Time: Live Tour 2013 (stylized as Tohoshinki Live Tour 2013 ～TIME～), also known as the Time Tour, was the sixth Japanese concert tour (tenth overall) by South Korean pop duo Tohoshinki, in support of their sixth Japanese studio album Time (2013). The tour visited all five of Japan's major concert Domes and the Nissan Stadium, the largest seated stadium in Japan.
One of the highest-grossing concert tours of the year, it grossed over US$92.6 million from 18 shows and earned US$17.4 million more from merchandise sales, bringing the total gross to US$110 million.A sell-out, the tour attracted over 890,000 people from 18 shows and an additional 30,000 people from cinema screenings, a dramatic increase from the 550,000 fans who attended their last nationwide tour in 2012.
The Time Tour broke several attendance records in the country; it was the first Dome tour held by non-Japanese Asian performers and the fourth held by international artists in Japan. Among Japanese-singing artists, Tohoshinki were the sixteenth artists to do so. The tour was the highest-attended tour by an international music act in Japan. The duo were also the first international artists to headline a concert at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama. Tohoshinki have said on their first five-Dome tour, "It's a dream come true."
The special site for the tour was official launched on April 18, 2013. Official goods were released on the same day as well.
We're very happy that the five-dome tour we've dreamed of going on since our debut is finally going to happen. We'll work hard to prepare great music and performances, so please look forward to it, and we hope to see your support and interest.

Dome, Kyocera Osaka Dome, and the Tokyo Dome, consisting of twelve dates over a period of three months. An S.M. representative said, "Any concert hall with a ‘dome’ in it is a place where only the best get to stand. This proves just how big TVXQ is in Japan."On February 21, 2013, four more dates were added to their five-Dome tour, including one extra performance at the Nagoya Dome, two at the Kyocera Dome and one at the Tokyo Dome, increasing the expected to attend to more than 700,000.
