This is a very convenient option that Planetyze offers. Many times we already know where we want to go, or we just want to know
more about a specific destination, but looking for it one by one can be exhausting. To make the experience of searching easier and faster, Planetyze has a “search”option where you can simply write the name of the prefecture or place you are willing to visit and the
app will show you a list of options according to your preference.


3. Find the locations in the map

Every time we visit a new destination, we are always dealing with the problem of not knowing where the attractions are located and the distances between them, which makes us difficult to organize our days in a convenient way. By this mapoption, Planetyze allows you to know the exactly spot where the places you picked are located. In this way, you can organize your tour day choosing the places which are closer to each other without losing traveling time. This will help you to decide the best sightseeing according to your staying place and also to plan a full day tour according the proximity of the destinations.


4. Spots - Full information , Pictures and Videos.

Because you need to have full information of the places you want to visit, in Planetyze you will not only find a complete description of each spot, but also the important data you need to make the best choice according to your preferences such: business hours, address, prices, contact information, web sites and all what you need to make it easier at the moment of your selection.


5. Original videos exploring Japan


When we look for destinations, we always find pictures and written texts telling us how it looks but it is never enough. To be able to make a better choice, we also need the experience, or at least to have a brief “living”moment to allow our senses to choose. That is why in the description of the locations, you can find the option to watch videos showing what it is offered in each destination, like sightseeings and activities. This option allows you to travel for a few seconds to the place you chose so you can have your first experience.



6. Write your experiences and read others users reviews.

Before choosing a place,it is important to know the experience that other people had in the past. This allows us to know different points of view and from there decide what is the best for our vacation time. In Planetyze app you can read the comments of previous tourists who visited different destinations and you can also write your own experience to help other people in the future in their own selection process.


7. Make a wishlist and plan your trip

Gifu Tour Guide - Akiko W.

Hello! My name is Akiko from Gifu prefecture. I am a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter. I like going out with my family, talking with my friends over coffee at a cozy cafe, reading books, baking bread and cake when I have time. I passed the national tour guide test in 2017 and have worked as a guide since then. I have guided in Gifu city, Seki city, Takayama city, Shirakawago , Mino city and Nagoya city. I have lived in Gifu for more than forty years. Gifu prefecture is rich in nature so you can enjoy the rural atmosphere. Gifu city has a beautiful river 'Nagara river' and Mt.Kinka which has Gifu castle on the top. You can go up the mountain on foot or use a ropeway. The view from Gifu castle is so fantastic. At the foot of the mountain , there are many places to visit such as parks, a temple having a big image of Buddha, and a street preserving the historic atmosphere. At Nagara River, you can enjoy seeing a traditional way of fishing ‘cormorant fishing’ which is thought to have started 1300 years ago. Many cafes have unique service called 'morning service' in Gifu along with Aichi In the morning (until about ten thirty or eleven) when you order a cup of tea or coffee, they serve toast and salad ! Near Gifu park , you can find a nice Japanese style cafe where you enjoy good coffee and seeing a Japanese style garden. Seki city is a small city but so famous for its cutlery. At Japanese sword museum in Seki, you can see authentic Japanese swords! Mino city next to Seki city is well known for its hand made Japanese paper 'Hon minoshi' designated as intangible cultural asset by UNESCO . Until recently it was not easy to guide guests because of COVID-19 pandemic; however the situation is getting better. Some strict rules about COVID-19 have been lifted. Please visit Gifu. I am looking forward to seeing you. Please feel free to ask me when you need information about Gifu. Thank you for reading my introduction.                                                                                                                                 

Nagasaki Tour Guide - Shonosuke S.

Hi! I'm Sho! I live in the center of Nagasaki city and work as a YouTuber, podcaster, and tour guide specializing in sharing the charms of Nagasaki. Actually, I was born and raised in Yokohama, near Tokyo, and worked for about 5 years in Tokyo. However, I fell in love with the culture and history of Nagasaki and moved here in 2020. Nagasaki has a rich history of international exchange and friendship, established about 450 years ago as an international trading port in Japan. Since then, many people from all over the world with diverse cultures and values have visited this city. I love these stories and histories of Nagasaki. Nagasaki is often associated with the sad history of the atomic bomb, which is, of course, an important part of this city's history, but Nagasaki has much more than that. I'm looking forward to introducing you to the many charms of Nagasaki!                                                                                                                                 

Fukuoka Tour Guide - Kazue I.

Hi! I am Kazue. I am from Fukuoka and live in the central city. I spent almost 20 years traveling around the world as a cabin attendant. Meeting different people, different cultures and eating local food were best things in my career. This experience definitely widened my perspective and will help me in some way when I work as a guide. Since I spent half my life outside of Japan, I noticed our culture and traditions are very unique and became more interested in historical sites in Japan. For my personal life, I am a mom of twins. It is still a hard work but I am enjoying a lot with them. We take them around Kyushu whenever possible for their fun and experience. We all love traveling after all. I am looking forward to showing you around our hometown soon!
