How to watch Japanese games? Officially online if you can read Japanese or can use google translate you can check out: Pacific League TV if you want a paid subscription to watch live games of Pacific League teams only. They have archived games to watch dating back 4 years (numerous members have stated this service is available outside of Japan, and here's a guide on how to signup). PLTV only covers games up through the Pacific League playoffs, no Nippon Series games.
How you go about doing so depends on where you are at the moment, and how much Japanese you understand. News Links Q) Where can I find news on Japanese baseball? These are links to the sports sections of a few dedicated English websites on Japan: The Japan Times - The most well known English newspaper in Japan. Kyodo News Net - if it's not on Japan Times, try here The Japan News - Sometimes there's material not covered by others. The Mainichi - Kind of a mix of Japan and International sports. The Asahi Shimbun - Not a whole lot of material, but they do go in depth for what they post. News on Japan - Not a lot of material, but occasionally some random stuff not posted anywhere else.
