About Stage-View Lottery
Out of Japan

Viewing the AJ Open Stages (RED, WHITE, GREEN, YELLOW, BLUE) from the reserved seats area requires taking part in the Stage Lottery.
Only those who purchased the Advanced Admission Ticket (with Stage Lottery) can apply for the reserved seats.
Regardless of the lottery results, the Admission Ticket with Stage Lottery can be used as a regular admission ticket to the venue.
The Admission Ticket (with Stage Lottery) itself gives you the right to apply for the lottery. You will not receive a separate ticket for the application.
Viewing the AJ Open Stages from the standing area at the back, or the Presentation Stage programs does not require any advanced applications. Please note that the standing areas are limited in size.
Reselling/transferring the tickets is strictly forbidden.
