Police arrest Chinese woman for scalping Ghibli tickets

TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Friday announced the arrest of a Chinese female forscalping tickets for the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, reports TBS News (April 3).

Since August of last year, Huang Chao is alleged to have purchased approximately 100 tickets per month for entrance to the Ghibli Museum at convenience stores and then resold them on Internet auction sites for several times their face value of 1,000 yen.

According to police, the suspect, a resident of Meguro Ward, made approximately 50,000 yen per month through the scheme.

Huang, who has been charged with violating a Tokyo public nuisance ordinance, has reportedly admitted to the allegations.  “I saw (tickets) on display on auction sites, and I thought I could do the same,” the suspect is quoted by police.

The Ghibli Museum exhibits creations from the animation company Studio Ghibli.
