I used to only wear game-style baseball hats, thinking that the floppy hats were “dad hats.” Well, now that has changed. I always bring a hat like this when traveling so that I can cram it in my luggage without worrying about it losing shape. I like this vintage-style Hanshin Tigers hat because of the classic Tiger graphic and the “rising sun” in the background, but more importantly, it says “Hanshin Tigers” on it, which is often a conversation-starter for curious American baseball fans!
Hiroshima’s Mazda ZOOM ZOOM Stadium, home of the Carp, is a sea of red on game day and home to arguably the best fans in all of Nippon Professional Baseball. Make sure that you fit in with this beautiful travel-friendly cap!
This American Needle dad hat is super high quality and features the official Hiroshima Carp “Carp Boy” logo patch on the front, and a stylish and functional buckle closure on the back making it a good fit for everyone. When visiting Hiroshima, you’ll notice that you see this logo just about everywhere, including the manhole covers of the city’s sewer system. Dad hats like this one are perfect for travel because unlike structured caps, they can be packed without losing their shape.
