Since I've been doing a lot of buying of concert tickets in preparation for my next trip to Japan in April, I thought it might be helpful to share some of the ways I use to get tickets to Japanese concerts from overseas. I'm sure there are a good amount of people who want to do this for their own trips, but are just too intimidated by the process. It does seem very complicated on the outside, but once you know the ins and outs, it can be surprisingly straightforward. Though as you'll see, it really all depends on how the ticket sales are structured! I'll cover as many different scenarios as I've run into, but that isn't to say there aren't other possibilities as well.
