About Today's Tickets Center
Today°«s Tickets Center (TTC) is the first ticket sales booth in Japan that sells day-of-show tickets for events.
We mainly sell tickets for events that take place within the Osaka-Kyoto-Kobe region.
New York's TKTS is a well-known example that uses the integrated system of selling day-of-show tickets over the counter.
TTC is run by an NPO to promote Kansais live entertainment culture.
The booth caters to both national and international visitors in Osaka, who have strong interest in the cultural arts.
