Can't really travel around with work, but would be cool to meet up at Concert or events! Even if you're not part of the FC there are still events like the upcoming Tsubaki mini lives on the upcoming Sat, and both a Yanagawa (13th) and Juice Juice talk event  (7th) at the Hello Shop. Since Angerme is releasing something new I'd except some events from them as well. Although currently only handshakes are announced, they should be doing a variety of things and mini lives around the release period. Also, there is the H!P Countdown at the end of the year (lost the election last year but won this time so will be there from afternoon until the very end, yay~), and although I guess you won't be here at the beginning of January, that would be H!P paradise as they have loooots of Hello Cons and good seats are relatively cheap. Then there's the Morning individual handshakes which you can probably buy handshake tickets for on site if you're early. Keep an eye on the website event page if you want to  attend as much as possible.

 

I took a look at the viagogo site and the tickets are undesignated and general sales ones...you can count on them being terrible seats. Try out

https://ticketcamp.n...ts/?ref=suggest

or otherwise Yahoo Auctions, if you want to buy the best seats at the lowest prices since the tickets on those sites are directly being sold by end customers. Yokohama Ticket has physical locations and you'll see which tickets they have at which shop on their website in front of the ticket (you can currently check it out with the Momusu Pacifico Yokohama concert, Up Front sends the tickets out ~2 weeks before the concert date),but they are more expensive and mostly have bad seats. Of course you won't require an address for Yokohama Ticket so that is the advantage. I am going to the Shizuoka Concert on the 25th, their Budoukan and JJ's Budoukan.

Hey guys, few months ago I bought a ticket to a Morning Musume ticket on viagogo. And if anyone knows me, they know that Momusu have played a huge part in helping me throughout life.

It's the night before the concert (I'm now in Japan) and honestly, I'm feeling nervous?! I've read conflicting reports about ticket reselling and ID checks at concerts?

Used a broken google translator app, and it looks like the guy who sold the ticket to me was a fanclub member- which I know is frowned upon? I think this is what's getting me all panicky.

Some questions if I may: - The event is at the Pacifico Yokohama, has anyone ever had any experience with ticket checks there before? - Has anyone had any experience with attending a Morning Musume/H!P concert and checks? Obviously I'm a foreigner, and my name won't match the ticket?
Or; - Is it a case of simply ripping the stub off and letting you in? What are the odds of the ticket being checked as such.
(Would anyone who has the time and doesn't mind, let me send them a photo to double check the translation?)

I'm just a 26 year old girl who's dreamt of seeing them perform for the longest time, I should be excited right now, but I have that feeling of dread?

Any answers are appreciated ^

It's a regular tour concert I suppose and not a FC (members only) event, such as birthday events, right?

For regular concerts I never had my ticket checked for name, even been to Pacifico Yokohama too and same thing. Only in FC events they do check them thoroughly.

So while I'm not someone to ever assure anything, i'd say you have nothing to worry about.

 

Just checked the site and tomorrow they have a tour concert so yeah, should be ok.

I have been to plenty of concerts including ones at Yokohama and they do not check whatsoever, relax. Reselling is expected and most people sell the FC ones because they're the better ones. They will rip your ticket, hand it to you and that's all there is to it.

Fanclub EVENTS are a different story, since at Birthday events they will always check intensively.

Appreciated guys, thanks for that! ^

Did the H!P shop yesterday, have handshake tickets for tomorrow, and cafe tickets for the Monday. Are there anymore events you'd recommend me doing whilst over here? ^

Kinda depends on which H!P groups you like. If you like Juice  then you can buy tickets for their World Tour talk event on the 7th or Yanamin's talk event on the 13th. They've been available since Monday though so the 2nd event on each day might be sold out. Also, Juice is doing an entire live at the Meikai university school festival tomorrow if you want to see them perform, I have a spare ticket if you want it. Will probably end up going there early to walk around the booths and just check out what the students have set up so could give it whenever. Morning is doing individual handshakes as well on certain weekends, other than that the things I mentioned in the first post on this page. Tsubaki doing a release event 3x on Sunday seems particularly fun and it's a lot cheaper to see them perform than a live.

 

Non-member related things would be visiting the Hello Tribe cafe opposite the H!P show and singing Karaoke, and just singing H!P sings the entire time, lol.

If you like Tsunku in general go to his Idol-maid cafe, Akihabara Backstage Pass.. since they are open every day it's cool if you have no other event XD (Live stages during the week after 6.30PM, on weekend all day)

Appreciated, thanks for the reply, and kind offers!

Ended up going to watch Sayu over at Waseda University and had my handshakes with Daaishi/Haachin/Yoko in the evening, so been pretty rushed.

Didn't know Tsunku had a maid cafe?! Definitely interested in that ^

The maid café is really cosy and nice!
I was there my last trip, and they are really sweet.
But hard to get to and get in, and more

^It's not THAT hard XD

True there's a lot you can learn to make your stay even better but you can still enjoy as a newbie (I know I did XD).

Location info is here: https://backst.jp/access/

About 1 block and a half away from Akihabara Station... you just look for the elevator in that building to the 6th floor and you'll find one of the girls at the reception where you'll choose your seat.

I became kind of a pro there, been going for the last year and a half pretty often (while I lived in Tokyo), so I'm open to any questions about it XD

There is usually available place and almost no waiting time, unless you happen to go on a very busy day (like some special event or some of the most popular girl's birthdays).

Me and my friend managed to go there during a birthday, and I guess it was a popular girl, because it was queue :P

^That's probably it LOL. There's not always queue XD I know that it was full on the birthday day of the girl in my profile pic (who's one of the most popular there), so if you'd happen to go that day, you'd surely find a queue.
