Fukuoka SoftBank HAWKS Hello Seats
The Fukuoka SoftBank HAWKS have taken "Dash! (奪Sh)" as their 2019 slogan, and aiming to take the NPB Pacific League championship and to remain at number one in Japan for the third year running. At their home ground, Fukuoka Yahuoku! Dome, new seats called "Hello Seats," targeted at foreign visitors, were introduced in March! There are a maximum number of 100 seats available, located in the outfield bleachers, to the left of the back screen, so that you really get the feeling that you are there at the game. Also, there are staff available who can speak English, Korean, and Chinese, so that you can really get hyped up cheering!

Tickets (2,000 yen per ticket) can be bought at "Klook," Asia's biggest active reservation site. Jet balloons, with user instructions in multiple languages, are also available! Let's cross linguistic boundaries, unite with the players and the fans, and make it all the way to "Number One in Japan"! Also, three new Dome tours are starting that are aimed at foreign visitors. These are the "OHAYOU Course," the "OYASUMI Course," and the "Full Dome Course With A Baseball Experience" (* Each service requires a fee).
