Hello Eighterssssssss -> Concert tickets  
I noticed that a lot of, " Hey I'm In Japan/Going to Japan so where do I get tickets? " posts popping up and I just wanted to point you guys to this great resource: http://forum.takitsuba.net/index.php/topic,309.msg2132.html#msg2132

The author lists different options on how to get concert tickets,


  • Balloting

  • Selling to the Public

  • Spare Tickets

  • Yahoo Auctions

  • Third Party Sellers

  • Scalpers



I think everyone who's planning on going to a concert or in Japan and want to go to a concert seriously need to bookmark that site as it has extreme detail on all the pros and cons to each option.

Just wanted to let you guys know~

I have used this site many many times and never had a problem.

Also, a neat trick that really does work if you have Japanese skills.
Once you get your tickets - find the name of the person in the fan club at the bottom of the ticket. Go to a 100 yen store and by a cheap hanko. Write out a letter from that fan saying something like "Do to a sudden work obligation I have given my tickets at no cost to my friend (your name). If you have any questions call me at XXXXX. "Sign" it with your hanko.
If you have a friend in Japan willing to play along give them that number, if not give them YOUR cell number but turn off your phone. So when they call, they just get a recording saying you are unavailable - which will make sense since the person is supposed to be at work.

This does work for means of ID confirmation from the fan club.

However, I have been to over 100 JE concerts and have only seen JE checking ID/Tickets a handful of times - but they will do it sometimes! Especially if too much detail has been revealed on an auction.
