Attend A Twins Game

Your Minnesota Twins appear to be heating up just in time for summer. Luckily, Target Field offers the perfect setting to watch one of America’s (and Japan’s) favorite pastimes, and it is only a short drive from Moto-i.

The Twins are currently running away with the AL Central. Almost ten games ahead of the second-place Cleveland Indians, the Twins currently boast a home record with fewer than 10 losses. If you are a baseball fan and you find yourself in Minneapolis this summer, help give the Twins the home-field advantage their performance deserves!

Many people in Japan have found that two of their favorite things, baseball and sake, pair well together. Why don’t you give it a shot for yourself at Moto-i? Whether you come join us after the game ends or before the game begins, Moto-i will be there to help you make the best of your trip to Target Field. Moto-i also offers an excellent selection of Japanese dishes, such as our Classic Ramen, to go with your sake and baseball experience!
