The is a large wooden stadium in Ōdate, Akita, in the north of Japan. The stadium covers an area of 12,915 m2. It was completed in June 1997 and is made from 25,000 Akita Cypress trees which are covered with a special double Teflon-coated membrane. This allows enough sunlight into the stadium so that during the day no artificial lights are needed. The stadium is principally used for baseball games, but thanks in part to its removable grandstands, the stadium can also be used for other sports and events.
The roof was made from 25,000 Akita Cypress trees which were aged over the course of 60 years. This wooden framework is covered with a special double Teflon-coated membrane made from translucent fluorethylene resin-coated fibreglass. This membrane is very strong and light. The stadium is location in a region of Japan that it subjected to heavy snowfall of 2to. Because of this, the dome itself also has an aerodynamic design to resist strong winds and heavy snowfall. Buildup of snow on the roof is prevented by circulating warm air between the 2 Teflon-coated membranes, this shakes off the snow and allows the stadium to be used in all weathers.

  • This is a large facility located on the outskirts of Odate City, a core city in the northern part of Akita Prefecture. It is a facility that does not go so much without the event, but there is a grand golf course in the surroundings, too and it was crowded mainly with the local people. I think that the parking lot is a facility that is easy to go widely.

  • I went with my friends family and staff. Only for kiritanpo Festival events to go. Outside the dome of wide lawns and played at running the children. Events are also very fun. If you see a ceiling dome made of wood used. Amazing!

  • Nice
  • It is heated at the time of snowfall, but there are a lot of places where water falls from the ceiling whether there is a hole in the roof whether it is an influence of condensation. If you have valuables or electronic equipment in your luggage, you need to take measures such as putting them in a plastic bag just in case. It is likely to fall from the middle even in the place where the first water droplet did not fall. I've got a blanket on my knees. There is a convenience store nearby as an access side. In addition, there is a shop in the dome, and yakisoba and onigiri are sold (i do not know every day).
