Toshi. NET Registration is Open to Over Seas Fans!

I was checking out Toshi's official site today, and I decided to look at the Toshi.NET section.


For those of you who don't know, Toshi.NET is Toshi's fan club. I believe it's mainly internet and cell phone based but you get a lot of perks and there are two types of membership.

Standard Membership includes:
-Videos viewable only by members.
-Exclusive messages from Toshi via email (called ToshiNET email magazine).
-The ability to buy tickets for Toshi's solo concerts before they go on sale.
-The ability to buy Toshi goods.
-The ability to view and download Toshi digital photos (they're still working on this feature).
-The opportunity to get together with other Toshi.NET members and Toshi after his solo concerts.

The admission fee for the standard membership is 2,000 Yen, and the annual membership fee is 6,000 Yen. If you want to upgrade to the premium membership it's possible, but you won't get a refund for your annual membership fee so be sure to choose wisely before signing up.

Premium Membership includes:
-Videos viewable only by members.
-Exclusive messages from Toshi via email (called ToshiNET email magazine).
-The ability to buy tickets for Toshi's solo concerts before they go on sale.
-The ability to buy Toshi goods.
-The ability to view and download Toshi digital photos (they're still working on this feature).
-The opportunity to get together with other Toshi.NET members and Toshi after his solo concerts.
-Access to internet radio (which includes videos) and to special digest videos recorded by Toshi during his solo activities.
-Access to private images and such of Toshi. (Like only premium users can see this photo sort of thing.)

Since Toshi.NET is Toshi's fan club, don't expect updates about X Japan all the time. Toshi's solo activities are the main focus but members will be able to get information or will be able to purchase tickets to X Japan's events. Also, you may not be notified of any changes that will be made to Toshi.NET's services before they are made, so please keep that in mind when you sign up. The admission fee for premium membership is 2,000 Yen and the annual membership fee is 10,000 Yen.


If you think the perks are worth the price, you can sign up by filling out the application form. A friend of mine signed up last night so I was able to bear witness to the process, so I am going to post in the community how to go through each page of signing up.

As for if you should join or not, it seems like they're still working on putting everything into place online. At the moment, premium members are able to view videos that the general public and standard members can't and are privy to how to buy tickets for upcoming X Japan events (the hide Memorial Summit is the most recent event listed). Both memberships have access to the Toshi Official Online Store.
