Japan Travelogue: Tour Date News  

Hi, minna~! ^_^


Finally, there's travelling news. While Koichi is about to start his 2010 tour and Tsuyoshi is preparing a special gig at Heian -jingu Shrine (6. & 7. October), Kanjani8 have now released their tour dates of the year. (for detailed information, check: Johnny's net) Almost three months of touring. @_@ Wow! Last station will be Osaka, to perform the End of Year concert at the local Dome. Same as last year.

For me that means that I've mis-calculated and that KinKi Kids will be the ones to perform in Tokyo at the time. (I'm starting to get the feeling that Johnny only sent them off to Osaka for the 08/09 Countdown as a punishment for the "Phi" desaster >_> ) So, New Year's con in Tokyo Dome. Too bad that I've booked my hotel in Osaka for that time. So, now I have two options:

1.) Forget about KinKi Kids and just watch Kanjani8 in Osaka. They ARE really cool too.
2.) Move from Kyoto right back to Tokyo on the 31st, visit the KinKi con twice and write a fan report on it.

I'm very strongly leaning towards option number 2. ^^  I REALLY want to see KinKi Kids on stage. And the birthday con is always so cute and hilarious. Plus, I feel such incredible gratitude towards all the people on domotokyoudai  who keep providing a lot of people with news and downloads and translations and so many other things, that I'm hoping I can give at least something back by posting a con report.

So, my travel buddy and I will make an extra journey to Tokyo. But thanks to Kanjani8 I know this unexpectedly early and can now still try to find an accomodation for the time. And YAYS I'll get to see Tokyo Dome!!!!!

Lately I've been talking to someone on lj who will be in Tokyo at the time of the con and also wants to visit. I'm really hoping that maybe we can get our tickets with the help of that person. Now I'm waiting for KinKi Kids tour date release. That's when it's starting to become really interesting. I'll keep you up-to-date on any progress. For now, that's all I can write for a con update.

Ja ne! ^^

Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful
Current Music: Happy Happy Greeting (KinKi Kids)

Omg, it's again so late already. @_@
I cannot chat very long tonight. Tomorrow we're ridding our basement of old stuff, so I have to get up early. Or at least earlier than usual.

Totally random: I just watched Koichi's newest PV and almost died of the hotness. Really, he's never been so sexy. He's 31 now and so much hotter than when he was ten years younger. How does he do that?! XD

Of course. Yes, talk later. Have fun at class! ^o^/

Eito are great, that's out of question, but...

option 2!! you have to take option 2!!!! really! believe me!
...ok, don't mind me, I think I'm just going nuts *.~
Hikaru: Kotsu feedingyoru_no_hikaru on September 5th, 2010 05:23 pm (UTC)
LOL! I'm already looking for a hotel in Tokyo for the 31st and 1st. ^^"

I'm really lucky this info got out so early. If I had known this beforehand, I would have waited with the booking altogether. Well, can't be helped. But I want to see KinKi! My travel buddy is feeling a bit torn. He wants to see Tokyo Dome, but the extra travel is a bit troublesome for him. Plus, he's dreading the con altogether. It's not really his kind of music and sadly he finds neither of them appealing. I totally don't get that. I mean, how high do your standards have to be to claim that Koichi isn't good-looking enough? @_@
єℓℓι: ko-chan black hairmonstakarotte on September 5th, 2010 05:27 pm (UTC)
haha, I'm relieved, you have to see KinKi and tell me in every detail what they did in every second of the concert XP

hm, I can totally get when your friend doesn't like Tsu - I think if you look at him without knowing KinKi and so on, you'd think at first "what a strange guy, strange style..." but Kochan in contrary is a little prince, he should like him at least XP
Hikaru: Koichi smileyoru_no_hikaru on September 5th, 2010 05:31 pm (UTC)
I know. It's so off. XP Strangely, he's starting to respect Tsuyo now. As an actor. I finally got him to watch "Summer Snow". He was all "yada" because it's a human drama with a sad ending, but he really likes it now. XD

Tsuyoshi hits you as totally off at first sight. Strangely, the more I see of them, the better I like him and the more random Koichi appears to be. XDDDDD (But I still lvoe the little Prince. A lot. <3 )
єℓℓι: Tsuyo beachmonstakarotte on September 5th, 2010 05:36 pm (UTC)
oh I like him as an actor, although nearly all his roles are surrounded by an air of sadness =( - ok 33pun tantei is an exception ^^'

you're right, otherwise Tsu wouldn't have accomplished to climb to the rank of my personal JE favourite ^^
Hikaruyoru_no_hikaru on September 5th, 2010 05:57 pm (UTC)
LOL!!!! Same, same. XD Tsuyo rules!!!!

Sorry, can't write now. Have to run and meet some friends for the movies. Tonight's "Apprentice Wizard". Maybe we can do something like that too some time. Ja ne! ^^
єℓℓι: Tsuyo Blumenmeermonstakarotte on September 5th, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
exactly! ^^

have fun :)
yeah that would be fun, a meet up, maybe with zombiezahn too...?
Hikaru: Swan Songyoru_no_hikaru on September 5th, 2010 09:16 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that would be nice. Currently I'm almost always free since we're still on summer vacation at work. ^^

Movie was fun. Well, I like that kind of thing in the first place and if you ignore the obligatory "good guy sacrifices himself in battle to save the world and then gets resurrected by his friend" it's a quite decent movie. But really, that's what I like about Japanese movies. When a character is dead, then he's dead. End of story. I mean, if you want them to survive, you don't exactly have to kill them only for the effect. It's kind of growing old. Wah, I'm ranting. Sorry, sorry. ^^"
єℓℓι: KinKi Babystarmonstakarotte on September 6th, 2010 12:25 am (UTC)
hm, I should slowly start to study a bit again, since I have exams at the end of the month, but I wouldn't have a problem to make a pause some time ^^

hm, I never get to the cinema, there aren't that many films that really appeal to me and in addition to that I'm so broke all the time, that going to the cinema is a really rare activity ^^'

lol, that's the typical hero-syndrome XP
Ranmaharan1 on September 6th, 2010 05:15 am (UTC)
waw, great~ it will be nice if we can meet at the concert.
do msg me if you come to Tokyo, ok?
I will watch 31st and Jan 1st concert as usual. hope to get a good seat from balloting though =)
Hikaru: Kotsu feedingyoru_no_hikaru on September 6th, 2010 08:58 pm (UTC)
Omg, you mean, you're going? And you've been there before? WOW! Fantastic!!!!! Someone with experience will be at the scene. Yays! Yes, let's definitely meet there. :)

*sighs* Balloting... I still don't know whether I'll be able to get tickets via the fanclub. It's almost impossible if you're not living in Japan. And sadly my friend's ex-boyfriend has refused to help us out. T_T Well, I can always try for second hand... Ah, anyway, it will definitely be nice to meet other fans there. ^^ *cheers*
Ranmaharan1 on September 6th, 2010 11:55 pm (UTC)
aw is that so? ^^"

well if you serious maybe I can help you for balloting. since I am the FC member. just let me know~
Last year I was lucky enough to have someone watch with me, I dont know about this year ^^"
Hikaru: KinKi Kids Chuuyoru_no_hikaru on September 7th, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much for offering!!!! <3
And I'm dead serious about the con. I've been planning this journey since Feburary with the main goal to get there.

Ah, but I wonder whether it's possible. And what's more, I don't mean to be bothersome. I mean, I really want to go and to have someone help me with the FC would be like a dream. I've stopped hoping something like that will happen. (I've been trying for about 6 months now.) Tickets are difficult to get a hold of, ne? And I have yet another obstacle on the list. I'm already going with someone. Well, I'm traveling with someone, that is. I mean, it would be perfect to go together with you. But I'm not leaving my travel buddy, since he comes all the way to Japan with me, so I'd really need 2 tickets already. I'd really like us all to go together, but that would be 3 then, altogether. I don't know... and I really don't mean to bother, so if it's too troublesome, or impossible to begin with, that's okay. But I really want to go and I'm quite at a loss here, so I'd really like to ask you for help. If you can, it would certainly be wonderful if you could try and get tickets for all of us. From what I've heard it's difficult, though. Is it true that you have no influence on the seating area and number of seats you will be dealt? I don't really know how it works exactly, just heard that you apply for tickets and then wait and see what you get. @_@
Ranmaharan1 on September 7th, 2010 12:50 am (UTC)
for 1 concert we can apply for 4 tickets. but forget dreaming a good seat just because we are FC member, it doesnt change our luck ^^"
maybe I will have someone to go with, well...havent ask my crime partner though ^^"
so it will be enough for 1 membership to provide the tickets for 4 of us.
Jan 1st ticket quite hard to get but I think it will be fine, if if you worry we can borrow my friend membership, since she will not going this year. the classic problem is applying for balloting=pay the ticket 1st. I think I need to start shaving >.>
Hikaru: Swan Songyoru_no_hikaru on September 7th, 2010 01:32 am (UTC)
OMG, that would be AWESOME!!!!!!!
I really cannot put in words how much I love you right now. Reeeeeaaaaaaally love you! *glomps* <33333333333
(I'll definitely make that story for you a good one. *sighs* What little I can do for pay back. -_- )

Oh, see, that's something I didn't know. You have to pay for the tickets in advance? Like, all seats have the same price? Or do you pay for a "category"? Well, I can arrange for money transfer, that's not a problem, I also have a PayPal account, if that helps. How much are we talking about? Not that I actually care, just wondering. I've been saving my money all year. XD

And, of course, it would be awesome to have nice seats, but so long as I'll get to be there I'll be ecstatic. Wah, now I'm getting excited. XD I should really go to bed and sleep now, but I'm just bouncing around in my room. ^^"
Ranmaharan1 on September 7th, 2010 01:43 am (UTC)
i suppose it was 8000yen last concert, dont remember ^^"
yes, we have to pay in advance, if cant get the ticket they will transfer back the money. the price are same but not you luck! XDD
no category for seat ^^"
Hikaru: KinKi Kids Hugyoru_no_hikaru on September 7th, 2010 01:53 am (UTC)
Okay, I see. It is a little bit more than I had expected, but I think it's really okay. I'll definitely invest that money. It's a huge event, after all.

Ah, I want arena seats! Oh well, who cares? But it would still be awesome! ^^"

YAYS! I'm going to KinKi con. WAH! *hops around* Wait till my travel buddy hears that. I've been ranting to him about how difficult it all is for months. I think, when I first tell him he's gonna think I'm joking. XD
Ranmaharan1 on September 7th, 2010 02:05 am (UTC)
I dont really remember the price, i think it wil around 7000~8000yen. because koichi`s con ticket was 7000+500(administration fee), I will check my past ticket when back home. ^^
Hikaru: Kotsu feedingyoru_no_hikaru on September 7th, 2010 02:32 am (UTC)
Wah, cool! And again, thank you so much!!!! ^_^
Ah, I have to go to bed now. Time difference sucks. But I need to get up early. Talk to you later? I'd like to know a bit more about the concert, Tokyo Dome, and so on. Since you've been there before. Sorry, I'm so curious. ^^"
Ranmaharan1 on September 7th, 2010 02:35 am (UTC)
no problem ^^
you can add my msn if you want, it will be easier talking by msger ^^
my msn is kuroi@live.jp
Hikaruyoru_no_hikaru on September 7th, 2010 02:38 am (UTC)
Cool, thanks! Guess that means I'm finally getting an account there too. XD Later. *scuttles off to bed*
Ran: OMG!maharan1 on September 13th, 2010 07:43 am (UTC)
GYA~ concert shedule been out now *happy*
Hikaru: Kotsu feedingyoru_no_hikaru on September 14th, 2010 01:18 am (UTC)
OMG! WAAHHHH!!!!!! *bounces too*
Way cool!!!!!! Now I can't wait for December. ^_^"
But... does that mean that balloting is going to start soon? I didn't expect tour dates this early. If you need money for the tickets, please let me know.

PS: I've FINALLY finished your request fic. This one became the longest I've ever written. I really hope I can put it in 2 parts. @_@ I only just finished it. (Well, I still have to do a rough beta.) Now I went online to update and now I'm all bouncy. ^^"
Ranmaharan1 on September 14th, 2010 01:30 am (UTC)
yes its starting from yesterday until sept 9th, would you please contact me on msn?
