It appears some apartment dwellers in Tokyo will soon have a great view of Yakult Swallows games at Meiji Jingu Stadium. A high-rise building is under construction right across the street from the ballpark. It’s on the road that runs from the future site of the new National Stadium to the T intersection where it meets Route 246 at Gaien-mae Metro Station.

The foundation of the new structure has about 30 stories — and it may go higher. Anyone living above about the 15th floor should be able to sit on their balcony and enjoy a look at the action directly below, whether it be a pro game with the Swallows or college baseball.
