The Japanese pro baseball season starts March 29. The Tokyo Dome Hotel, located right next to the Tokyo Dome, home ground of the Yomiuri Giants, is offering a special accommodation plan for which it has started accepting reservations.

The hotel will provide a package that includes a one-night stay with tickets to seating in the infield section for Giants games played from March 29 to June 23 at Tokyo Dome.

The plan also includes breakfast at the hotel.

Reservations for the plan for games from July 5 to Sept. 23 will be accepted from May 8.

The plan is available from ¥12,000 per person for triple occupancy in a triple room with B-class seats; the price varies depending on the grade of seats and rooms. Prices include tax and a service charge.

Armani’s winter seafood dinner

To enjoy rich flavors from the sea this winter, Armani / Ristorante on the 10th floor of the Armani Ginza Tower is holding a seafood tasting promotion, offering a special dinner featuring winter seafood from Feb. 15 through 28.

The special Italian dinner, called Il Mare d’Inverno (The Winter Sea), is a course boasting a variety of winter seafoods prepared in many styles. The course starts with a glass of spumante and includes special dishes such as fried scampi with kadaif pasta served with garbanzo mayonnaise and bruschetta sauce, and risotto with salted cod.

While savoring each dish through to the dessert and espresso, customers can take in the Armani restaurant’s luxurious atmosphere, as the building is one of the landmarks of the decadent Ginza district of Tokyo.

The dinner, including the sommelier-selected spumante, is available at ¥15,000 for two, including tax, but is subject to a 10 percent service charge.

Armani / Ristorante is a 1-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Ginza Station. For more information and reservations, call (03) 6274-7005 or visit www.armani-ristorante.jp .
