The Dome can changes its shape of play-field as baseball game and football game. That’s why Sapporo Dome is the home ground for two different sports’ teams. As baseball game, the play field is covered with artificial turf. As football game, huge natural grass ground, 120m height x 85m width and 8,500tons weight, is slid into the inner field from outside by hovering 7.5cm up from the ground. It moves 4 meters per minute. While there is no football game, the natural grass field is outside of the dome in order to be exposed to the sun. The Dome Tour is available, when there is no event in the dome.
