Tokyo ON #016: Songs of the Swallows

Maction Planet fans will know that Mac, Founder of Maction Planet, is one of the most famous non-Japanese Tokyo Yakult Swallows fans. A regular at almost every home game and many away adventures, Mac has been watching the Swallows for 11 years through thick and thin… mainly thin.

One of the elements of the Baseball Experience which keeps Mac and his fellow fans coming back is the music – whether its the Tokyo Ondo, the Swallows’ world-famous home run song, the players’ walk-out music, or the crowds chanting different tunes for each at-bat.

Mac has persuaded Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong that a baseball episode was a must, and Tokyo’s Musical Maestro has obliged. Get your umbrellas ready, grab a beer from a beer girl, and Kutabare Yomiuri!

Maction Planet runs Tokyo Baseball Tours throughout the Japan Baseball season. Guest have repeatedly told us that a visit to Jingu Stadium on a Maction Planet Baseball Experience is one of the true highlights of a trip to The World’s Greatest Metropolis. You will not just be watching the game – you will be part of the Swallows community. We even provide all the gear  – cheering batons, shirts, caps and mini umbrellas – required to make you look and sound the part of a true fan! When the Swallows are not at home, we have taken guests to home games of the Yomiuri Giants, Yokohama Baystars, Seibu Lions or Chiba Lotte Marines. We also run Tokyo College Baseball Tours, which in some ways is even more of an experience than the professional game!


Maction Planet runs Tokyo Music Tours, which we brand “Maction Planet Radio Tours”, introducing people to the varied and diverse range of music in The World’s Greatest Metropolis.
