Shinkansen’s Aka-Hel train will run for visitors of Mazda Stadium.
A professional baseball night game will be held at Mazda Stadium in Hiroshima. To reduce in-bound Shinkansen’s congestion, additional Kodama 778 will run from Hiroshima to Okayama. It is operated by an eight-car set of Series N700 and all seats are free seating. Surely, Aka-hel Ticket, which is a round-trip discount ticket to Hiroshima for watching baseball games, is valid for riding this Kodama 778.
