Ueno Joshi Tour Group looks to Crowdfunding to help create a tour perfect for visitors during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics
TOKYO, Aug, 27 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - With the amount of people that are visiting Japan, especially Tokyo, increasingly slowly as the Tokyo Olympics approaches, many different companies and groups are attempting to find solutions to the problem of the influx of tourists that the country faces.
An all-female tour guide group, Ueno Joshi, is looking to create a tour with the help of both Japanese and foreigners via a unique crowdfunding campaign. The campaign launched on August 26th 2019 and runs until September 24th 2019, and is looking to raise 1,000,000 yen (USD 9,500) in order to help with promotion costs, tour creation, and excursion fees.
The main base of operations and the area that the group tours around is Ueno, in the northern part of Tokyo. The group currently offers special tailor-made guides for their customers, with an end result of holding enough tours to help with the production of the perfect tour. They hold several different types of tours, including one with accompaniment in full Yukata or Kimonos.
The main idea behind the tour is to change the way of thinking about tours as just going to places and trying food, and more looking at the charms of meeting new local people and seeing a whole new point of view. This creates an even better experience, and lets the tourist have a bigger memory of not just the places but the warmth and friendliness of the Japanese people as well.
One main return that is featured in the project is access to a special Facebook Group, where the tour guides will offer advice on your trip to Tokyo, as well as looking to bring people's opinions and ideas together to create the best tour possible.
The project can be found at:
- Time Period: August 26th 2019 - September 24th 2019
- Project Target: 1,000,000 Yen
- Returns: Items are being prepared such as access to a special Facebook Group which will give the user support on their travel around Tokyo as well as tours.
