2025 Okinawa Spring Training Tour

The Way MLB Spring Training Used to Be...

February 18 - March 4, 2025

Please note: This is a sample tour description based on the 2024 itinerary. 2025 tour itineraries and descriptions will be finalized later in 2024. 

Escape the winter for baseball paradise! With its tropical beaches, rich and unique culture, delicious local cuisine, and notable military history, Okinawa is worth a visit even without baseball. But visit Okinawa in the spring, and you’ll be treated to baseball paradise: NPB Spring Training.

Just like in the U.S., Japanese Spring Training is an intimate experience. You can watch the players practicing on the backfields and get better photo and autograph opportunities than in the regular season. However, NPB Spring Training is not the tourist magnet that MLB’s Spring Training is today. Diehards and locals attend, but the crowds are relatively small. It’s like the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues used to be back in the day, when “Spring Training” was just “spring training,” a hidden gem for baseball purists!

Join us as we experience incredible cultural activities like glass blowing and crafting sweets by hand. We’ll also visit famous attractions like museums, zoos, and parks. And naturally, there will be tons of NPB baseball excitement!
