We delivered retractable seats and a host of other advanced equipment for Tokyo Dome in 1988. Since then we have handled moving systems for domed baseball stadiums and other stadiums in many places in Japan.
Our moving systems change the shapes of domes and stadiums to fit different purposes of use for large spaces, from baseball, soccer, and track and field events to performances and conventions of various types.

How to operate the retractable seats

Slide moving system (Tokyo Dome)

The 12,669 retractable seats at Tokyo Dome can adjust the space into a venue for baseball, soccer, and other events. The seats can be stored to expand the field.
