JNTO launches official travel app

The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) has officially launching the "Japan Official Travel App," its tourism app for iOS and Android devices.

Offered in English, Korean, and Chinese, the app is aimed at international tourists traveling to Japan and offers information on tourism destinations nationwide, including rural areas, transport information and essential information, in multiple languages in the event of an emergency or disaster.

It acts as a comprehensive tourism portal offering everything a visitor to Japan may need in one place. Drawing on both JNTO and Japan Tourism Agency's tourism information, as well as in collaboration with the various services offered by private-sector firms, the app is designed to improve the overall travel experience in Japan.

JNTO plans to partner with other service providers and add content to the app in order to make travel in Japan a fun, stress-free experience for people everywhere.
