Trip to Tokyo   

When I first heard the news that Arashi was taking a hiatus starting next year I was very sad, although not that surprised due to their age. I have been a fan of Arashi ever since watching Hana Yori Dango in high school and falling for Matsumoto Jun. Even though I moved to Japan it is still quite difficult to get tickets to Arashi concerts. There is no such thing as fan clubs for bands in the U.S., therefore I was very confused as to why I needed to pay money and join a fan club to even be able to enter a lottery for tickets. My love for Matusjun is quite strong, however, so I did enter the fan club and bought a ticket from another member for the Arashi concert in Tokyo last March. I got a hotel room, bought plane tickets, and headed to Tokyo! While there I went to harajuku to buy goods from the official Johnnys store, which I had to line up for three hours to get in. I also went to yebisu garden place because it was a landmark in Hana Yori Dango and Hana Nochi Hare. This was all very fun and exciting, but when it came time to go to the concert as Tokyo Dome I was not able to go in! The tickets I had purchased were real tickets, however the name on them was another fan club member that I had bought them from. The Arashi security guards are quite strict and so I lost almost three hundred dollars and did not get to see Arashi perform! Although I am quite sad about this, I still feel like my trip to Tokyo was enjoyable and at least I can buy the dvd of their performance someday! Even though I may never go to an Arashi concert, I will always go near the venue to “breathe the same air!”
