Photographer Munehiro Saito talks about the appeal of Jingu Stadium and the thrill of watching a baseball game



A circle of friends connected by goo touch! The “FIST BUMP” corner of the radio program “GRAND MARQUEE” features people who live and enjoy Tokyo in a relay format.

On August 16, photographer Munehiro Saito will join us to talk about the appeal of Jingu Stadium and the joys of watching baseball games at the stadium.

The charm of Jingu Stadium is “serenity”

Celeina (MC): Today, I would like to welcome photographer Munehiro Saito. Please give him my best regards.

Takano (MC): Nice to meet you.

Celeina: Mr. Saito, you are wearing a Swallows uniform.

Saito:This is Tetsuto Yamada’s uniform when he was still number 23.

Celeina: So it is a rare uniform.

Saito:I wonder if it is rare.

Celeina: Mr. Saito, you are from Yamagata, so I would like to ask you how you became a Swallows fan.

Saito: I used to watch Swallows games during Nomura’s time as manager, and when I moved to Tokyo and visited Jingu Stadium, I was attracted by the atmosphere. I have been a fan ever since.

Celeina: Is that because it is Jingu Stadium?

Saito: Yes, I think it was because of Jingu Stadium.

Takano: I guess Jingu Stadium has its own unique charm?

Saito:Yes, Jingu Stadium is very calm. It’s hard to find a ballpark in the heart of the city that is so peaceful and has such a good mood.

Takano: There is a bit of greenery and the sky is open.
