Tokyo Dome was the only stadium I saw retired numbers displayed.
This is the most famous and popular team in Japan, similar to the NY Yankees in MLB.

There was an amusement park right next door to the Dome. Nice, wide, clean outside concourse lined with concession and souvenir stands.
There was a security check at this stadium.

On the columns in the stands in right field you can see some of the retired numbers posted.

Not gonna happen there.
This is just another indication of how well the 'cheerers' are in the Japanese league.
