Ratings and Reviews
Work great for my first time in japan. No need to pay additional for viewing train timetable. I navigate like a local through the complex subway system. I wish it would vibrate on transfer stop, so I can nap like the local.
Must have for any tourist
My friend has been to Japan multiple times and still uses this app. It was so helpful during my first visit.
Essentially an average curation of listicles. The concept is great though... but you can tell the content is arbitrarily added, rather then the type of stuff that is really intriguing to foreigners beyond the typical tourist destinations.
After 21 years in Tokyo, most of the advice people seek is something more than these listicles offer.
But not bad for a version 1 app.
