 2006 series, where Japan was swept for the first time in the history of the event.

Review Hospitality Package & Sport Ticket

Hospitality Package

• Name package: Coca-Cola
• Seats in a separate area at the pitch right where the action is

Hospitality Entrance

In fact there is no real hospitality entrance as we know it in Europe. Although there is a separate entrance for Coca-Cola seat holders this is not much special in terms of hospitality.


Expect a good selection of food and drinks that can be found in a baseball stadium although don’t expect much wines. There is a good selection of food vendors with ample choice. No real hospitality section here but availability of food and drinks for all.

Business lounge

We can be short about the business lounge, there is none.


This is where it gets really great. The Coca-Cola padded seats are literally a footstep away from the pitch right in a separate guearded section of the dome. You will get gloves and helmet to protect yourself from any outliers. We feel that this is a must do when visiting a baseball stadium as the vibrant atmosphere comes real close.

Good to know

Sportz Guru was here for the opening game of the season and it was spectacular! Please take a moment of your time to have a stroll around the dome en look at all the Japanese fans as well as the Hard Rock Café that is located in front of the dome. A superb atmosphere and surroundings that is worth a visit.
