Regarding the Methods of Admission

There are 3 different methods of admission to an event.

In principle, there is a system of purchasing a booklet but the method of admission differs for each event. Check the information page of each event to know which admission method is appropriate.

The system of purchasing a booklet

All the regular participants, after buying a booklet at the entrance gate, are admitted to the venue.

The system of purchasing a booklet or a ticket of admission

All the regular participants, after buying a booklet or a ticket of admission at the entrance gate, are admitted at the venue.
The booklet and the ticket of admission have a different price. For example: the booklet costs 1,200 yen and the ticket of admission costs 1,000 yen.
We introduce this system of admission with a booklet and a ticket of admission only for large-scale events. For details, >>Here

Free admission for regular participants (the participants are free to buy or not buy the booklet)
The entrance is free of charge. If regular participants want to buy a booklet, they can buy it at the entrance. Almost all the ZR series are free of charge at the entrance.

Regarding the sale in advance of the booklet

Regarding the possibility to buy or not buy in advance or the date of publishing of the booklet, check each event information page.
Basically, we sell in advance the booklet at the occasion of large-scale events at bookshops or on the Internet by mail order (b2-online reservation settlement website). For advance sale information, have a look at each event page's information. Due to distribution cost, the price of the advance sale of the booklet in bookshops differs from the price of the booklet on the day of the event. Take note of this difference.
Even in the case of an advance purchase, make sure to bring the booklet with you.
After purchasing in advance, holders of booklet that have been considerably altered or divided in parts will not be admitted to the venue.
If such a booklet is discovered at the entrance gate, you will have to purchase it a second time.
In the case of large-scale events, we will prepare a special entrance at the main gate for those who have made the purchase in advance.
