My purchased ticket did not work, it could not be accepted by the system. We were a group of 10 people, but it was only mine that didn't work. We bought a new one and I was allowed to go with my family to see teanlab. It was well done by the two employees of teamlab. They got my data, which they could use if they could replace my first purchased ticket. But nothing has happened. Yet?

Great! I only couldn't understand why and was a bit angry for missing the next train, because the tickets. So, I bought them online and had a confirmation on my email. At the train station I realised that I have to download the app in order to have the tickets for entering the train station. This is not very convinient for a foreigner with limited mobile data, or expensive. Then after downloading I had the QR codes, but nevertheless the stuff there send me to the counter to get a real tickets. So, I missed the train after so many hurdles. I had time so was no problem but I see here an improvement potential. At the end I could go to the counter directly, without downloading or something else. Or best would be if you send via email tickets ready to use. Good luck!

It was easy to get the process done for my first time using it. Once got to the station, line up and show qr code to the staff to get the physical ticket. Very simple!
