2019 Worlds in Saitama, Japan - Tickets help

Recommended Posts

For NHK I had to have my tickets stamped at a special window before going through the entrance. It was clearly not my name but they didn’t ask for any ID. This was for the foreign sale, though, so it might not be as easy though if you’re using a service to apply, they should be able to find out for you.

Okay, so for our convenient, I have made a summary of what we have known so far. I'll try to keep updating this as the ticket sales go by

Feel free to DM me if there's a mistake or I missed something.

I’m quite certain there’s only one application per account. There should be another non-member lottery later so you might be able to try then without an account.

Thanks, then I have to find another solution. I hope in the meantime they will post some other news about foreigners sell.. even tho I fear they're going to do that only after applications for lottery in Japan are over.

@crazykuroneko very useful, thank you!

Are there travel agencies that will enter the lottery for you this time? Or do you all need to have Japanese friends? :(

There are, and you won't even be taking up lottery spots, you just get seats. But the one I know about is sold out.

My friends found travel agency that will enter lottery but they only have one account (cuz you must pay by credit card). We didn't found one without lottery in our country, those where you can buy a package with tickets. At worst will search for resellers (but that'll depend on prices).

Suddenly I found a way to change the name of the account (though you can't change some other info like date of birth) - wrote it in katakana were it says kanj (it can't be empty).

The delivery details can be changed until the last day of application. You can change the address (I'm deciding on that moment rn and clearing things up with a hotel), but to change the delivery name you must cancel application and apply again. You can make changes until the application period is open (maybe this info will be useful).

Hi guys, do you know if we can use the same credit card to enroll in the lottery using different accounts? 

 

I asked another friend's help to register in the lottery, but the system keeps saying the first choice option has been exceeded or something. I'm thinking it may be because I'm using the same credit card I used in another application. Anyone had a similar experience?

Okay, I tried with an international debit card this time and it worked! 

 

So I think we can add the following in the list of things that we've learned

- the same credit card can't be used for multiple entries in the lottery

- foreign debit cards are also accepted in addition to credit cards

 

We'll all get the hang of this soon 😄

By the way I figured you can change name to latin characters in settings (instead of kanji) and copy it later to delivery address (from keyboard input latin characters didn't work for me maybe some encoding or font issue).

I have now managed to persuade a Japanese colleague to sign up for me - was pretty tricky! The German credit card institute thought it was fraud... :embSwan:

Now waiting until 10th October... whoaaah!!!!~. 

 

Am dying of anticipation....

 

Will there be more ticket rounds for Japanese? Or do they release single tickets after this round and then comes the foreign sales?

There usually are several rounds of ticket lotteries, right? Will this always be through Lawson?
