Want to buy: Aiko’s concert ticket

I found this very interesting.

In Indonesia, you will find scalpers trying to sell their tickets with high price. It’s them who promote their tickets to potential buyers.

It’s the other way around in Japan.

Here, it’s the buyer who promote themselves, saying that they need the concert tickets.

Aiko’s “Love Like Pop” ticket concert, please.

Is this also the norm in your country?

*Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan

  1. I think in Portugal is the same as Indonesia. :) I like the light in the first photo. It’s brighter.

    • Yeah, I assume that would be the norm everywhere in the world — except Japan? :D…
      You are right. I don’t really like the second photo either. I post it here only to balance the story.

  2. Astaga…. sampe segitunya ya.. :D Apakah di Jepang tak ada calo? Atau memang aturan di sana tidak memungkinkan adanya calo?

    • Aturan? Setahuku sih tidak ada yang melarang. Ini lebih karena faktor budaya sepertinya sih.

  3. In the US there are both, scalpers and people who look for tickets.

    I like the 1st photo too, though I wonder how long she can stand there with those shoes.

    • She probably has to stand there for a very long time since the concert is in the evening :D…
      But anyway, you should come here and see it for yourself. Most Japanese ladies wear high-heels and seems to be pretty comfortable with it — comfortable enough to run and catch a train or bus. Amazing, no? :-).

  4. Yes amazing – I would have fallen flat on my face :). I have a friend who wear 3 inch heels even when she was heavily pregnant. I think that’s nuts!

    • Hahaha… well, I hope everyone is alright, including the baby :D…
