[Ogasayama Sports Park Ecopa Stadium (Ecopa Sports Museum)]

A huge park with a museum that's a must-see for soccer fans

Ecopa Stadium at Ogasayama Sports Park is getting ready to host the Rugby World Cup in 2019. Aside from sports, the park has facilities for concerts and large-scale events. The place has been the site of much laughter, excitement, and unforgettable moments. Located on the first floor of the stadium is the Ecopa Sports Museum, where jerseys and balls used by players in J. League and the Japanese national soccer team are on display. (The museum may be closed due to events.) Guided tours of the stadium are scheduled to resume after renovations are completed in spring 2019. Participants in the tour can see parts of the stadium that are usually restricted to players and staff, like the locker rooms and the VIP area in the stands.
