Urawa Komaba Stadium in Saitama City

5 responses

I need to go from Shinjuku Station to the Urawa Komaba Stadium in Saitama City on August 31st to watch 2 soccer games for the Women's U20 world cup. The first game is at 4:00 PM, but I'd like to get to the stadium at 3:00 PM, and the second game ends at 9:30 PM and I'd like to make it back to Shinjuku that night.

What is the itinerary you recommend?
I'm assuming the closest train station to the stadium is Urawa Station, is that true?
It looks like the stadium is about 2 km from the train station and it would take time around 20 minutes to walk. What time is the last train from Urawa Station?

Hi there!

Here is a suggested itinerary from Urawa to Shinjuku around 11PM giving you a good chance to get out of the stadium and to the station after the game ends.

Yes, the closest station to Urawa Komaba stadium is Urawa. The walk should take around 25mins at a normal pace, possibly more if it's very busy after the game. The last train from Urawa to Shinjuku leaves 00:07 from Urawa so be sure to make it to the station by this time at the latest :)

Here's a map with the overall route to Shinjuku:
