Didn't know it was multiple choice.......Family mart for fried chicken and lawsons for soccer tix
Lawson, hands down. I've figured out how to pay my bills and work the Loppi machine (and magazine) for the most part, except that I haven't figured out how to add my name yet when I'm buying soccer or baseball tickets. Maybe before I leave I'll be able to do it.
Thanks to Lawson, I was able to get tickets to the Gamba-Kawasaki match a couple of weeks back. Best game I've ever been to.
Is this thread related to soccer?!
Lawson and 7-11 are OK, but I go to am/pm and Family Mart more often. I reserve tickets for matches and print them out at Family Mart.
yes, it is. you can buy soccer game tickets and winning eleven series at the convenies
Damn! You guys in Japan are so lucky that you could purchase tickets to the matches at your local convenience stores!! I'm jealous. Here in the states, I could only purchase soccer tickets at the fee-happy Ticketmaster (those bastards ) or by calling the FO. They need to incorporate your ticket purchase system over here in the US.
Family mart for the beer and chicken.
Lawson for bread and those chips with the mexican dude on the front that ripped off pringles
and in france is worse need to go to the stadium or buy online to the official shop.
in thailand is amazing i was living in a place close to rajamangala stadium u have 4 7eleven and 4 or 5 family mart on the same street is the war
Hey, this is one of the wonderful things about the konbini in Japan (and what you say about Ticketmaster is the reason we SJ fans call it TicketBastard). You can do a lot more than purchase tickets; you can pay bills, buy a very decent meal, and even use the john. Try that in the U.S. 7-11 (all the rest are good, however) was a lifesaver yesterday when I was out on one of my long walks. Oh, BTW, your poll forgot Sunkus, also a favorite.
Looks like Circle K was left off too...do they have a ticket-purchasing system too?
circle k and sunkus are the same over here........didn't see hotspar
7-11 is taking over the entire country now
I may be wrong about this, but I was under the impression that all konbini's have ticket sales (they're pretty competitive). BTW, those tickets are not just for soccer matches, you can buy tickets for just about any performance or event imagineable (as long as it's in Japan! )
You can reserve tickets for concerts, sports, theaters, and kabuki etc. at ticket centers like Ticket Pia, CN Play Guide, Entertainment Plus (e+), and Lawson Tickets. These companies do business with conveninence stores.
Ticket Pia -- Family Mart, Circle K-Sunkus, 7-11
CN Play Guide -- am/pm, View Plaza (travel agency of JR East)
Lawson Tickets -- Loppi (Lawson Online Shopping) machines
e+ -- online ticketing only
Lawson and Familiy Mart sell tickets for highway buses, trains, airplanes, and other modes of transportation. This is convenient!

You should never buy from Ticketbastard, they have charged me prices that are criminal.
That being said - I like Popura because everyone in Hiroshima goes to popura, especially cause they put fresh rice into your bento. I do love Lawson for the soccer and concert tickets, but I have to say Family Mart because there was one across the street from my school, and I snuck over there so many times to eat curry pan, nikuman, koroke, and what not.
thanks a lot
