The museum opened on 15th of March, 2019.

really no toilet?

The museum has no toilet. Go to toilet before you enter the museum ;)

 

But there are toilets inside the building. 

More serious about poo?

This poo museum is rather a fun park than a venue to study about poo academically. If you are more into poo study, we recommend you to visit National Poo Museum in UK. The UK museum is currently moving to a new venue and expects to open in summer in 2019!

世界のニュース-Anna Sorokin アンナ・ソロキンとは誰だったのか?バーニー・マードフ以来のNY大詐欺事件

Booking.com

アンナ・ソロキンとは誰だったのか?バーニー・マードフ以来のNY大詐欺事件

事件の概要

 

600百億USDほどを盗んだとされるバーニー・マードフ事件に、金額は及ばないが、ニューヨークで起こった案件として、騒ぎになりそうな事案が発生している。

 

それは、アンナ・ソロキン(Anna Sorokin 28歳)の起こした詐欺事件である。

 

ソロキン氏は、四年間にわたり、億万長者の子孫アンナ・デルベイ(Anna Delvey)を名乗り数百万USDの基金があると詐称、ニューヨークのお金持ちからお金を借り、プライベートジェットを借りたり、高級ホテル滞在していたようです。

 

ある月には、ホテルや衣服などで、5万5千USDも使っていたといいます。

正体は?

公判でわかったことは、ソロキン氏は無一文であったことです。

 

ソロキン氏は、1991年(ソビエト時代)ロシアに二人姉妹の一人として生まれました。父親はトラック運転手(現在は空調の仕事をしているといいます)、母親は小さなコンビニ店舗オーナー(現在は主婦)でした。

16歳のとき、ドイツのコロンへ家族で移住、2011年に現地の高校を卒業しています。その後、イギリス留学(退学)を経験し、ドイツにてPRの仕事のインターンをし、フランスでPurpleというファッション誌のインターンにつきました。

 

そこからNYへ渡り、今回の大騒動をおこすことになります。

その後

彼女は20万USD詐取したことを認め、4年から最長12年の懲役が言い渡されました。2017年10月から拘束されているので、刑期に加算されるようです。

 

刑期は、服役中の態度によって変わります。

そしてドラマ化

そして、この事件について、プロデューサーShonda Rhimesがドラマ化の権利を獲得して、現在、Netflixにてドラマ化が進んでいます。

世界のニュース-死後にタトゥーを保存するがビジネス流行

Booking.com

死後にタトゥーを保存するがビジネス流行

思い出としてのイレズミ

漫画ブラックジャックで、こんなエピソードがあった。

 

難病に冒されたある組の大親分。ブラックジャックは、親分の全身に入った刺青を傷つけずに手術しなければならない。その手術後の話として、その刺青は大学に標本として飾ってあると。。

 

いま海外ではタトゥー、刺青の保存がにわかに人気になっている。日本では上記のブラックジャックの例にもれず、まだ、ファッションとして位置づけが広くゆき渡ってはいませんが、西洋では、簡単にタトゥーを入れます。

 

ある国の友人は、タトゥーショップに行き、ガチャガチャで柄を決めました。こんなにも簡単に刺青をいれるんだ、と驚きました。

 

米国には現在、450万人がタトゥーを入れているという統計があります。

 

 

これだけ浸透している刺青は、思い出でもあります。刺青をしている多くの友人は、それぞれの刺青の思い出を教えてくれます。ある時は決意の為、ある時は達成した証として、入れたりしています。

Save my ink forever社

 

米国オハイオ州にあるSave My Ink Foreverという会社は、死者の刺青の保存を行っています。現在は米国、英国、カナダで事業展開を行っているとのこと。

 

研究を重ねエンバーミングに代わる、長年保存のできる方法を見つけ出したとのこと。処理期間は約3ヶ月だそうです。

 

死後、数時間以内に処理をしなければなりませんので、あらかじめ同社と連絡をとっておく必要があります。

 

日本でも最近はファッションで刺青をしている人を見るようになりました。

 

これから日本でも流行るかもしれません?!

 

故人のイレズミが飾ってある家に出くわすかもしれません。欧米では、遺灰をリビングに飾ってることは珍しくありません。

ロバート・デ・ニーロ、ベン・スティラーのコメディー映画「Meet the Parents」でも、デ・ニーロ扮するジャックのお母さんの遺灰がリビングに飾ってあるシーンが出てきます。イレズミが飾ってあるのも相違はそれほど?ないのではと思います。

 

ちなみに刺青で一番痛いのは、首だそうです。本当でしょうか?

Reiwa era starts 1st May 2019 in Japan

Reiwa era has started in Japan

New era starting in Japan as emperor changes

Are you in Japan right now?

 

You may be surprised to see so much coverage on TV, news paper etc. about the emperor and the era title changes. Nothing negative so do not worry.

 

In Japan, there is a special Japanese title for the era tagged to the emperor. We had Taisho when Taisho emperor was in the position. That time, we counted the year Taisho year 1, 2 and so.

 

Till yesterday we used "Heisei". The Heisen emperor retired yesterday and the new emperor took the position from today.

 

Heisen year ended and Reiwa year starts today 1st of May, 2019.

Rei wa is the new era in Japan All rights reserved onegai kaeru
Rei wa is the new era in Japan All rights reserved onegai kaeru

It is announced that "Rei wa / 令和" is the new era in Japan.

 

Under the constitution, the emperor confirmed the new era title and the government announced it. 

 

The Heisei period started on 8th of January 1989, the day after the Emperor Hirohito passed away. This time, our current emperor will retire at the end of April.

First to retire?

 

It has been a big media coverage about the retirement of emperors. But is this so special in Japan history? The answer is "no".

 

There have been many cases where the then emperor retired to give the title. Esp. when there was/were misfortunes such as natural disasters, the emperors gave thrones to others to change the luck.

Where is it from? What it means?

"Reiwa" is based on the oldest collection of poems in Japan called "Manyoshu / 万葉集" (sometime after AD 759 during the Nara period).

 

This is the first time where the era title is taken from a Japanese old book. 

 

The poem 32nd poem about the scenery such as plum in the early spring.

 

Rei means "positive, organized".

Wa means "harmonized".

Reiwa sales campaign on

Now we see many shops doing sales campaign. It is a special occasion where the era changed and the 10 day long holiday is on in Japan.

 

It is time to go shopping!

 

For example, this kimono shop also offering 20% OFF for its authentic Japanese kimono!

Janne Da Arc, the Japanese visual kei band, stops

Janne Da Arc, the Japanese visual kei band, stops

Booking.com

Today it is announced that "Rei wa / 令和" is the new era in Japan. The Heisei era will come to the end on 30th of April, 2019.

 

 

Then one famous band from 90s announced that the band will cease to exist as of 30th of March, 2019.

 

Yasu, the vocalist, has been on leave because of his throat problem through 2009 and 2016.

 

Why this timing? At this moment, there is seemingly a big reason for this.

 

A case with Ka-yu, the bassist.

 

We can not tell if this is true or not but so far we see this link where some people trying to sue Ka-yu for harassing some women. These women say that Ka-yu threatened them and stole their money.

 

If this is the case, the justice must be done.

 

Many fans hope this is not true...

What do you think about the news?

Are you a fan of this band?

海外進出の3つの方法

弊社には日々、海外進出の相談が舞い込みます。

 

海外市場調査展示会越境ECソルーション、法人登記など、さまざまなサービスを用意しております。

 

具体的に市場進出の場合、大きくは3つのシナリオがございます。

提携

海外進出の場合、体力(資力など)が抑えられるのは、同業者を探し、提携をすることになります。ただ、提携先選びに時間がかかるのと、提携後に独自路線を探る場合、提携先との関係が複雑になる場合があります。特に、JVなどで、強固な提携をする場合は、どのようにエグジットするかを取り決めておく必要があります。

 

<<弊社では、提携先の調査、選定、現地法人登記のサービスを提供しています。>>

ゼロから構築

提携先や買収先を探す手間が省けること、御社のコントロールが効果的にもてる強みがある一方、独資で、行おうとする事業がその国でできるのか、許認可は受けられるのかなど入念な調査が必要になります。

 

<<弊社では海外市場調査を行っております。>>

M&A

現地で一気にシェアを握る、許認可など取得する手間を避けるなどもっとも有効な方法といえます。特に、ホテルなど開業から出来るだけ早い運営が求められる分野では、人気の手法です。ただし、売りに出ている企業を探すのは基本的には不可能に近いと感じています。

 

今回は、弊社のM&Aサービスについてのご紹介と、現在、売りに出ている企業の情報をお知らせします。

What to Do in Sendai, Miyagi and the Local Tour Guide!

Booking.com

What to do In Sendai, Miyagi and The local Tour guide!

Ever been to Sendai city, Miyagi?

 

We would like to introduce why you must be there with the local help Chie who also offers The Cat island tour ( Tashirojima island )!

Where is Sendai?

What you must see in Sendai, Miyagi

The city has mountain views ocean views, historical and mysterious  sites  and city lights.

 

 

Akiu area surrounded by mountains has a powerful and sacred fall, valleys and hot springs.

Zuihoden Mausoleum is located in a very quiet forest and shining with its elaborate architecture.

 

Visit Osaki Hachiman Shrine known as an energy spot bringing victory.

 

Rinnoj temple is a zen temple Date Samurai family loved. So photogenic.

 

See Sendai Daikannon,100 meter Deity of  mercy standing  in a quiet residential area. Quite unique.

 

Near Sendai, there is one of the three most beautiful views in Japan, Matushima, where Albert Einstein was so impressed (the other two being Amano Hashidate in Kyoto and Itsukushima, Horoshima).

 

There are 260 small islands dotted in the bay. You may see the beauty through cruising and from the sea temple which was founded by a cool Samurai Masamune nicknamed one-eye dragon.

What to eat and Where to eat in Sendai, Miyagi?

You can have fresh seafood, fresh vegetables, unique tasty local foods like GYUTAN, beef tongue, or ZUNDA, mashed green beans, sushi, Seri Nabe Japanese parsley hot dish and creative Ramen noodles.

 

Onegai kaeru team loved the beef tongue. The tongue has quite different texture from the beef we normally eat.

 

Here are the recommendation as below from the tour guide, Chie.

Gyutan restaurant

There are many beef tongue restaurants in Sendai. If you have no time, you can try the 3rd floor of JR Sendai station. It has "Gyutan Dori or beef tongue street". Since it is the famous delicacy from Sendai, many people line up. Be ready to wait (alternatively, you can try to avoid the peak times of lunch and dinner time ). 

Tasuke

Tasuke is coined as the restaurant which started serving beef tongue for the first time. Many locals love this place.

Official website

Rikyu

Probably most famous and also is the biggest chain restaurant. The taste is great.

Official website

Coffee

Mamebou

Mamebou is the cute cafe by the river. You can taste nice coffee in nice porcelain cups.

Official website

Wufushin

Great ramen! 40 mins from Sendai station.

Official website

How to get around in Sendai

If you want to pick great sites inside Sendai with reasonable price, use the loople bus.

 

The two day pass costs 2670JPY.

 

Sendai is a cozy city. Taxi is also useful. One site to another, it will cost about 1000JPY.

 

There are two subway lines in the city. If the subway can take you to your destination, then, you should definitely take it but it is quite a comfortable ride.

what you need to be careful visiting Sendai

It’s much colder than Tokyo.  If you move to Sendai from Tokyo, wear one more clothes.

No Help for Trapped Two Boars in Japan?

No Help for Trapped Two Boars in Japan?

Source: wikipedia
Source: wikipedia

UPDATE

[28th Oct, 2018]

Here is the update. These two boars which were trapped were rescued by the city office. 

It has been still controversial because of the background as below.  

Background

Currently two boars fell by mistake into a reservoir (at this moment dry) in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka. There seems no way out. 

 

It seems quite possible to rescue them technically but the local regulation on "wild animal protection" which forbids human to intervene the life of wild animals. 

 

On 12 Oct, 2018 the local person asked the government to help them out but the request was rejected. The government says we just need to "look at" them.

 

We wonder if the government can not think the reservoir is basically what the human made which already interfered the life of animals and it may be reasonable to get them out from the artificial situation back to the nature? 

 

We can " understand " that the governments in Japan are careful and less risk taking. We are sure that the officials in the government themselves want to help the wild pigs.

 

Of course, boars are considered to be "pests" these days as they stroll into the residential areas and eat the crops and harvest damaging the farmers' business. This is we think the biggest reason why the government does not move a finger.

If the government helps them they will most likely face the big criticism from the locals who suffer from "boar issues".

Imagine if you live on your farming business and the wild boars eat all of your products and you suffer badly financially, you will hate the government if they spend the tax money (as you also paid) to help these pests which just by mistake fell into some hole.

 

Beside this, with not so much budget in the city government, it is hard to use it to save animals, when people are so ailing these days with not much social security. The rescue work can be also dangerous and tiring.

 

We think they need a good excuse to be out of their box!

What do you think we can do?

Now two boars fell and wait to die. Something must be done to help!! We also need to come up with some plan where humans and boars live together in peace...

 

Any good idea to help these animals?

All Cats on Cat Island Sterilized - Aoshima island

All Cats on Cat Island Sterilized - Aoshima island

All Cats on Cat Island Sterilized - Aoshima island in Ehime

Early last month (Sept, 2018) one of the twitter accounts of a local person on the island who takes many cat photos started talking about the sterilization of the cats. This way, we learnt about this.

 

All cats on Aoshima island are sterilized according to major media. The reason is that there are too few people on the island who can feed the cats.

 

There is a group which takes care of the cats on the island. The group is called "Aoshima Neko wo Mimamoru kai / a group which looks after Aoshima cats" which asked the Ozu city to support the all cat sterlization project in 2017. The city decided to put the project cost around 4000USD (the cost for the vets to stay and travel) in the city budget.

 

The reason behind all this is that there are too few people to take care of cats on that island.

 

How serious is the situation?

 

During WWII, many people escaped to the island from the main land. The island population hit the highest 655 people in 1960. There have not been enough job so many people left the island. On 1976 the island's only one primary school was shut down.

 

Early 2000 the cat population started to grow while the human population hit then new low, 50.

 

 

Just one two years ago, you only see 15 people( 4 fishermen and the rest retirees) on the island.

 

Today there are 9 people whose average age is 75 years old and more than 200 cats.

 

The number of cat is growing yet the number of resident on the island is decreasing even more.  Therefore, the village of the island made decision to neuter all cats. 

 

It has been mixed opinion about this. Some did not want, some wanted.

How sterilization carried out

On 2nd Oct, 2018 a foundation, called Dobutsu foundation, which offers fee sterilization to animals carried out this plan on this cat island. There 20 staff came to the island and set up as many as 130 cages. Each cage had some food for cats. When the cat enters the cage, the door of the cage closes.

 

On 3rd Oct, 3 veterinarians arrived at the island and carried out the tasks. 1 min to deal with one male cat and 15 mins, one female cat.  On this day 172 cats (female 75, male 97) were treated. 

 

On 4th Oct around 06:00AM, the treated cats were released after the staff checked their conditions.

Will Aoshima be non Cat island?

source: wikipedia aoshima cats
source: wikipedia

Now all cats do not reproduce due to this operation.

 

Normally the cat lives for 16-18 years. This means that there will be no cat on the Aoshima island after 18 years or so. (The oldest cat (called Creme Puff) in this world was 38 years and 3 days based on Guinness World Records.)

 

This is only possible 1) if nobody brings any cat to the island from now and 2) if really all cats are sterilized.

 

For 1), Aoshima has been so popular with so many tourists visiting and this has quite good business potential for the city "Ozu city" and the prefecture "Ehime" the island belongs to. The cat island brings a lot of money to many businesses esp. to the cities around it. In search of a new business opportunity to the community, these governments can change the direction and tries to make the island a cat island again. Who knows the government may bring a lot cats to the island again.

 

For 2) there is no 100% perfection in anything. It is announced that all cats were sterilized but it is possible that there are some survivors from this operation. The nature always finds a way.

 

This way, we think the Aoshima will continue to be a cat island.

Where is Aoshima cat island?

Aoshima in Ehime is one famous cat island in Japan, beside Tahirojima island.

 

Cat Island in Japan becoming popular. Onegai Kaeru team sees more people online talking about cat islands and also many online/offline news paper also featuring about it. We still do not see much practical information for those who want to visit the islands.

 

Thus we decided to provide some practical info on two cat islands, how to get these islands and what the cat island local says about the visitors. Also, there are several "cat islands" in Japan, other than these two. Please refer to our latest cat island list in Japan (updated from time to time).

Cat Island Aoshima

Aoshima - Island of Cats

Aoshima island ( 青島 ), Ozu-city, Ehime, is "cat island".

 

Located 13.5 km away from Nagahama port. 

 

Due to the internet hype the island becomes one of the popular destinations for the cat lovers.

 

In 1942 there were 889 people recorded. The island has 15 people( age between 50-80 years old) and more than 100 cats. There is neither inn, restaurant nor vending machine( as of Oct, 2013).

 

Some details about this island population:

  

There is no car or even a bike so no real threat to cat and there are many abandoned houses where cats can live peacefully.

 

1976 saw the last school close on this island.

No vending machine, no inn

Before you plan anything about this cat island in Ehime, you think about this. This island has NO inn, restaurant, vending machine. You find no bike no car.   (Note: there are 2 vending machines and some guesthouses on Tashirojima island in Miyagi)

So how to get Aoshima?

For traveler's tip...

How To Get Aoshima

For Aoshima, Ehime, (35 min) boat trip 2 times a day from Nagahama Port, Ehime pref. To get Nagahama port, get off at JR Iyonagahama station and walk.  

 

There are Nagahama ports in Shiga pref and Kagoshima pref also, be careful not to confuse.

 

Here (hard to access the website) is the time table of the boat to the island in Japanese. So we put the info from the website for you in English as below:

 

Timetable for Aoshima

Season   Nagahama port dep Aoshima port arrival Aoshima port dep Nagahama port arrival
All year 1st boat 08:00 08:35 08:45 09:20
2nd boat 14:30 15:05 16:15 16:50
- - - - - -

Price of the boat trip

One way: 680JPY (Adult=12 year old or older), 340JPY (Child=6 year old or older but younger than 12 year old)

 

Round Trip: 1360JPY (Adult=12 year old or older), 680JPY (Child=6 year old or older but younger than 12 year old)

 

If you have some check-in-baggage, it costs some hundreds JPY (i.e. 120JPY per one item(bag etc.) if lighter than 10kg, 250JPY per one item(bag etc.) if heavier than 10kg but lighter than 20kg, 390 JPY per one item (bag etc.) if heavier than 20kg but lighter than 30kg )

 

Valid as of Aug, 2018( subject to possible change) 

 

After the media reported about this island, it has become hard to get the ticket. We learnt that the ticket is sometimes sold out even 3 hours before the departure.  

 

The boats may be cancelled. For details, here is the telephone number of the Port +81 893-52-2700.

Can you take a fisherman boat?

Because the official boat above is very popular there are many tourists who could not take the boat even they reached the port. There are some people who pay the fisher men to let them board their boat to travel to Aoshima.

 

The local authority warms it is NOT legal to take a fisher man's boat to reach Aoshima. You need to take the boat above.

Tips for your trip

Bring something to eat and drink, umbrella and some plastic bags to bring back the garbage at least.

 

In case of Aoshima, there is neither shop nor vending machine. It is common that the ship is canceled due to the high tide etc. from November till March( autumn and winter). Thus, you need to be very positive-minded enough not to be disappointed to find your ship is canceled after you travel all the way in the cold morning.

 

If you stay in Matsuyama, not recommended to travel from there to the port in the morning. It is 1.5hour train trip to the port from Matsuyama, considering the risk of cancellation, good to stay in some place near the port( some list of the hotel and inn here) one day before the trip to the island and stay there for a couple of days to test your luck to get the ship. 

Message from Cat Island

Many of Onegai Kaeru team friends and thousands of tourists visiting these islands. What do local say about the visitor? Some are happy but some are not happy.

 

Aoshima Island shared their message for visitors:

 

These are 5+1 rules for the visitors for Aoshima

 

1. Feed the cats only at a designated area near the "community centre". Do not give food around the dock  (where people get on and off the ship)

2. Do not hang around the dock (where people get on and off the ship) so that you do not stop other logistics. ( means... once you get off the ship, just keep moving away from the dock area!)

3. Do not enter the private area ( local people's houses) without a prior permission

4. Please take the garbage back

5. Do not feed the cats too much, or the cats get sick (we do not want that, right?). If you brought too much food for cats, you can leave it in the cat food containers in front of the community center and at the waiting room for the ship.

( 6. There is a donation box in the waiting room for the ship. Your consideration (cash!) shall be used for the cat)

 

This is where visitors are allowed to feed the cats on Aoshima island.

Summary of Yuimetal official message

On the official website of BABYMETAL, there is a message from YUIMETAL.

 

Here is the summary:

 

"I am so sorry that I was absent for a long time which has caused many problems to many people. After thinking many times I decided to leave BABYMETAL. I (YuiMetal) has not been active since I could not join Hiroshima live in December last year. Even though I had so much support from the member and staff, I had to skip the BABYMETAL World Tour 2018 in Japan in this October and I will leave the band. I feel so sorry for those who have supported BABYMETAL. I decided to leave because of my health condition and I want to pursue my dream to stand on a stage as Yui Mizuno once again. BABYMETAL will be reborn with Su-Metal and Moametal. My time in BABYMETAL has been so precious. I felt so lucky about these days I spent (as BABYMETAL). Live where we became one smiling was so happy moment. I hope to see you all as Yui Mizuno one day. Thank you for 8 years' support."

Who is BABYMETAL? WHo writes songs?

Let us recap who BABYMETAL is?

 

They are a heavy metal style girl's group from Japan. It was established in 2010. All from one Japanese idol project called Sakura Gakuin of primary and Jr. high school girls.

BABYMETAL will start the world tour called BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 on 8th of May, 2018. At the same time, their new song "Distortion" was released.

Higher Risk of Blow Fish Poisoning Alert

Fugu cooking licence differs from each prefecture. In some prefectures, you need to take lessons and tests and in some you only need lessons. This causes the knowledge level of each licensed Fugu cook differ. Today you can not use your licence from your prefecture in other. For example, if you try to get a Fugu cooking licence in Yamaguchi prefecture, you need to take lessons and then also take the tests to show you can differentiate the poison locations of each Fugu as well as your Fugu processing skill. But you try to get a licence in Okayama, you do not need to take any test. 

 

There has been a strong voice from the fugu industry to have a unified fugu cooking licence.

not only for Japan but WorldwiDe issue!

This news should not treated as a Japan only news. The blow fishes are mixing here and there all over the world.  (We also think any other plants/animals which have some poisonous parts can also have the same problem as this mixed Fugu issue. ) The world needs to be more aware of the new type of risk in our food! We still want to eat blow fish with no worry.

 

There should be a world wide system to make sure that we are not eating something lethal!

Higher Risk of Blow Fish Poisoning Alert

Is this fugu really the one as you think? Source : wikipedia

TASTy yet dangerous Fugu fish

Ever tried to eat Fugu? Fugu is a blow fish which is considered to be one of the most expensive and tasty foods in Japan.

 

We also love this fish. It looks cute and also tasty. We can not really afford this fish every day. If you go to some restaurant to eat a proper Fugu fish, it may be around 100USD or more per person.

 

The tricky part with this fish is that it has poison in its body. This poisiton is lethal. It makes more difficult to cook this fish because each type has poison in different parts of body.

Fugu cooking need licence

This is why a cook needs a special Fugu cooking licence to cook. To get the Fugu cooking licence, the cook needs to learn about the positions of the poisons of each type of Fugu and how to remove and cook. ( This also increases the cost of cooking.) 

 

After the cook took away the poisonous part(s), she/he must put them into a special garbage box with a lock so that no mistake happens. Under the current situation, we still see some people dying of the Fugu poisons (mistakes happen, you know...).

Climate change create new type fugu!

 

Today we heard of a scary news. There is higher risk of blow fish poisoning these days. This is because due to the changing climate, some blow fishes move to the area where they did not live and get mixed with the local blow fish which have always been there. This creates a mixed blow fish which has poisonous part where the cook with a licence has not learnt. The cook with a Fugu cooking licence is supposed to not cook a Fugu whose type is unknown. Yet, there seems a blow fish which looks exactly like one type of Fugu yet actually mixed and has positions in different parts! This means that there is a risk that even a licensed cook can not get rid of the poison correctly.

Best Autumn Leaves -KOYO - Locations in Japan

Great season in Japan is autumn. Agree? Source: wikipedia
Great season in Japan is autumn. Agree? Source: wikipedia

Are you visiting Japan in the autumn season e.g. late Oct, Nov, early Dec?

 

If asked which is the best season to visit Japan, we say autumn. It is because the season is not as hot as summer and not as cold as winter.

 

The spring is another great time with cherry  blossoms but some may have the pollen allergy (like us) so it may be necessary to carry tissue paper around to blow noses..

 

In autumn, there is no big allergy problem. And you see what Japanese call "Koyo / the red leaves" where many type of trees change its color to red, yellow and brown to make the beautiful scenery here and there.

 

There are many beautiful places and here we try to share with you some locations not too well known.

1. Hachimantai in Iwate

2. Senjojiki Cirque in Nagano

3. Keisokuji Temple in Shiga

4. Tsutanuma in Aomori

Red leaves reflected in the surface of the pond. You can only enjoy the view probably on the limited timings. The color of the leaves should be bright enough, the sky needs to be clear and there should not be wind to make the water surface a mirror.

 

You check the weather report well to make sure you capture the rare sight.

5. Showakinen Koen in Tokyo

6. Omocha no Okoku in Gunma

7. Senjogahara in Tochigi

8. Hitachi Kaihin Koen in Ibaragi

9. Jozankei in Hokkaido

Jozankei in Sapporo, Hokkaido

10. Shichimenso in Saga

世界一のハイテク展示会であるドイツのCeBITで、主催者側の提供してくれるブースは「基本プラン」で5626EUR以上「いいかんじプラン」で6832EUR以上「プレミアムプラン」で10166EUR以上の三つです(2017年)。これらはすべて12㎡までのブースの値段で、それ以上は値段が上がります。これらはブース(出展費用(1㎡あたり242EUR)、電気代、コーヒー紅茶のケータリング含む。ネット回線や駐車場料金は、基本プランには含まれず)の値段です。日本円で80万円から130万円ほどになります。

 

世界的なCeBITと比較するのもあれですが、タイへの渡航費の安さもあり、タイでの出展費用は半分のイメージです。

タイを代表する展示会・見本市

東南アジアの一大市場として、そして、一大生産拠点として、長らくトップに君臨するのがタイです。

 

人件費も比較的高い国でありますが、識字率もスキルも高いです。

 

市場としてのタイとして存在感が高まっている中、展示面積でも知名度でも欧州勢に並び中国の展示会が有力ですが、東南アジアではタイへの関心が高まり、現地での展示会の重要性が増しております。

 

タイ進出の試金石になるだけでなく、仕入れ先、OEM先を探す、海外進出の基本的な一歩と位置付けられています。

 

日本の展示場ですと、東京ビックサイトが最も大きく約80000㎡で、幕張メッセが約70000㎡ですので、世界ランキングでは、70位近くに位置します。

 

有楽町の東京国際フォーラムは、その最も大きな展示スペースのホールEで、5000㎡となっています。世界1位のドイツの建設の展示会・見本市のBaumaの100分の1以下となります。

 

ビッグサイトの展示会でも1日がかりで回りますが、海外の展示会の場合は、言葉が不慣れだったり、海外に来て気持ちが興奮してしまい、無駄な時間をすごしがちですので、日本のそれ以上に効率よく回ることになります。

 

タイのビジネスで気をつける基本項目のおさらいと、直接現地企業にアクセスできるタイの代表的な展示会についてみていきましょう。

タイの展示会で成功するコツ・注意すべきこと

では、タイのビジネスで気をつける基本項目のおさらいしてみましょう。

 

タイの方々も国際派も多く、外国人のタイ文化への無知に対し、寛容に振舞ってくれる方もいるでしょう。

 

また、タイの展示会で、必ず重要な場面があるとは言えませんが、頭に絶対に入れておき、適切な場で、適切に振舞えることが絶対に必要です。

タイの国王・国に敬意を

どこの国でも、その国について敬意を払うことは当たり前のことですが、特に、タイでは、タイ国王は国民にとってとても大切な存在です。国王についての否定的な話題や意見は絶対に慎んでください。

 

仏教の国です。日本より尊敬の度合いは高いように感じます。仏教の批判や、お坊さんへの不敬もダメです。

ドレスコード・年齢

タイでは、ドレスコードは、スーツが基本です。サンダル履きは展示会の入場を断られます。また、基本的に年齢制限は15歳以下は入場ができません。

 

では、サンダル会社さんはどうなるんでしょうか?気になる方は、まず、イベント主催者に問い合わせることが必要でしょう。

右手を使う

もの(名刺)などを差し出すときは、右手で差し出すよう心がけましょう。

 

また、頭は神聖なもので、足は不浄と考えられ、だれかの頭の上を通して物を渡す、足でなにかを指すなどはいけません。

間接表現を心がける

タイでもメンツは重要であり、直接的に相手を否定するような表現は慎んでください。否定しなければならない場合も、間接的にしましょう。日本人としては、これは得意な分野ともいえます。

タイの電圧

タイの電圧は230V(50Hz)で日本の100Vとは異なります。日本で利用するプラグ型(タイプA)がよく使われますが、それ以外のプラグもあります。

 

電化製品の見本など、変圧器とタイの向けの変換プラグを持参するよう、ご注意ください。

その他

共産圏ではありませんが、新興国として、中国で展示会をする場合の注意事項が参考になりますので、ご参照ください。

Why Ticket Re-seller Always Get Concert ticket in Japan?

Why Ticket Re-seller Always Get Concert ticket in Japan?

Why so hard for you to buy ticket in Japan? how reseller get ticket??

It is hard to win the ticket in Japan. Some hard-to-get tickets are called "platinum" ticket.

 

Many re-sellers get the tickets and put on the resale market for 200 - 700% or even higher price of the original price. Platinum tickets are categorized for the ticket on the market at more or less from 500%- 700% or higher range of the original price. It is simply crazy.

 

There are many concerts in April hard to get! All right reserved Onegai kaeru
There are many concerts in April hard to get! All right reserved Onegai kaeru

How RE-SELLER get tickets?

Well, how do the resellers get the tickets? The reseller never tells you. It is a secret of them.

Yet, what we are aware of is that the reseller for sure is the fanclub member (to be able to apply for a special deal) and the reseller does it as a "profession".

 

By the "profession", we mean that the reseller hires many other people. The reseller organizes its own people to be so many fanclubs and let them apply. 

It is not strange that one reseller has 10-20 memberships for one fanclub. This simply means 10-20 times as probable to win the ticket. 

 

For many famous bands/singers, even a normal person (who is not a reseller) has 2-3 memberships. So they increase the chance of winning. If you have one single fanclub membership, still the chance is quite small for big concerts of big celebrity.

 

Some customers of ours are not even the member of the fanclub. Then the winning chance shall be small for the normal way (well our customers via our service win a lot for some reasons. But we think that it is not that we help them but it is only a matter of luck of the custmers). 

 

This is why you can not get the ticket easily. To be honest, if you are not the fanclub member, your chance is basically quite low.  Most of the good tickets are gone for the fanclub members before you can apply. [This is why you need to be a fanclub member!]

 

How could you win the war against the reseller who has 10 or more fanclub memberships to the same singer, if you do not even have one single fanclub membership.

 

 

This is why you need to join the fanclub in the first place with our proxy service. 

online Reseller face penality in Japan?

In 2018 May, the major ticket resale platform Ticket Camp was shut down. One of these companies inflated the ticket price.

 

The Japanese government announced to enact a new law on ticket reselling. The government is mainly worried about the resale of the Olympic ticket for 2020 Tokyo games.

 

It will be "some" good countermeasure for the reseller problem in Japan. The penalty shall be 1 year prison sentence or 1mil JPY or less. For details, you can find here.

Not Fanclub member but need ticket?

Many ask us to help getting concert ticket without fanclub membership. Our recommendation is that if you are not a member of your favorite one, BE MEMBER NOW.

 

There are only goodies becoming a member. There are more and more ID check etc. in Japan for the resale ticket and you have a risk of being rejected at the concert gate. We do not wish you take this risk. You should buy the ticket in a proper way.

Contact us!

We always ask our customers to be fast to contact us. We can not deal with a super urgent case like..." we need you to go to apply physically at some venue for this ticket and the deadline is in 10 hours ". 

 

Yes, we make impossible possible but the cost shall be quite high.

 

Ideally contact us 2 week - 1 month before the deadline at least.

What is Sumachike by ePlus, tixeebox/ Smartphone Ticket system in Japan?

What is Sumachike by ePlus, tixeebox/ Smartphone Ticket system in Japan?

There are many concerts in April hard to get! All right reserved Onegai kaeru
There are many concerts in April hard to get! All right reserved Onegai kaeru

What is Sumachike by ePlus, tixeebox/ Smartphone Ticket system in Japan?

Recently we see the rapid increase of request for smartphone ticket in Japan.

traditional ticket system and resale prob

" Traditionally in Japan" you apply to win the ticket by telephone or website or a letter, and if you win, you pay online/offline and get the physical paper ticket with seat number printed.

 

This has increased the resale market. Many resalers joined the fanclub as huge group and apply to win the lottery. Then they sell the tickets at extremely high price. 

 

This has been big headache for the event organizers and the business related to the concert.

Sumachike and tixeebox are born

To tackle down the resale problem, The ticket sale platform ePlus released Sumachike and Live styles released tixeebox. 

Here is how it works

1. you apply (chusen - lottery) only with the smartphone which must be a Japanese phone with the valid tel. Japanese number. The application page is a normal website but you can only view and press certain buttons on the smartphone and you register your tel. no. For this, you need a Japanese phone with the valid number.

 

2. you get the result on your phone. In fact you can also check on your PC. 

 

3. Once you win the ticket,you can download the special app to your phone. 

 

4. On the concert day, you get some SMS message with a QR code to your phone. 

Note: All this time you shall not know the seat location. 

You use this QR code to enter the venue and this is only the moment when you know the seat location. 

Why?

Why there are more smartphone tickets in Japan today?

 

This measure is in place to curve down the reseller problem. 

 

This way, if one wants to resell the ticket, the person needs to give the SIM card with the smartphone contract subscription and maybe the smartphone itself with the SIM in it because even if you have a SIM card which won the ticket, there is a risk of non-compatibility with your smartphone.

 

We support

We totally support this move of industry.

 

 

If you need to do this smartphone ticket application, we can help you but you need to buy a Japanese smartphone and carrier plan.

 

We believe in transparency and mutual trust. So we are honest with you about the cost. Please be aware that this will not be so cheap. This is a lot just to apply. 

 

We physically need to send someone to a mobile phone shop to sign in to have the SIM card with the valid Japanese number.

 

In Japan, there is a penalty when we cancel the contract in a certain number of month (usually, we need to go beyond a 6 month period). This increases the cost for you.

 

This shall be the breach of contract if we also give this SIM card to a third party so we need to keep the SIM back after you use it.

 

So far this is the cost only to apply to win the ticket and you often do not win!

 

Then we need to have a smartphone which is compatible with the SIM card. Then we prepare a smartphone as well.

 

With this complicating procedure, from time to time, we need to ask for some deposits for the SIM and smartphone. 

 

We understand that this market moves to make the ticket application this complicating and super high cost, this will stop the resale people as well as with the ticket exchange place run by the official live organizer.  We see all these good moves!! 

if you want to learn the basics how to buy concert / event ticket in Japan...

We explained how to buy Concert ticket in Japan in this article. You can learn how the basic rule to get a concert ticket.

 

Basically there are two types of tickets usually in Japan.

 

1) Preorder ticket ("Senko ticket")

a. Fast come fast serve style order ("Senchaku")

b. Lottery style order ("Chusen")

AND

2) Normal ticket ("Ippan ticket")

 

A simple rule is that 2) Normal ticket is hard to get, sometimes impossible. 

Usually 1) Preorder ticket comes before the 2) Normal ticket.

 

Preorder does not mean you can definately get it. There are two types of a preorder ticket: a. Fast come fast serve style order and b. Lottery style order.

 

a. Fast come fast serve style order means you apply to buy by website, tel. etc. The faster you can reach the ticket office, the more securely you can get the ticket. The problem is that many resellers clog the ticket website and once you can reach the website to buy, the ticket is all sold out.

We supported many clients with this. It is quite tough to beat the resellers who organize the big team.  Esp. if  the order is only by telephone, you can give up already (!). 

 

b. Lottery style order means you apply by website etc. during a certain period of time. It does not matter you apply early or late, the chance of winning the right to buy does not change. To reduce the reseller's problem, we see this style more.

How to increase your chance?

Always failing to buy the ticket in Japan? Well, honestly there is no 100% guaranteed way to get a ticket. But there are some ways you can increase your chance to win the right to buy the ticket.

 

1. if the artist has a fanclub, join it. 

2. if the artist has a membership for their official website, join it.

3. if the ticket to win the right is enclosed in an item such as music CD, buy several (if allowed under the regulation of the artist) and apply several times.

4. Be a premium member of major ticket platforms such as Lawson ticket or Ticket Pia.

5. Join a free member of e-Plus

 

To be able to buy a ticket safely, "fanclub" plays an important role. Simply put, if you are a member of fanclub of the favorite band or so, you have a better access for the ticket.

 

<<Our Fanclub proxy support comes into quite useful for you>>

How ticketing works normally?

The usual process to buy ticket in Japan is the follow:

 

A. Preorder (lottery style) only for fanclub member starts. 

B. Preorder from a major ticket platform starts

and

C. Normal ticket sales start.

 

Based on our observation, there are many popular concerts which just do A.

Ticket hard to buy in Japan

Which concert is the hardest to go in Japan? There are some statistics about the amount of resale ticket circulated in Japan. This implies the demand is high for such a concert.

 

1) Arashi

2) Tohoshinki (Korean band)

3) SMAP (separated in 2017)

4) EXILE TRIBE

5) Kan Jani 8

6) Kis-My-Ft2

7) BIGBANG (Korean band)

8) Masaharu Fukuyama

9) Sandaime J Soul Brothers

10) Hey! Say! JUMP

11) EXO (Korean band)

12) Momoiro Clover Z

13) Dreams Come True

14) Kazumasa Oda

15) Namie Amuro ( to retire in 2018)

16 ) Kat-Tun

 

In these years we also noticed the growing popularity for anime voice actors/singers concerts such as Wake Up, Girls!, Idol M@ster.

 

There are many professional resellers which make it hard for real fans to get ticket. It is normal to see the resale ticket price 200% - 700% of its original price. Crazy... It is not good situation. We hope there shall be a strong regulation on resale business.

There have been big resale markets even for foreign big bands. The market needs to do more about the problem.

Many special Concert for fanclub

A recent trend is that the artists offer special lives only for a certain group of people.

 

For example,  there are seats only available for fanclub members, or even a fanclub only concert takes place. In some case, you need to buy a CD which has a serial number only with which you can apply to win the right to buy a ticket.

 

Onegai Kaeru team can support many of these cases.

 

Just contact us! When you contact us, please state a much details as possible about your request. your name, what/on which date concert you want to go, your budget, birthday.

 

Our service fee changes depending on the urgency/difficulty of the case. 

 

We always ask our customers to be fast to contact. We can not deal with a super urgent case like..." we need you to go to apply physically at some venue for this ticket and the deadline is in 10 hours ".

 

Yes, we make impossible possible but the cost shall be quite high.

 

Ideally talk to us 2 weeks - 1 month in advance at least.

Why so hard for you to buy ticket in Japan? how reseller get ticket??

Many of our customers ask us to buy tickets for them. We certainly help.

 

Yet, it is not rare that customers can not win the rights to buy. While, many resellers get the tickets and put on the resale market for 200 - 700% or even higher price of the original price.

 

Well, how do the resellers get the tickets? The reseller never tells you. It is a secret of them.

By the "profession", we mean that the reseller hires many other people (not just 2 -3 but 10 or more!) to be fanclub members of many bands and let them apply to increase the chance of winning.

This is why you can not get the ticket easily. To be honest, if you are not the fanclub member, your chance is basically quite low.  Most of the good tickets are gone for the fanclub members before you can apply.

Japan Voice Actor News: Momoko Sakura who created Chibi Maruko-chan passed away at 53 Year Old

Momoko Sakura

Life

source: sakura momoko
source: sakura momoko

Sakura was born in Shizuoka pref on 8th May, 1965.

 

In 1984 she studied in a college. During her study, she debuted with Shueisha. After the college she went to Tokyo to join a publisher call Gyosei/ぎょうせい. She often fell asleep on the job. Her boss asked her to choose between her company job or mangaka. Just after 2 months she joined the company, she left.

 

She quit the company late May, 1986 and started drawing the Chibi Maruko chan in August in the same year.

Tattoo in Japan: Almost 60% of the venue with Public Bath Ban Tattoo But More Change to Come for 2020!

Tattoo in Japan: Almost 60% of the venue with Public Bath Ban Tattoo But More Change to Come for 2020!

Do you have tattoo and plan to visit Japan? You may need to read this to have a happy stay in Japan because your innocent tattoo may bring you some trouble... 


You google "tattoo and Japan", you get so many articles about the topic. Why?! 


We explain why you can not go into a public bath/swimming pool or gym if you have tattoo in Japan. 


Here is the latest news about it.

New Finding by Travel Agency in Japan

Japan Tourism Agency published a research asking 452 hotels, 3116 onsen spa, swimming pools etc. about tattoo rule (21 Oct 2015).

 

The result was interesting and also insightful.

 

Finding 1: 55.9% of them answered that they prohibit tattoo in their facilities. The reasons are 1) to keep the peace/moral, 2) industry rule, 3) instruction from the local office and police.

30% has no ban, 12.9% allows with condition.

The reason 3) tells how true the notion in Japan that tattoo means mafia is realistic...

 

Finding 2: 78.3% of them answered there was no case of trouble when one with tattoo take bath.

 

Finding 3: 47.2% of them answered the customers complain when they see someone with tattoo.

2019 and 2020 change

The tattoo rule will change certainly. Two reasons : Rugby World Cup and 2020 Olympic in Tokyo. 

 

For these games, Japan expects to see more tourists from overseas with tattoo. We already started seeing several public baths start accepting people with tattoo.

 

Another big reason we see is that with the shrinking population, many businesses depend on foreign tourists. Many tourists with tattoo choose their stay and destination based on the tattoo rules. Many check our  tattoo OK list before they plan trip to Japan. Some in Japan think only many westerners bear tattoos but in fact many of our Asian friends also have tattoo. If the venue bans the tattoo, they lose significant number of customers!!

 

Up to today the tattoo people can only go to the places with private baths.

different tattoo rules

Under the current air, we see more and more places accept tattoo people.

 

Yamato no Yu

This public bath has always welcomed tattoo since its opening. The venue is in Narita.

 

Anshin Oyado

Anshin Oyado capsule hotel (4 facilities in Tokyo and one in Shijo, Kyoto except for the one in Shinbashi) allows one with "design" tattoo. This hotel is only for men.

 

Ofuro Cafe Utatane

Interesting concept with this place where yoi can bring your own book into bath and read it (at your own cost!).

If you can conceal it with the 12.8cm x 18.2 cm sticker, you can take bath. You can buy it yourself or you buy at the venue which is 200JPY. The website says if the sticker cannot conceal it, you will not be allowed to enter.

New trend with "fake" tattoo in Japan

Even though tattoo has carried a "certain meaning" in Japanese society ( and you may understand why people, esp. eldery ones, can not help viewing negatively tattoo bearers), we see more and more young people see tattoo as a fashion.


In the past 5 years especially in Harajuku fashion, tattoo print tights were booming like crazy! 


Those almost invisible tights with just a little print at the ankle, looking like a real tattoo, or for the people who want more - an all over print - are the must have items this year.

 

I believe everything started with a tiny shop in Tokyo's Harajuku district, whose owner designed tights himself: 

AVANTGARDE (アバンギャルド, it is unfortunately closed down) 

 

Therefore for these designer pieces the price is a little higher (approx. 1,9003,500 JPY per item) but they are made of wonderful quality and really unique! Here is a tiny overview from the shop.

 

Does your country also have a similar good? Do you have the one?

Some of our staf owned one pair of the Mickey Mouse comic print as seen above!

 

Since printed tights got really popular recently, you can find them basically all over Harajuku and Shibuya - from different manufacturers for a smaller price.

 

We really like them since they bring so many fresh new ideas and patterns into the fashion world! Some of these items are still on the market. 

 

Why don't you grab a pair too and spice up your autumn legs?

She goes around and asks for secret information. If one agrees, she asks the person to write the secret on the paper and fold and put the paper into concrete.

 

She has around 100 "secrets". The information provider decides freely how much she could sell this secrets. Most of them are from 500JPY-5000JPY. The most expensive one is 30million JPY.

 

People often buy the secrets around 500JPY.

 

Ms. Kimura explains she started this business once after she got some secret. Once she had it, she started thinking if she could collect secrets of others.

Japan Voice Actor News: Gintama Ends 15 year History

Gintama legend

Last night we were at a McDonald and there was the advertisements of Gintama for its new real life movie "Gintama 2" and DVD.

 

The character was joking that Gintama has been one of the most popular mangas in Weekly Jump yet not no. 1 but around no. 6.

 

That time, we never thought of this news... This morning we were shocked to hear this news. 

 

Samurai manga Gintama started in December, 2003. The 74 Manga editions so far. Its circulation is more than 55,000,000! The TV animation also started since April 2006.

 

It was in the final season from July, 2016.

 

Gintama ends on 15th Of September, 2018.

Hideaki Sorachi

The 15 year old popular manga ends, announced the creator Hideaki Sorachi on 20th August, 2018.

 

Hideaki was born in Hokkaido on 25 May, 1979. He decided to be a manga creator after he saw the last scene of the Ghibli Laputa the Castle in the Sky. His most favorite Ghibli movie is "Kiki's delivery". 

 

He loved Dragon Ball and Slam dunk. His inspiration for his work came rather a different area. It is a world of comedy. His favorite comedian is "DownTown".

 

Did you know?

Did you know his editors in Weekly Magazine thought his manga could not last long at first..? Against the prediction his manga became so popular.

Comiket in Tokyo, Japan in 2019 will be 4 days!

Comiket in Tokyo, Japan in 2019 will be 4 days!

Booking.com
All rights reserved by onegai kaeru
All rights reserved by onegai kaeru

Comiket in 2019

Comiket in 2019 will take place on 9-12 August and 28-31 December. 4 days per event.

 

This is the first time that the event lasts for 4 days. 

 

The size of the event area shall be actually smaller, around 75% of the current size. This is because the Tokyo Big Sight use will be restricted due to the Tokyo Olympic preparation.

 

We will update you about 2020 Comket too once the information available!

Entry fee for all visitors

Unlike the Comike till now where the visitors did not need to pay, the 2019 Comike "most likely" shall charge entry fee. You pay the fee or buy the entry, for which you get a wrist band, or you buy the catalog.

 

The organizer says the expensive will go up because of the 4 day event and smaller event space which results in the less income from advertisement.

What is Comike? Big dojinshi fair in the world

Comiket is the biggest Dojinshi ("同人誌" / self-published works by animator/comic artist) convention in the world since 1975 (21 Dec). 

 

We call it "Komike" in Japan. 

This is one good channel to promote yourself as a Manga-ka or Cartoonist in Japan.

 

When to take place and for how many days?

 

2019 seems a special event with 4 days.

 

Usually it takes place at Tokyo Big Sight two times a year ("Summer Comiket" in mid August of every year e.g. 10-12AUG and "Winter Comiket" around the end of every year e.g. 29DEC- 1JAN).

 

Besides this, there is Comiket Special which takes place every 5 year.

 

<<How to get a job as Manga-ka or catoonist in Japan?>>

How much to enter Comiket in Tokyo?

As of 2018 it is free to enter the Comike.

What you need to be careful

Heat

For Summer Comike, you take care of yourself for the heat. IT was reported every day there were more than 100 people taken to the care center with possible heat stroke. Bring some cap, enough drink.

We heard of some complaints from the people lining up in the morning outside of the venue that there were no drink vendors who could go around so that you could buy drink from where you lined up. There are many vending machines but not practical when you need to line up with several thousands of people.

 

 

Theft ( including Pickpocket) 

There was a report of arrest for pickpocket. If you attended the Comike once, you know the situation is like 8AM in Yamanote line on weekday. So many people. You keep your belongings where nobody can reach easily. 

 

The photos of the cosplayers are here!

What time should you go the venue? Opening hour

The Comket opens from 10:00AM till 17:00 for the 1st and 2nd day and 10:00AM-16:00 for the 3rd day. For 2019, there will be the 4th day. The opening hour should be more or less the same.

(Subject to a possible change in the future. Check the official website )

 

still Morning dash?

Although not allowed, it is sort of tradition that the visitors rush out of the station gate from the first train which reaches at Rinkai line Kokusai Tenjijo station ( りんかい線国際展示場駅 ).

 

 

It is called " Shihatsu Dash / 始発ダッシュ or the first train dash ".

 

Well, we can only say do you run or you fall! Stay safe ;)

Location and How to get there?

The location is at Tokyo Big Sight, a convention hall in Tokyo. In 2019, the venue is a bit smaller than normal.

 

There shall be 3 venues:

West Exhibition Hall

South Exhibition Hall

Aomi Exhibition Hall which is 1.5km away from the other halls.

 

You need to take JR Shinjuku Rinkai line or Yurikamome line from JR Shinbashi station. 

 

You get off at Kokusai Tenjijo station ( りんかい線国際展示場駅 ) of Rinkai line or Kokusai Tenjijo Seimon station (国際展示場正門駅) of Yurikamome line.

Comiket policy

The policy of Comiket is that all participants are equal.

Seller - circle

You need to be selected to be the seller. If selected to be a seller, you need to pay. The normal seller space is a half of a table and two chairs. The seller at the Comiket is called "circle". 

 

The application starts for the next convention around the time of Comiket. That means if you want to be a seller at the next convention, you need to apply around 6 months in advance.

 

If you wish to be a seller, you need to apply by post or email. Many applications fail because of just not enough or wrong information in the application format. You make sure you fill in correctly!

 

More than 36000 circles attend usually

 

Seller can enter at 07:00AM

This is how it is like in Comiket source: wikipedia

Visitor

Is it free to visit the market?

"Yes!"

Unlike many Dojinshi convention, you do not need to buy the catalog (as an entry ticket) to visit the market.

 

More than 500000 visitors usually. In 2018 summer there were more than 53000 visitors.

 

Visitor can line up from 04:30AM and enter at 10:00AM (in fact you are NOT allowed to line up before 04:30AM but many lineup from the day before)

Cosplayer

If you want to do a cosplay at the Comiket, you need to apply in advance.

 

Now the not excessive exposure rules are in use. You should not show too much skin!

careful about several rules at Comiket!!

You must be careful about several rules in Comiket. The similar rules apply also to many Dojinshi Conventions in Japan.

 

 

If you want to take a photo/video of someone in the Comiket, unless you blur the person's face, you are not allowed to publish it on your SNS or any sort. If you want to publish, you need to identify yourself with your name and your contact information, the purpose/media details. The organiser is strict with the rules. The penalty could be the eviction from the Comiket.
