    Hi,

    When we visit Tokyo (end of March/start of April 2020) we’d like to go along to a JPop concert along the lines of the one Sue Perkins visited in her BBC programme ‘Japan with Sue Perkins’

    It was a small concert in a smallish upstairs room, and I think the band may have been called Tornado.

    Do you know where we can find out about these small concerts, and how we’d be able to find one which is wheelchair accessible?

    Thanks so much,

    Cedar

    Hello,

    Can’t watch the show from outside the UK but found this clip.  Are you talking about the group here at the 12 second mark?

    OK, that is a girl “idol” group.  Many of the livehouses in Japan are in the basement and have no elevator.  Trying to find options via Twitter.

    I know the AKB live stage is accessible, but I’m pretty sure getting a ticket is via lottery…

    If you get a ticket by lottery, you need to email the staff and then this seems to be the route (though, this seems to be a few year old and things may have changed):
