RoomBoss, together with JTB Hokkaido, Kutchan Town, Kutchan Tourism Association, Niseko Tourism, Niseko Resort Tourism Association and OpenTone, is currently developing a tourism-focused digital “mapplication” as part of the Japan Tourism Agency’s “Demonstration Project for Emergency Measures to Promote Tourism DX for the Realization of Highly Sustainable Tourism Destination Management”.
Alongside offering interactive restaurant, hot-spring, and activity information, the application will be connected a variety of external services to allow users to check lift operation status, offer live location-tracking of in-resort shuttle buses, and provide a variety of helpful information to visitors to Niseko in a compact and easy-to-use format.
The web application is scheduled to be operational from December 2022.
RoomBoss team members met with MLIT and representatives from 6 car transportation companies at MLIT’s Sapporo office. It was great to receive additional feedback from the transportation companies, to help shape the upcoming system RB is developing to assist them and rental car companies work together more efficiently.
A big congratulations for new team-member Alix on his successful completion of the Hokkaido Marathon last weekend.
After months of dedicated training and one final day of gruelling effort, he now takes his very sore and substantially slower legs on the road to recovery.
On an unrelated note, Alix has now moved to a ground-floor desk after reports of congestion in the 2F stairwell.
