I am looking to buy concert tickets to see Super Show 4 at the Tokyo Dome in May. I've done a lot of research on this, and it seems as if overseas fans cannot buy concert tickets held in Japan online. We're stuck with 'middlemen' websites. The websites basically buy the the ticket, charge a commission (and a premium for the ticket itself), then ship it to the individual overseas.
For those living in Japan, is this a normal practice and are these websites legit? I don't mind paying good $ to watch my favourite band, but I am weary of these websites as none of them look remotely professional and speak half-decent English in their communications.
For reference, I am now in correspondence with the website
http://personalshopperj.com/. So far they have been upfront about answering my questions and quote (and they just got 2 tickets this morning to fulfill my request) but I am still not 100% on saying 'yes'.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
