I’m sick and tired of trying to get tickets. I was totally exhausted when I tried to get a couple of seats for my favorite performance. I’m wondering how do people usually get their tickets? It seems that it’s getting harder and harder to reserve tickets compared to a few years ago.
In the end of May, there is a Bunraku, Japanese puppet theatre, performance, which I desperately want to see. So, I decided to get the tickets at any cost. After checking online, I found out that there are two ways to buy tickets. There is a ticket allocation for theatre members as well as for the general public. Needless to say, I thought I would try both of them just to be on the safe side.
I became a member of the theatre right away by paying 3,500 yen in order to gain the exclusive presale tickets. So, I presumed that my tickets should have been all but assured. However, it was not that simple.
On the day they started selling the tickets for theatre members, I simultaneously logged into the theatre’s website and called the reservation center at 10:00 AM on the dot, but both the server and the phone were busy. I tried them over and over again and when I finally got through to the operator, it was already 10:30 though, I was told that only B seats on the third floor were available.
I was so disappointed! The first thing that popped into my head was if I could actually see anything from the third floor. And the second thing was that the 3,500 yen theatre membership was of little avail.
Not to worry. I had another opportunity to get better seats. I was well prepared for the on-sale day for general admission tickets. On that day, as luck would have it, I was able to access the website as soon as they went on sale. But again, unfortunate. Tickets were sold out while I was filling out my information.
Afterwards, I got to know that the tickets were completely sold out in just three minutes.
