How to Get Event Ticket

The most convenient way to get event tickets is at Event Ticket Centers in urban areas. The most popular one is "Ticket Saison" operated by Seibu, a company which owns some department stores and event facilities. It has sales counters located all around the city, however, staff don't speak much English.

"Ticket Pia" is another popular outlet for purchasing tickets. These ticket counters are often located in department stores or other locations where young people tend to gather (such as in Shibuya or Shinjuku). You can get all kinds of tickets for events such as classical and popular concerts, dramas, cinemas, Noh, Kabuki, art exhibitions, and expos. You can visit ticket centers directly or you can make reservations by phone, there may be a problem with communication. So it would help to go with a Japanese friend or have a call for you.

Your hotel may also be able to help you to get tickets, but be aware that foreign acts and big sporting events are usually sold out well in advance. Other tickets for places such as Disneyland, museums and aquariums can be purchased on the day you go.

You can get tickets at the ticket counter of each facility. Movie theater tickets and some exhibition tickets are usually bought this way, but it will be a little more expensive than buying in advance.
