How to join InSomnia Japan Fanclub

Before you sign up

 

This guide will walk you through the registration and login process on the official Japanese fanclub website. However, before you sign up for the Japanese fanclub, there are a few things that you need to know.

  1. The Japanese fanclub is a monthly subscription service. You will be paying 550¥/month(after taxes) to access fanclub exclusive content. You will be able to cancel at any time, however.
  2. As the service is based on a monthly subscription model, you need a credit card or a check card that is capable of making international payments (i.e. Visa / Mastercard)
  3. You are not allowed to share fanclub exclusive content outside. This is specified in article 7 of the terms of service.
  4. The content hosted on the fanclub website is not meant to be downloadable. As such, this guide will not go through downloading any of the content accessible on the site.

If you feel sure that the Japanese fanclub membership is worth the payment after reading the above, proceed with the registration.
