No-Markup Ticket Pricing --- Guaranteed Delivery --- Guaranteed Event Admission
All from someone in Japan you can contact anytime.
"Show up. You'll get a seat."
This was particularly hopeful advice given the popularity of baseball, the habit of Japanese to purchase tickets far in advance, and often sold out dates. Sometimes when I was sure a game wouldn't be sold out, it turned out to be. I looked like an idiot.
"Try a ticket outlet."
I suggested outlets only to find so many people thwarted by the failure to find one, the language barrier, payment hassles, or sold-out games because their travel dates didn't allow them to be in Japan early enough to get tickets.
"Maybe you could try something online."
Japanese online services are often unable to accept out-of-country credit cards and require a Japanese address and phone to go with the credit card.
And now there is the head-shakingly sad fact of an increasing prevalence of counterfeit online tickets with purchasers finding their printed tickets not accepted as valid for entry.
You take none of these risks with us.
Do What I Do
I finally woke up to put online here that which I do, along with team scouts, Major League Baseball personnel, and many travel agents. That is to have Michael Westbay in Japan get your tickets for you. Michael, a California native, has lived in Japan with his family for over 20 years.
You pay what we do - a modest tip for his efforts in getting your tickets and arranging guaranteed delivery to your Japan location. This tip is more than offset by your travel time and money saved, hassle avoided, and peace of mind.
Michael is your Ticket Concierge while you are in Japan. You'll have all his contact information. He's a terrific resource to have standing by, and he's assisted on many topics to our JapanBall ticket holders.
Michael stands in your place in the ticket line. You never pay more than what you yourself would pay for such tickets using a credit card.
100% Guaranteed Price, Delivery, and Game Admission
We charge you enough per ticket to take into account the currency exchange rate, credit card use, and ticketing fee, if any, for that particular venue. No markups. The same costs you would face. Guaranteed
Tickets are delivered to your hotel or any other Japan address. Guaranteed.
In business for over a decade, we have a 100% game admission rate. You won't be denied entry with any ticket from us. Guaranteed.
At times there are price promotions we uncover. We refund those savings to you.
We don't send tickets outside Japan. We prefer to keep your tickets in our local hands at all times. We have never, not once, failed to have tickets delivered as promised.
We deliver tickets seven days a week by the afternoon on your hotel check-in date. With your check-in date, all hotel front desks will sign for your ticket envelope and hold it for your pick up.
Orders for more than one game are all delivered at the same time.
Feel free to order now without yet having your hotel or delivery address. Don't worry, we'll ask you for that info from time to time.
We figure you want to attend the game, so if your chosen price range is sold out, we will get the next lower available price range and refund the balance, unless you instruct us otherwise during the order process.
If there is a rainout, we will help you get the tickets refunded.

Your Seat Location
You will have reserved seats TOGETHER as close to home plate as possible in your price range as are available when you order.
The teams have many different levels of seating. We have narrowed those down into three: Good, Better, and Best.
BEST are the best available seats and closest to home plate. These are generally in the lower seating section between first and third base.
BETTER seats will generally be in an area above the lowest section and near or beyond either first or third base.
GOOD seats will generally be up higher and/or further down the first or third base lines.
Some people desire to be on the first or third base side. We do not take that into account unless you tell us that during your order. Our default is to always get you as close to home plate as possible in your price range, without regard to side.
All seats will be stadium chairs, except for the Tigers' Good and Better and the Carp' Good and Performace, which are padded bench seats.
Ordering Hints, Youth/Senior Prices, and Post-Season Play
The earlier you order, the more seats available from which we can choose. Tickets typically go on sale eight to twelve weeks out from a game, except some teams have all games available starting in March. There is no percentage in waiting to order. If tickets are not on sale when you order, we will have your order in hand and can immediately jump on it the moment sale opens.
We require at least four days lead time to complete your order and have your tickets safely delivered.
Everyone must have a ticket, though babes in arms and toddlers have been allowed in without tickets to sit on an adult lap at the discretion of the ticket taker.
Teams have no youth/senior prices on the advanced sale reserved seats we buy. The few teams that offer such tickets do so in limited numbers on the day of the game for general admission benches and standing room only.
Seats in the baseball outfield organized cheer sections are not available, those being solely for the cheer groups.
We do not do tickets to post-season play because of the limited lead time once teams become known and almost immediate sellouts.
One Order Fee
$59 per order is charged for the Ticket Purchase Fee, Concierge Service, and Hand-Delivery.
That's $59 per total order - not per ticket or per game. This $59 covers all the costs of getting your tickets and securely delivering them to you in Japan.
We buy tickets for you under the usual conditions you would expect: Once purchased they allow no refunds or exchanges.
Our online service is designed for the casual traveler purchasing a few tickets.
