The South Korean pop duo TVXQ, known as Tohoshinki (東方神起, Tōhōshinki) in Japan, have embarked on eight Japanese concert tours. Tohoshinki debuted in Japan as a five-member pop group in April 2005, and held their first Japanese tour, the Heart, Mind, and Soul Tour, in 2006. This was followed by the Five in the Black Tour in 2007 and the T Tour in 2008, the latter tour bringing in an estimate of 150,000 fans from 17 shows. From May to July 2009, Tohoshinki held their fourth and last Japanese tour as a quintet, The Secret Code Tour, attracting 300,000 fans. For the tour's finale, Tohoshinki performed in the Tokyo Dome, making them the third Korean music act, and the first Korean pop group, to do so.[1]

After the departure of members Jejung, Yuchun, and Junsu in 2010, remaining Tohoshinki members Yunho and Changmin did not tour again until January 2012, when they held their first concert tour as a duo, titled the Tone Tour. The tour mobilized 550,000 fans in Japan, which was the largest overseas concert held by a Korean artist at the time. The duo broke their own record the following year with their sixth Japanese concert tour, the Time Tour, which was the duo's first concert tour to visit all five of Japan's dome venues. The tour's two-day finale was in Japan's largest stadium, the Nissan Stadium, pushing the duo to be the first and only international music act to headline a concert in the stadium. The Time Tour was the highest-grossing and most-attended concert tour held by a foreign music act in Japan, mobilizing over 850,000 people and grossing US$93 million in ticket sales.[2]

Tohoshinki held their seventh Japanese tour, the Tree Tour, in the summer of 2014, bringing in an audience of 600,000 people. The duo celebrated their tenth anniversary debut in Japan with the launch of their With Tour, the duo's second 5-Dome concert tour in Japan. It was attended by over 750,000 people.[3] The With Tour was the duo's last headlining Japanese concert before taking their indefinite hiatus to enlist in South Korea's compulsory military service.[4][5]

Tohoshinki have set numerous attendance records with their concerts in Japan: they were the first Korean pop group to perform in the Tokyo Dome,[1] the first Korean music act to helm a five-Dome tour,[6] the first foreign music act to headline a concert in the Nissan Stadium,[7] and the highest-grossing foreign music act in history. From January 2012 to June 2014, the duo performed in concerts for over 2 million people in Japan, the fastest mobilization by a non-Japanese act.[8]
