The Rakuten Seimei Park Miyagi (, Rakuten Seimei Park Miyagi) (official name: Miyagi Baseball Stadium) is a stadium in Sendai, Japan. It is primarily used for baseball as the home field of the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles.[1] It opened in 1950. In order to modernize the facility for the Golden Eagles' first season (2005), seating was reduced from approximately 28,600 to about 20,000, as more-spacious seating was installed. For the 2006 season, about 3,000 seats (including private boxes along the first-base side) were added, increasing capacity to about 23,000.

From January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2010, the stadium's official name was the Kleenex Stadium Miyagi (?, Kurinekkusu Sutajiamu Miyagi), and abbreviated as K-Sta Miyagi (K?). The stadium was also formerly known as Fullcast Stadium Miyagi (?, Furukyasuto Sutajiamu Miyagi) between 2005 and 2007.

Unlike most stadiums, the home team uses the dugout along the third base line. Each team's bullpen is located beneath the stands behind the dugout areas, out of view of the spectators in the stadium; however, curtained windows outside allow passerby to watch the pitchers warming up.

Concession stands are located outside the stadium, and on the second and third levels in the area behind home plate.

The stadium has hosted two NPB All-Star games in 2007 and 2011.
