No.1 A sightseeing

The popular beautiful snowscape which lead you very fantastic view!

When we asked them the impressive spots, all of them answered the place
with the view of snow. The white and shiny snow. It doesn't snow much in
Taiwan, so they will be excited with the snowy space. A particularly popular
spot of snowscape is the Gassho-zukuri in Shirakawago.
The Gassho-zukuri is a Japanese architectural style, and it is said that the
term of Gassho-zukuri came from the fact that the shape of the roof
resembles that of praying hands. It is designated as a world heritage,
and more than 210,000 foreign tourists visit there every year. You may
enjoy the fantastic scenery such as white mountains that spreads behind
Gassho-zukuri, and snow falling silently in the air. You will also relish that scenery and sightseeing at Matsumoto-jo Castle (a national treasure),
hot springs, and "Bokka no Sato" where you can spend time with animals.

No.2 "Omotenashi"

The spirit of “hospitality” & “give-and-take”

Some of visitors are surprised at polite response from Japanese. "The spirit
of hospitality" have taken root in Japan. "The hospitality(Omotenashi)" is the mind of concerning for other, and warmhearted treating and serving to
guests. You feel that spirit in many occasions such as hotels and restaurants.
Some of the Taiwanese tourists said that they want to teach Japanese
manner and spirit to their children.
Also, there is a big difference about the traffic manners. It is normal to
Japanese that people drive with giving way to others. Japanese tried not to
bother anyone and follow order. Let's find some Japanese habit and culture
in any spots.

No.3 Tourism websites

All we need is fulfilling tourism website

What we need during travel is the information of the tourist spots such as
weather forecast, transportation system, restaurant, and toilet. Some of the
tour come with tour guides, but information of the destination is necessary
in advance.
There's a great demand for website dedicated to tourism information.
Moreover, the information such as weather forecast and navigation is
necessary in real time when you get there. Tocheck those information,
wi-fi is required, which is one of the big task in Japan.

No.4 Souvenirs

The typical souvenir in Central Japan

When it comes to travel, what we want is souvenir. The characteristic
regional souvenir, snacks, and Japanese brand are popular. In Central
Japan, each region has its own characteristic; "Sarubobo" in Hida Takayama,
craft-work in Magome, and Japanese confectionery such as Kintsuba cakes
and Rakugan.
Especially, snacks are perfect for souvenir, since they are wrapped neatly
even little ones.
Japanese product have a reputation for safety and trustfully; medicinal
product such as eye-drop and digestive medicine, and beauty product such
as hand cream and eye mask are popular.
Some of the interviewee bought too much gifts for their friends, and their
suitcases were packed full. People fascinated by Japanese subculture are
increasing. One of the Japanese characters called "Rirakkuma" gains
popularity in Taiwan. Some of those character products sold only locally,
which gives tourists one more pleasure.
