Meiji-Jingu stadium is a part of the huge sports complex includes rugby

and soccer stadiums. It was built for Tokyo Six University League in 1926,

ten years before the first professional baseball game was played in Japan.

The stadium has been the home of the Yakult Swallows since the 1964

season, although University games are still being played there. It was

renovated in 1980, when artificial turf was installed. Now, as the oldest

ballpark in Tokyo-area, "Jingu" is considered as one of the smallest

stadiums to be used for the pro baseball. It has hosted 5 Japan Series

and 12 All-Star games in its history.
