It is housed in the Tokyo Dome.
Players are eligible for the HOF 5 – 15 years after they stopped playing.
300 writers with 15+ years of experience cast a vote. Any player receiving 75% of the ballot is elected to the HOF. (Cooperstown HOF has similar rules – years may be different.)
Other individuals (writers, broadcasters, early note-able players in Japan, etc.) are elected to the HOF via a Special Committee.
There are 168 individuals in the Japanese Hall of Fame as of 2009 season (there are 292 individuals in Cooperstown).
Since I’m doing the extended tour when I go in Sept, I will be able to visit this museum.
