HOW TO PURCHASE TICKETS

Tickets can be purchased via our website www.wbstudiotour.jp. All persons wishing to visit the Studio Tour must purchase Tickets in advance and pre-book the time and date of their entrance into the Studio Tour.

Payment must be made in full at the time of buying a Ticket either by credit card or debit card (including Apple Pay and Google Pay). We do not accept cheques or cash. Please speak to your card issuer for confirmation of timing of payment settlement from your bank account.

Upon purchase of a Ticket from our website, you will receive an email with a Ticket reference number (“Confirmation Email”).

This Confirmation Email constitutes your proof of purchase. Please check that you have received this Confirmation Email following purchase. We take no responsibility should you not receive this Confirmation Email due to reasons outside of our control e.g. junk or spam filtering.

It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of the details on your Confirmation Email or Tickets (as appropriate) as mistakes cannot always be rectified. Please keep your Confirmation Email and Tickets in a safe place as we cannot be held responsible for any Tickets that are lost or stolen.

The ticket sale and purchase agreement between you and us shall become effective at the time you receive a Confirmation Email with a Ticket reference number from us .

Only Tickets purchased directly from us or one of our authorised distributors are valid for admission. Tickets purchased from unauthorised third parties, including online auction sites, are not valid for entry.

 

TICKET DELIVERY

Tickets will be sent to you as a PDF attachment to the email address provided to us during the booking procedure (“e-ticket“).

E-Ticket(s) will be sent to you as a PDF attachment approximately at the same time as you receive your Confirmation Email. The e-ticket must include the same Ticket reference number included in your Confirmation Email.

There are limited circumstances where you can choose to collect your Tickets on your arrival at the Studio Tour from the Admissions Office in which case you will need the Confirmation Email containing your Ticket(s) reference number together with the card used to pay for the Ticket(s). Please contact Customer Services here for more details.

 

ENTERING THE STUDIO TOUR

For entry with e-tickets, you will need to show the e-ticket, including its barcode and your Ticket reference number, to be scanned by a member of the Studio Tour staff.

For entry with physical Tickets collected by you at the Studio Tour (not e-tickets printed in advance of your visit), you will need to show the physical Ticket to be scanned by a member of the Studio Tour staff.

We may also request sight of the card used to pay for the Tickets at the Studio Tour entrance for purchase verification purposes. Failure to show this may result in refusal of entrance to the Studio Tour.

We reserve the right to amend an Allocated Entry Time once it has been issued to you but we will endeavour to notify you as soon as we become aware that this is necessary. Should we have to significantly amend your Allocated Entry Time (i.e. by four (4) hours or more), you may choose to accept the new Allocated Entry Time, arrange another mutually agreeable Allocated Entry Time with us or cancel the Ticket by contacting our Customer Services team here whereupon we will refund you all the monies you have paid to us for the Ticket(s) but no further compensation will be paid.
