PMF Online Box Office: tickets can now be purchased from outside Japan!

As part of our continuing effort to more effectively meet the needs of the increasing number of listeners who attend PMF concerts from outside Japan, we will soon launch the PMF Online Box Office.
The Box Office system will be in English and will allow for advance payment by credit card before claiming tickets in person on the day of the concert. Soon you will be able to make reservations with a PC or smart-phone any time, and from anywhere in the world! (Residents of Japan will also have access to this system.)
We look forward to sharing the convenient new PMF Online Box Office with you!

PMF Website Top Page Renewal

The top page of the PMF website has been redesigned with a fresh new look. Each time you visit the page, 1 of 3 videos (selected randomly) will playback automatically.
These new videos, which make use of technology called "motion graphics," were made by Mr. Katsuya Ishida, a Senior Assistant Professor at the Sapporo City University School of Design. Enjoy the excitement of PMF expressed in an entirely new aesthetic!
