    Yamagata Pref. Tendoushi Sannou 1-1
    Yamagata Prefectural General Sports Park is located in Tendo City, Yamagata Prefecture; it was opened in 1992 as a place for local people to participate in sporting and leisure activities, and as the venue for the 47th National Sports Festival of Japan (the “Benibana National Sports Festival”). This large Park includes an athletics stadium, a multi-purpose sports stadium, tennis courts, a baseball stadium, a soccer stadium, etc. There is also a children’s “Play Forest” with a long roller slide and lots of other play equipment, and the “Ikoi Plaza” where visitors can enjoy a relaxing stroll. The Park is used by people of all ages. The open-air swimming pool (which is only open in the summer months) has a “lazy river,” water slides, a special pool for young children, etc., and is very popular with children and families.

    モンテディオ山形の試合観戦で訪問。 スタジアムは国体用に建設したため陸上競技場の大きなトラックがあります。幅跳び用のトラックが正面スタンド側にあるのでバックスタンドの方がフィールドに近いです。 サッカー専用ではないものの、スタンドの傾斜はそこそこあるので見難いというほどではありません。 スタジアムグルメはご当地B級グルメもあり楽しめます。なお、芋煮は早い時間に売り切れるようです。

Yamagata Areas


Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
