Hey everyone!
Just keeping you informed.....
I'm planning on going to the Gunma Diamond Pegasus baseball game this Sunday in Shibukawa.

It starts at 1pm and usually lasts around 3 hours.

If you plan to go to the Heso Matsuri on Saturday and then plan to stay over in Shibukawa this would be the perfect way to spend your Sunday!

Let me know if you need a ride/help finding the place.
