Hi Guys!

I got a little favor to ask:

I want to visit a Yaida Hitomi concert.
Lately, I visited her homepage and took a look at the dates of her concerts. But the problem is: My japanese is not yet that good, so I can't read it. There is also no english translation of the page, as far as I know...

here's a link to see her tourdates:

I'm in Japan during July and most of the time I'm in Tokyo so I'd prefer the following dates:

- July 17th (That's a holiday in Japan)
- August 1st

I could figure out that she's giving performances in Tokyo on these two days.
But I can't read all the other important things. For example the location of the performance,
(Yeah I know, it's Tokyo...but you know... where inside of Tokyo???) time, and all that stuff like that...

My favour: Could somebody translate the info of these two dates for me? The link is given above...
And: What about ordering the tickets? How do I manage that? Maybe someone with more "J-Cocert-Experience" can help me with that...

I hope you can help me! Thx in advance! Nod

OK, I'm not experienced at all, but I can tell you that on 1st of August, the venue is Tokyo Internation Forum Hall A, Otsuka Ai has performed there three times.

As for tickets, that is the most frustuating for overseas fans I think. There are quite a few options.
You can go to Yahoo! Japan Auctions and get a "middle person" to buy the tickets, and then you can collect it from them when you go to Japan, or you can have them personally mail it to you, this is required because Yahoo! Japan does not ship out of Japan! Also, most middlemen will charge you extra money for their service, and don't forget the ticket price would also be inflated.

Here's a guide on Yahoo! Japan Auctions that also explains the use of middlemen.

However, it seems the best method to get tickets is to go to Japan and get them. Because Hitomi Yaida probably doesn't have as much selling power as someone like Ayumi Hamasaki, I think it is possible to get tickets from the actual venue or your normal ticket outlets.

But by the time you get to Japan, the "good" tickets may have already been sold, and so if you want better tickets, I strongly advise you to visit ticket reseller shops. These are shops in Shibuya and/or Harajuku where they resell tickets and concert merchandise. They are good because you can choose where you sit, and how much you want to pay etc. There's a really good tutorial on this that also tells you where the ticket reseller shops are at Ayumi Hamasaki Sekai. (An Ayu forum)

I hope I have been of help. Tongue And good luck!
