A must-have!

This app is an absolute godsend, especially when it comes to navigating the train systems. Really, getting around in general is much easier. It points out nearby stations(including which ones use JR), activities and restaurants, and I’d be a pretty well-off traveler if I had a dollar for every time this app saved me from getting lost. Highly recommended, especially for newcomers!

The best to survive

I used this while on my trip to Japan. It was the best and the most useful app I could have gotten. It helped me a lot for transportation and making sure I knew the schedules for the trains!!!

It's okay.

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.
