As we are talking about Europeans already - are there already some information about Worlds?

What arena will it be in?

How many seats?

Is there an official website already?

When do the tickets go on sale?

Who is coming? :cold:

this is all I found out for now:

Since Worlds are going to be in Tokyo, I suppose the arena will the Yoyogi National Gymnasium. You can find more information about the stadium here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoyogi_National_Gymnasium and http://naash.go.jp/yoyogi/.

:)

I wish I could go!

I'm trying my best to go to the Europeans, but the Worlds are out of the question. I can't imagine how could I ever afford a ticket to Japan.

By saving money. ;)

Actually, just looking at prices for accommodation and food, Japan will probably be significantly cheaper than Switzerland. :shuffle:

I'd love to go. I really wanna got to Tokyo in the near future. I will try to go in June for one of the shows.

allezfred-- I can see your point, but I can find low-cost flights to Switzerland and I might stay with friends, whereas a plane ticket to Japan would cost me a year's wage ;)

How much can a trip to Japan (including tickets, food and hotel) cost? I think Portugal doesn't even fly to Japan, so basically I'd have to go to Spain and then to Japan.

Definitely interested in going and in getting tickets as part of a group (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=2657637&postcount=363).

Yoyogi seems to be much larger than the National Gymnasium, where the 2007 Worlds were held. Also, Yoyogi is closer to "major fashion action" such as Harajuku...and closer to Shibuya area, so it should be easier to find nearby hotels.

Yup, I'll be there. One foot is already there, so to speak.

I'm just waiting for the first time that a Worlds might be held in Seoul. Perhaps the next Asian host for a Worlds will be Korea (2013, 2014 or whenever)?

I found some not very expensive (well, by the standards I had set for this ;)) flights to Tokyo from Poland (not direct though, IIRC) so I'm considering going. I'm so tempted after Worlds in Torino, which was awesome!

I think I'll be there, actually I was wondering if it would be crazy enough to go to four continets too :rolleyes:
And I'm very interested in the FSU group;)

From the US, flights to Tokyo are not expensive if you purchase them in advance... Back in September I did Chicago-Tokyo round trip for $800 which is a great price - flights to Europe cost more than that. However accommodation in Tokyo is expensive as is food, not to mention the cost of the tickets themselves :(

Seriously? Hmmm. Food for thought.

However, if I had a chance to travel to Japan I would certainly not waste my time in an arena, because I've never been there yet!
