Lump-sum tourism service on smartphones November 20, 17:15 on a demonstration experiment on the Izu Peninsula
JR East and Tokyu, etc. are demonstrations of services that allow you to make reservations and purchase tickets for transportation and tourist facilities such as railways and buses in a lump on the Izu Peninsula in Shizuoka Prefecture, a popular tourist destination. I decided to start the experiment.
This experiment will be conducted on a dedicated WEB site from 1st of next month to 10th of March next year for those who want to tour the Izu Peninsula in Shizuoka Prefecture in cooperation with JR East and Tokyu.
This site can be found on smartphones, allowing you to efficiently search for routes around tourist destinations by combining various means of transportation such as trains, buses, shared taxis, and bicycle rentals. I can do it.
In addition, by purchasing tickets for tourist facilities and hot springs in advance on the site, users can enjoy traveling and sightseeing smoothly just by showing their smartphone screens.
The site also supports English and Chinese, and we want to increase the number of foreign tourists.
Mr. Junji Takahashi, managing director of JR East, says, “There are various mechanisms for making cashless, but I want to attract travelers by working together in the region.”
