Line to receive reservation tickets to enter Toyota Pavilion. This is where you line up to obtain a reservation ticket (seiri-ken) to enter the Toyota Pavilion.51 viewsThis is where you line up to obtain a reservation ticket (seiri-ken) to enter the Toyota Pavilion. You have to line up a few hours before they start distributing the tickets because the number of available tickets is limited. Once there are enough people standing in line, they refuse any more people to que up. When the time comes to give out the tickets, the line advances quickly and soon disappears.
