The first order of admission to the venue will be decided by lottery at Kemoket 8. Please be advised that it will NOT be based on a first-come-first-served basis.
General participants should read the following standards of conduct throughly before coming to the event.

アイコン We will escort the first group of participants to the Second Exhibition Hall.
(If you wait in line without a catalogue, we will take you to the Hall after you get it.)

アイコン Only those who wait in multiple lines inside the Second Exhibition Hall are entitled to draw the lottery.
Participants will draw the lottery randomly line by line, and we will escort them to the First Exhibition Hall according to the lottery results.

アイコン When the Second Exhibition Hall gets jam-packed with people and you have to wait in line outside the Hall, you will be able to enter the venue after the first group.

アイコン Don’t meet up your friends at Tokyo Monorail Ryutsu Center Station, the surrounding areas and the venue between 10 am to noon. Please meet up your friends BEFORE you get to the venue.

アイコン Those with catalogues and those without them will be escorted to the venue in different ways, so they cannot get in the same line together.

アイコン You may get outside after you get in line at the Second Exhibition Hall, but you will need to get to the end of the line again. We recommend that you get your shopping done (like food or drink) before you get in line.

アイコン While the event starts and the first group of participants finish entering the venue, you will need to go through the Second Exhibition Hall to get there.
