Tickets will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. for a special exclusive concert performance by Japanese idol group Bishonen, set for the evening of Sunday, Aug. 11 at Koyasan Buddhist Temple in Little Tokyo.

Consisting of members Ryuga Sato, Yuto Nasu, Hidaka Ukisho, Naoki Fujii, Taisho Iwasaki and Issei Kanasashi, Bishonen is one of the latest groups from pop music powerhouse Johnny and Associates. The production company has dominated the boy-band realm in Japan for more than 50 years, with groups including Hikaru Genji, SMAP, Tokio, Kat-Tun and Arashi.

Bishonen will perform at Koyasan, where Rimban Taido Kitagawa presided and helped to establish Boy Scout Troop 379, a unit that remains active to this day. Kitagawa’s son Johnny and daughter Mary went on to create the company that has made huge stars of dozens of young singers.

The Aug. 11 show will be the U.S. debut for Bishonen, and a tribute to Johnny – who was born in Los Angeles in 1931 and passed away last month in Tokyo.

Bishonen will also make an appearance at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center a day earlier, on Aug. 10, as part of the “Sunset on the Plaza” series. The show is set for 5 p.m. at the JACCC Plaza and is free. The group is also expected to appear in the Nisei Week Grand Parade Aug. 11.

Tickets for the Koyasan Temple show at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 11 are extremely limited, and at only $20 are sure to sell quickly. For tickets, visit–los-angeles/koyasan.
