Future Changes to Terms and Conditions.
Bearer and/or Purchaser acknowledge and agree that Tokyo Night Festival/Shun Japanese Kitchen (Shun LLC), (“Event Organizer”) may modify, add, remove, supplement, amend, update or revise any of these terms and conditions, without advanced notification to Bearer or Purchaser (collectively, “Revise” or “Revision(s)”) by posting such Revisions on Event Organizer’s website, Tokyonightfest.com (the “Site”), which Revisions shall become effective immediately and, at Event Organizer’s option, relate back to the date of purchase. For the purpose of this Agreement, “Bearer” shall mean the individual who will be presenting a valid ticket at the entrance gates for entry into the Venue, and “Purchaser” shall mean the individual who will be purchasing a valid Ticket for the Event.
Upon accessing and using the Site, Purchaser and Bearer acknowledge and agree that Event Organizer may automatically collect, store and use Purchaser and/or Bearer’s information, including but not limited to, IP addresses, operating systems, referring web pages, locations, mobile carriers, devices used (i.e., cell phones, laptops, tablets, among others), search terms and cookie information (collectively, the “Derivative Data”) to help Event Organizer diagnose problems and improve the Site for user experience. In order to purchase a Ticket(s), Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that Purchaser may be required to provide personal information such as, but not limited to, name, email address, mailing address, zip code, telephone number, date of birth, financial information, age verification and/or country of residence (collectively, the “Personal Information”). Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that Event Organizer may collect, store and use the Personal Information for legitimate business purposes, such as, but not limited to, processing Purchaser’s payment, fulfilling Purchaser’s order, updating Purchaser with its order status, shipping and tracking information, responding to customer service requests, providing updated information to Purchaser respecting the Event, among others. If Purchaser or Bearer does not agree with these terms and conditions, do not purchase a ticket and exit the Site.
The purchase of a valid ticket (“Ticket(s)”) by the Purchaser and the presentation of a valid ticket by the Bearer constitutes Purchaser and/or Bearer’s revocable license to enter the Tokyo Night Festival 2022 event (the “Event”) and to access Texas Festival Grounds (the “Venue”) subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein (the “License”). Event Organizer may revoke this License at any time without additional notification or compensation to Purchaser and Bearer, including denying Bearer access to the Venue.
As a condition to gain access to the Venue and attend the Event, Bearer represents and warrants that Bearer is 18 years of age or older on the date and time listed on the front of the Ticket. A valid government issued photo identification of Bearer (“ID”) WILL be required at the Event gates in order to gain entry into the Venue. Bearer of Ticket(s) represents and warrants that the information provided on the ID presented by them is valid, true, and correct. Event Organizer reserves the right, without the obligation to refund any portion of the Ticket purchase price, to refuse entry to the Venue to any person who is not at least 18 years of age on the date listed on the Ticket. Additionally, as a condition to gain access to the Venue and attend the Event, Bearer of this Ticket hereby affirmatively, knowingly and voluntarily consents to Event Organizer swiping Bearer’s ID at the Event gates to verify, collect, store and use such personal information for any lawful purpose (collectively “Swipe”) including Bearer’s photo, legal name, date of birth, sex, address of record, telephone number and any other personal information obtained on Bearer’s ID. If any Bearer and/or Purchaser is under 18 years of age, they must have a legal guardian of adult age at all times during the time of the Event.
Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that upon the purchase of a Ticket(s), Purchaser shall be obligated to pay the face value of the Ticket(s) in addition to, a facility fee, service charges, shipping and handling charges, and taxes which shall be collected by Event Organizer to offset the costs and expenses arising from, and/or relating to, the processing of the Ticket order, the Event and/or the Venue. By proceeding to purchase a ticket pursuant to the foregoing terms and conditions, Purchaser is expressly agreeing to waive any and all potential rights, claims or entitlements Purchaser may have respecting the above referenced fees. Purchaser further acknowledges and agrees, in conformity therewith that, in no event shall Purchaser commence a chargeback dispute with Purchaser’s credit or debit card relative to the Ticket price, associated fees or services purchased hereunder, or regarding any amounts forfeited hereunder or similar charge reversal. If Purchaser does not agree with these terms and conditions, do not purchase a ticket.
Bearer’s Ticket is not redeemable for cash. Once Venue gates open, the Event, on that particular date, shall be deemed to have been delivered in its entirety and not subject to any refunds. Upon Event cancellation by Event Organizer, Event Organizer may, in its sole and absolute discretion, elect to either issue a full or partial refund to Purchaser, not issue any refunds, or reschedule the Event. Upon the cancellation of the entire Event, including, but not limited to events not within Event Organizer’s control, governmental acts, acts of God, riots, production delays, strikes, natural disasters, inclement weather (regardless of severity), or inaccessibility or unavailability of the Venue, Event Organizer may, in its sole and absolute discretion elect to either, (a) issue Purchaser a full or partial refund, (b) postpone the Event for a future date and/or (c) offer Purchaser a comparable “make good.” Delayed Venue gate openings and/or Bearer’s inability to access any parts of the Venue or Event due to Federal, state, municipal or other code regulations, Event Organizer’s policy(ies), emergency and/or partial or complete Event or stage shutdown or evacuation, performance or Event delays and inclement weather shall not entitle Purchaser (or Bearer as holder of the ticket) to refunds or future credits. Under no circumstances shall Purchaser (or Bearer as holder of the ticket) be entitled to any type of refund or exchange due to weather or governmental acts. If Event Organizer elects to issue a refund, which is in Event Organizer’s sole and absolute discretion, the Purchaser shall be refunded an amount up to the face value of the Ticket(s) only. If Event Organizer elects to reschedule the Event for a future date, Purchaser shall not be entitled to a refund. Under no circumstances shall Purchaser be entitled to a refund of any shipping, handling or other processing and service fees. At all times prior to the Event, Event Organizer reserves all rights to cancel or postpone the Event or to change the Venue, artist lineup, times and dates of the Event, or other Event details without prior notice to Purchaser or Bearer. Event Organizer shall not be responsible for any exchange rate losses to Purchaser during the order or refund process. ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL. THERE SHALL BE NO TICKET REFUNDS AND/OR TICKET EXCHANGES. This Event is “Rain or Shine” and is “Standing Room Only.”

Governing Law; Venue.
This Agreement and all claims relating to, or arising out of this Agreement or the breach thereof, shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Texas, notwithstanding any contrary choice-of-law principles.
Assignment; Entire Agreement.
Event Organizer shall, at all times, have the right to assign or delegate any or all of its rights, titles, interests or duties hereunder without notification to, or consent by, Bearer and Purchaser. Bearer and Purchaser acknowledge and agree that the terms and conditions set forth herein, as supplemented by the terms and conditions on the Site, including the Payment Plan Terms and Conditions and prohibited items list, as amended from time to time by Event Organizer with or without notification to Bearer and Purchaser, and those additional policies published at the Venue, represent the entire agreement between Bearer, Purchaser and the Event Organizer with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.
If any term or provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall not affect the otherwise valid terms or provisions or the whole of this Agreement. The applicable terms or provisions shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary to render such provision enforceable, and the rights and obligations of the parties shall be construed and enforced accordingly, preserving to the fullest permissible extent, the intent and agreements of the parties set forth herein.
Event Organizer understands that carrying props and replicas is important to many fans as part of the festival experience. Bearer with prop weapons or other items permitted below must understand that they use and carry them at their own risk and assume all risks of liability to and from anyone injured or otherwise harmed directly or indirectly by the Bearer’s acts or inaction and property damaged. Event Organizer shall not be liable for injury, harm, property damage, or other liability associated with any person`s use of any weapon, permitted, or banned, at Event.
You may not be permitted to carry any kind of functional projectile weapon. This includes individuals who possess a weapons permit or concealed weapons permit. Keep them at home. Anyone found in possession of such a weapon will immediately have their membership revoked. Individuals caught in the illegal possession of a functioning projectile weapon will be reported and turned over to the proper authorities. All other items that could be used as a weapon MUST be peace bonded.
Swords, Axes, Spears, Pikes, Staves, etc. should be made out of wood, PVC, foam, plastic, cardboard, or paper. ABSOLUTELY NO METAL weapons will be permitted on festival grounds.
Weapons should never be waved around in a manner that may be construed as use of the weapon (this is considered brandishing).
Brandishing any weapon-like item is NOT permissible. Brandishing is defined as drawing, exhibiting, or using any weapon whatsoever in a rude, angry, or threatening manner or using a weapon in any fight or quarrel.
Gun replica or other replica projectile weapons should not be pointed at anyone at any time. Replica pistols need to remain in a holster; replica rifles need to be slung.
Paddles (all varieties-including “yaoi paddles”) are not allowed.
No functioning projectile weapons or props will be allowed. This goes for Airsoft, Nerf, bows and arrows, pellet guns, etc.
Weapons such as Airsoft, Nerf, etc. may be permitted IF and ONLY IF the tip of the guns are obviously orange AND the gun is no longer capable of firing projectiles. This means that leaving the CO2 canister at home does not count as disabling the airsoft gun. Barrels must be filled and made solid, firing mechanisms must be removed, triggers must be removed, bows must be without string, or something along these same lines to make the weapon incapable of use without doubt.
Weapons check will ultimately have the last say with whether or not a weapon is deemed too dangerous to be permitted onto festival grounds.
Exotic weapons will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Do not bring weapons that Event Staff, Venue Security, Hotel security, Houston Police Dept., and HPD officers cannot tell are fake from ten feet away.
If any weapons are purchased at the Event, then they must be kept wrapped and then immediately removed from the Event following purchase.
Drawing a weapon in the Event space, including parking lots, may result in immediate revocation of the Event membership. Keep in mind, police will assume all drawn weapons are functional, and will act accordingly.
These rules are for the safety of all participants and the safety of Event. We are posting and enforcing these to protect participants from physical and/or legal harm. The rules are NOT open to interpretation nor will they be a point of argument. The rules are final and if they are broken, it can and will result in badge being forfeited and violators may not be allowed to participate in any future Shun LLC events.
Shun LLC. And Tokyo Night Festival have the final say over the weapons policy.
