Aka-Hel Ticket allows a round trip from a station between Okayama and Hakata to Hiroshima. Only the ticket holders of the games at Mazda Stadium can buy this ticket. Because it is good for two days, it is possible to stay one night in Hiroshima after the game and return on the next day. The departure Dates are restricted to be the days of games.
