Last year, I went to Chiba Marine Stadium for the first time, but due to the nature of that trip I didn't really spend much time getting to know the stadium. Actually, I feel like that's been the case at most of the stadiums I've visited, because even when I have had time to wander around and take lots of photos, I didn't check out the amenities available throughout the stadium.

There are two kids rooms located on the second level around gates six and seven, though I'm not entirely sure what either of them provide. There's a ballpark stage in the same area as the museum I visited in my previous post outside of the stadium, and events seem to start about two hours before game time. Also outside the gates is the monument with the hand prints that you can see in my prior post.
