Best Tickets in Town by Wendi Hailey
rom Broadway musicals to European ballets, Tokyo draws some of the biggest acts in entertainment. But securing a ticket can require a profusion of legwork and solid Japanese language skills to navigate websites or kiosks. With the Club’s BoxSeat service, however, Members can forgo that exasperating process completely and find themselves at the stage performance, concert or sporting event of their choice with ease. “The most convenient part is that
they don’t have to do any translation,” says the Member Services Desk’s Atsushi Kenmochi, who oversees the service. In addition, the Club regularly offers tickets at discounted prices, individual seating choice and a map to the venue. Throughout the year, Kenmochi typically works to obtain seats to rare events that have sold out to the public, such as Cirque du Soleil, Kabuki and the recent Madonna and U2 concerts. Selection is based on Members’ preferences and encompasses
many overseas acts, with ticket numbers ranging anywhere from five to 200. “We try to provide a variety of events, from the Chicago Symphony to Disney on Ice,” he says. “We try to get interesting acts, especially for our foreign Members.” For more information on tickets to various events available at the Club, check out the weekly BoxSeat guide (updated every Friday) in the Member Services’ Concierge section of the Club website or inquire at the Member Services Desk. ®
