For some reason I cannot buy a ticket on ZAIKO, what should I do?

We recommend using the latest version of internet browser to purchase ticket at ZAIKO. We do not guarantee that all versions will work, especially Microsoft Internet Explorer. We suggest using Google Chrome.

You are only able to purchase tickets with personal computer or smartphone.

It is possible that payments cannot be completed due to authorization problem. In that case, please verify whether or not your credit cards are valid.

I received a 1 JPY (or similar) charge to my credit card even though I did not buy any tickets recently. What should I do?

For security reasons, some credit card authorizations require a transaction of a very small sum. The sum will be returned automatically and your credit card will not be charged.
