The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum of Japanese baseball was founded in 1959. Originally located in adjacent to Korakuen Stadium, in 1988 it was moved to inside the Tokyo Dome. The Hall of Fame was created to honor those who have made outstanding contributions to the development of baseball in Japan. The museum also houses baseball memorablia. As of 2014, there are 184 members of the Hall of Fame.

The Hall is open on Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 AM to 6 PM from March to September and 10 AM to 5 PM from October to February. It is closed from December 29 through January 1.
