Wow, I'm not sure where to begin but I'll try. I would recommend flying into Haneda airport, which is close to the heart of the city instead of Narita, which is a few hours to the north of Tokyo. The public transport system is one of the best in the world so getting about is efficient and place names are written in Japanese and Latin script. There are too many places to count as to where to stay near the Dome but here is but one place with transport to and from Haneda and the Tokyo Dome Hotel, which as the name suggests is adjacent to the Dome itself: Haneda to Tokyo Dome By the way, the limo referred to in the link is not a limo as it is understood in the US and Europe but a bus. Finally, as to the language barrier, many Japanese don't speak English but you'll find many are very friendly and helpful and will do their best to help out a stranger in a strange land. All in all I think you'll do just fine. Hope this helps...

Does anyone know how to switch the language on the Stones Tokyo ticket page to English? It is just impossible for me to navigate in Japanese. Rolling Stones - Tokyo 2/26/2014

There is no way to buy tickets in English or from overseas, as far as I can see. In the past, the fan club always had a ticket sale in English (and decent but not great seats). The Tokyo presale a are a total crap shoot - you could easily get seats in the nosebleeds or even worse, at the back of the floor - you never know until you receive the tickets. At least during the general sale, you can usually see where the seats are before you buy. I'm in meetings on the day they go on sale, but I might be able to help people secure tickets in the aftermarket.

I looked and unfortunately I did not see a way to switch between Japanese and English as the site is intended for the Japanese audience...

Follow the instructions via the link below. I've done this for other languages and just tried it with the Stones Tokyo ticket page and it worked.

you can also use Chrome which will translate the page for you making it semi-comprehensible

Re: Tokyo Rolling Stones shows and travel info

Date: December 18, 2013 01:36

Semi-comprehensible is right. The translation from Japanese to English was not very good and did not convey the nuances of the Japanese at all well. But, if it got jazzbass and anyone else who wanted a ticket sorted all's well...

I think the Gimme Shelter store was pretty well known internationally. Used to be in Shinjuku and then moved to Parco in Shibuya. But the last time I was there, 2 years ago, it has closed. It was an interesting store. Lots of Stones stuff, lots of commerical junk but always a few interesting things as well.

What is the best store for Stones bootlegs in Tokyo ? Would love to have a recomendation.

Don't know if it's the best store for Stones bootlegs, but Blind Faith stocks the most comprehensive selection of any I've visited in Tokyo. I had to resist the child-in-a-sweetshop urge on my first visit, and remember that a lot of the boots I'm interested in were recorded decades ago, and will most likely sound awful.
For any first time visitors, worth pointing out that the division between bootlegs and legit recordings are a bit more fluid in Japan; it's quite possible to find them all mixed in together in a lot of stores.

I translated the ticket page to English, but then it wouldn't let me translate the buy page, it said "secure pages cannot be translated". Is there anyway to buy on a page written in English?

The Gimme Shelter in Parco (Shibuya) is now renamed and just an ordinary pop & rock shop. There was another one in Roppongi about 100 yards from Hard Rock Cafe but it closed recently. That one had only a little merchandise in the front and a cafe area in the back.

Fortunately, there are still quite a few very good bootleg merchants in Nishi Shinjuku:


CRAZY MAMA: All Stones specialty shop. CDs...I think this is the source of all the Vinyl Gang Productions releases. 8th floor.

BACKTRIP RECORDS: Good selection of Stones cds and dvds. 9th floor.

BLIND FAITH: They've got a wall full of Stones cds and dvds; reasonably priced.

LIGHTHOUSE RECORDS: Several Stones cds. Prices are a little more expensive.

STRANGELOVE RECORDS: They've got a wall full of Stones cds and dvds; reasonably priced.

RED RING RECORDS: Stones vinyl.

I'll post directions and photos if there is any interest.

If you want to stay Chinese-owned hotel in Tokyo like Stones do, it'll be cool.smiling smiley

If you want to economize the budget, this must be the place.

You'll get The Tokyo Dome within five hundred steps from this hotel.
Many concert-goers from outside of Tokyo utilize this accessible hotel.

Crazy Mama (Vinyl Gang Productions Outlet) in Nishi-Shinjuku (Tokyo), Japan

























Re: Tokyo Rolling Stones shows and travel info

If driving, turn left at the light for Nishi-Shinjuku bootleg district. This intersection is about two blocks north of Shinjuku Station, which from this point of view would be located about 500 yards to the right:



Crazy Mama (7th floor) & Back Trip Records (9th floor) are located in this bldg:

















Below is Blind Faith, located about two blocks north of Crazy Mama & Back Trip.

It's on the same side of the main street as them, about 200 ft down a small side road. If you start walking north from the Seven Eleven adjacent to the Crazy Mama / Back Trip Records bldg and come to another Seven Eleven on the
left you've walked too far. You should turn back and make a right into the
next side street.

Note when I say walking north you are walking further away from your starting point at Shinjuku Station.



To get to Strangelove records, just go back to main street that Crazy Mama / Back Trip Records are on and continue walking North a block or two. There's a big yellow banana on the sign. You can't miss it.
