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

Hello, I just have a Question regarding this buying process. So Is Lottery the only way to get a ticket to this event? I might have a couple of friends in japan that could get me tickets if were like the US and you could buy em at the arena but I dont really want to bother them with something like this. I’m just trying to get 2 tickets for my GF and I and if lottery is the only option i would deff use your services to get two tickets! Unless You can’t get specific seating or something @_@

    Hi there, thank you for your comment :).
    As far as I know, I don’t think you can buy these ticket at the Arena since most of them are sold out elsewhere already (if the concert are not major then you can probably buy them at the concert venue I assume).
    However for these big concerts, I would say there are 2 ways to get the tickets. 1) by fan club lottery 2) via auction.
    If the concerts you want to go are not that big, then you can also get them by calling or booking online at the ticket booking place such as “e+ (e plus)” and “ticket pia”.

    For the seating, basically you cannot choose. Only way you can choose the seating is to buy them on auction around 2 weeks prior to the concert when the fan club tickets will be delivered. There are probably some tickets out there to be sold prior to that period, those are usually ticket bought via normal ticket place (such as “e+”) so the seating may be not that good. Hope it helps ;)!

    Have a wonderful time in Japan when you come =D!!

Hello 🙂
I really hope I can make it to the SSA concert!
However, I am extremely confused as to how to get a ticket.
How will these auctions work? How do I know how much I’ll need to pay? Is there no way to just buy the tickets normally off of a website? And what if I want a ticket for a family seating area, is that not possible?
If you don’t mind, please explain the ticket situation for me in detail!
Thank you so much!!!

    Hello Salma :).
    Thank you for the comment.
    I am not sure where you are from, but I hear that the ticket booking is simpler in the US and some other countries.

    In Japan, we do have normal ticket booking sites where we can buy concert tickets, however for this C-ute disbanding, I think there are close to 0% chance to buy with this way. For these special concerts like disbanding and graduation, the tickets are sold out in a few minutes.

    With Hello! Project, there are basically 3 ways to buy tickets.
    1) Buy with fan club pre-order (need to be a fan club member to go for the pre-order) — there will be lottery and chance to win is very low, however the price on winning is fixed with this option.
    2) Buy from normal ticket booking sites — since the tickets number will be very low after the fan club pre-order, the tickets will be sold out very quickly, however the price on winning is fixed with this option also.
    3) Buy off from Yahoo auction. This is the option I wrote on this blog post.

    Since 1) and 2) options, the chance to grab the tickets are very low I think putting all of your money with option 3) is the best way.
    For your note, you can join H!P fan club with 7,320yen. But since the chance of winning the lottery is very low, I think just going for 3) is the best.
    Hope this will answer your question.

      Salma · January 13, 2017 at 1:00 pm

      Thank you for your reply!
      Regarding option 2, from which websites can I buy the tickets from, and when should I to get the best seatings?
      Once again, thank you!

        Anything About Japan · January 13, 2017 at 2:33 pm

        Hi again Salma :).

        These two are the main 2 ticket websites (for option 2).

        Sorry it wasn’t very clear.
        With option 2, there are close to no chance to just to get the ticket.
        So there won’t be chance to choose locations.

Hi Nozomi! 🙂
First time visiting your website, and I’m actually quite impressed with all the explanations !!

My name is Linda (from Canada) and will be going to Japan to attend C-ute disbanding concert.
Since I am visiting all the way from Canada, I want to make sure I can secure a ticket for sure.
So probably option 3 would be the best option for me , right?
And I don’t mind paying a lot for a good seat.

So.. I’m not sure how the process works
Do I have to send you a separate email..? and when do I pay you? When will I know that I’ve gotten my ticket ? (so I can also book my flight ticket to Japan)

Thank you in advance for your reply!

    Anything About Japan · January 21, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    Hello Linda!

    Thank you for your comment and thank you also for the compliment :)!

    Yes, the option 3 is the best for you.

    If you want to secure your ticket before booking your flight and also want to get a good seat, then I will recommend you to go for the auction TWICE on 2 different timings.
    1) As soon as the ticket are out on the auction.
    The EARLIEST possible timing for this is around Feb 24-27th. You want to win a ticket with lower price since the seat number is not known at the moment.
    For the fan club pre-order tickets, they are only shipped 2 weeks prior to the concert to the FC members and that is when people will know the seat number.
    2) About 2 weeks prior to the concert with your seat preference.

    This way, you can secure your ticket and also be able to get a good seat.
    I can let you know if the tickets are likely to be on the auction at the end of the month if you check on me around 10th every month.

    For the process, yes please send me a separate email when you see the tickets are on sale on this link (https://goo.gl/o5hSLS).

    I will ask you to pay some money (5,000yen~ depends on your budget, sorry I have not decided all the details yet) before bidding the auction and ask for the rest after winning.

    About when you will know that you’ve gotten ticket, it depends on when the fan club pre-order is held though, it will be between at the end of February and at the end of April.
    OK! I believe I answered everything. I sent you an email about 20 minutes ago, so please check. If you do not see it please check your spam folder too! Thank you :).

    P.S. If you see other pre-order chance than fan club pre-order (sometimes, there are blog pre-order and ticket sites pre-order), then it will be a good opportunity to try to get the ticket. If you come across those information, I can help you with that as well :).
