From Tokyo Metro Kudanshita Subway Station 

  • Take the Number 2 Exit from the station. You’ll come up from underground at a sidewalk, which you should follow straight. After a block or two there will be a bridge on your left — it doesn’t look like much of a bridge at first, but it is. Cross it.
  • At this point it gets relatively easy. Follow the path straight until you’re faced with a right turn and take it. You’ll pass through a large wooden gate (You may see people lined up at this gate; that is for merchandise, NOT to get into the venue).
  • Once you round the corner just past the gate, you’re there! The main entrance will be just to your left. If you walk past it a little ways you’ll come to a cafe on a small street to the right, which is a nice place to relax before a show.

 

General Information

  • Max Capacity: 8,000~10,000 (actual capacity is 14,000+, but the seats behind the stage will not be used for concerts).
  • Drink Ticket: Unconfirmed.
  • Box Office: Unconfirmed.
  • Accessibility: Unconfirmed.
  • Lockers/Cloak:Unconfirmed.
  • Restrooms: Around the hallways outside of the main arena on all floors.
  • Merchandise:Often for sale outside before shows, though booths are also open along the hallways inside as well.
  • Rail: The rail keeps the front row about 5 meters from the stage.
  • Lining Up: The capacity of this venue is too large for lines; people will be allowed in either first-come first-served based on the floor they are sitting in, or based on ticket groups.
  • Demachi: Unconfirmed.

 

Tips

  • Arrive early to get merchandise, to get a feel for how the lines will work, and to see the flowers that companies and other musicians have sent to the band playing that day.
  • On the second floor it’s impossible to make a complete loop around the venue in the hallways, as a section is blocked off for staff. The halls are also very narrow and generally have traffic flowing in one direction. Be careful of this!
  • Snacks and drinks are for sale on the first floor, but before the venue opens there’s also a small cafe across from the main entrance.

    I love those articles! So useful for people going to Japan for the very first time and so nostalgic for those who have already been there!
