Fodor's Review

Watch Ehime's minor-league baseball team, the Mandarin Pirates, at Botchan Stadium for an affordable taste of Japan's baseball mania. Even more fun are the high-school games: Japan is nuts for high-school baseball, so the well-attended home games can get boisterous. Next door, Japan's finest martial-arts stadium stands out like a black-roof fortress: watch or try a class in any number of arts, any time of day at the Ehime Ken-Budokan. Both are a short walk from JR Ichitsubo station.
