Miyajima, Hiroshima Japan

Updated on : September 6, 2016   *  Last modified on : September 10, 2016




I am writing about my home town today.

I was born and raised in Hiroshima. Have lived in several other places also :).

Hiroshima has one of the top scenic spot in Japan, called Miyajima.

Miyajima can be literary translated as shrine (miya) island (jima)

and as the name reveal, it has a shrine called “Itsukushima Shrine (“Itsukushima Jinja” in Japanese)”.

Itsukushima Shrine is uniquely built in sea area and it looks as if it is floating in the ocean when the tide is high.


Itsukushima Shrine


Shrine usually has a gate called “Torii” at the entrance

to separate god space and human world.

Otorii (= big torii) of Itsukushima shrine is famous as it is in the ocean.

When the tide is low, you can walk to the Otorii.

When I was little, I have been to Miyajima for clam digging at this Otorii area.

Miyajima Otorii in the evening

Miyajima is famous for wild deer also along with Nara (I lived in Nara for more than 6 years!)

Planning to go back~~~ for a very special reason <3.

If you are coming to Japan and would like to know more about Miyajima, visit following sites!


I am thinking about writing blogs on Japanese tourist info from now on,

if you have any suggestion to help me out, let me know from the comment!

Thank you!!

For most of the events, you can pre-order online at site called such as forTUNE or Pony Canyon (for Angerme and Juice=Juice).

There are events that related to certain CD shops and you need to be at the shop to get the event ticket.

Anyways all the details should be found on the H!P official site event section.

C-ute SSA ticket 2017 Buying process

Updated on : September 4, 2016   *  Last modified on : April 1, 2017



Hello hello!


OK, in this post, will explain how you can get the ticket through me.


1) The tickets are out on sale on Yahoo auction since March 28th 2017.


The reason above is because the FC lottery result comes out sometime between 24th and 27th every month usually and the tickets come out on auction a bit after that period.

The link will show you the auction result with keywords “C-ute Saitama Super Arena“.

Until about 2 weeks prior to the concert, most of the tickets on the auction will not have the seat number.

For more details, read the previous post “C-ute SSA ticket 2017 How much?” and its additional note.


2) If you see some tickets on the auction and want to go for it,

    contact me from the “contact form” at the END of this blog post.


with following information.

  • Your Name
  • Email address
  • Max bid (excluding my fee)
  • Hotel info


Other details


The payment method: paypal (in Japanese YEN)

My fee: 20% of your winning price


All the necessary fee such as paypal fee, shipping and bank fee will be asked you to pay.

Paypal fee will be different on how much you would like to pay for the ticket

but for the shipping and bank fee, it will probably be 1,000 ~ 1,500yen.

(To see how much in your currency XE currency converter)


Since the ticket will be sent from the Yahoo auction seller directly to you

at around a week before the concert.


I will need your hotel info in Japan when you know it;

  • hotel name
  • hotel address
  • hotel booking name (if you are coming with your friend or family and booking was made under different person’s name then I will need to know that name along with your name)
  • arrival date

C-ute SSA ticket 2017 How much?

Updated on : September 3, 2016   *  Last modified on : September 4, 2016



Hello every one!


Thank you for the questions on my previous post “C-ute Saitama Arena ticket 2017” and

warm welcome back comment ^_^ <3. Arigato!!

I have added P.S. for the question from Josh about becoming the H!P fan club member to enter the FC ticket lottery and in this post will answer the question from virgil.

You may want to read “C-ute Saitama Arena ticket 2017” to fully understand this post.


So here we go!

virgil wants to know

how much would the ticket cost for such a concert on Yahoo auction and also how the process will be.

How much would the ticket cost?

This is all depends how much people want to bid on the auction, however I think

giving the winning price on Buono! concert August 25th 2016

may give you an idea,

so will write how much it was for Buono! concert ticket.

Before I start writing, the venue will be different from Buono! concert.

Buono! was held at Nippon Budokan, capacity 14,471.

C-ute concert will be at Saitama Super Arena, capacity 37,000. Oh so SSA will have more seats, that seems good :).

C-ute Saitama Super Arena 2017 ticket cost

OK! So writing about how much.

As I checked, there were

1) 58 auction history in May, June and July 2016

(this was when and after the FC lottery result came out) and

the winning price was between 10,000 ~ 17,500yen.* 1


Since the original FC ticket price was 8,300yen, the auction price was not that bad.


2) 681 auctions in August. * 2

The first FC ticket with seat number came out on August 9th which is 16 days prior to the concert (the concert was August on 25th so it was 2 weeks + 2 days before the concert).

The lowest won FC ticket was 7,850yen on August 18th.

The seat number was

2nd floor NorthEast stand Row D between 13-26.

For Budokan seat map example, refer this link.

The price was even cheaper than the original FC price 8,300yen (@.@)…


The most expensive FC ticket was 270,000yen.

Yes crazy high price.

The seat number was

Arena B5 between 1~9 (maybe the first row).

For Budokan seat map example, refer this link.


OK, to make the article simple, I will write the process in different post =).

Phew~~~~, I am doing a good work, amn’t I xp hehe!! OK later~~~!

Additional note:

Here are some other things I noticed while searching, but did not want to write in the article since it would get confusing.

Here is the additional note for the mark *1 in the article.

1) The number of auctions held in May, June, July were 10, 20 and 28 each.

Auctions held in July, there were tickets with seat number.

Those were probably achieved with normal ticket sales which is super competitive with these concert.

So I am not going to help you with this normal ticket sale. Too much work with super low reward (close to 0 chance to get the ticket with calling the number for 15 minutes non stop or going to convenience store 10am and such).

2) In August, there were non FC tickets with seat number and FC tickets without seat number sold

before the FC ticket with seat number came out on August 9th.

C-ute Saitama Arena ticket 2017

Updated on : September 1, 2016   *  Last modified on : September 4, 2016

Hello there.

I have asked about the C-ute last concert ticket that will be held next June (June 2017) at Saitama Super Arena.
He wanted to know if I can help him.

So I will share the reply to his question here.

There are several ways though, these are 2 most recommended.

1)  Buy a FC ticket on Yahoo auction

     (the biggest Japanese auction site) when the fan club lottery result comes out.

     This is usually sometime 3-6 months before the concert.

     At this time the seat number is not known.

2) Buy a FC ticket on Yahoo auction

     around 2 weeks prior to the concert when the ticket is shipped to the FC

     members so the auctions are with seat number.

Here is the link to the Yahoo auction result keyword

C-ute Saitama Arena FC

so if you see tickets come out and want to ask me to get hold a ticket for you, you can leave comment here :).

Any questions, feel free to leave comments.
OK! Later!!

P.S. Have asked whether to become

the H!P fan club member and enter the FC lottery is the best way.

Here is what I think.

Those big concert such as disbanding and popular member graduation,


For the Buono! reuniting concert last month (August 25th 2016),
I went for the FC lottery with 3 memberships for my friends and just won 1.

It costs 6,100yen (without any fee) to just join the FC

so I think it might be better to put that 6,100yen for the bidding money.

The decision is all yours so if you want to become the FC member and enter the lottery, I can help you with that also. For those people contact me quick since the FC lottery usually be held 3-6 months prior to the concert, and it takes a month or a month and a half to become the member after the payment to join so I believe

you would want to join the FC in September 2016

or top October to be safe :).

Oh, one more thing.

If you are already the H!P FC member then you should go for the lottery since you do not have to pay that 6,100yen.

In that case, I can help you also.

So let me know when the FC will have the lottery (should be sometime between Dec 2016 ~ March 2017).
