When you travel in Japan, you might want to know a variety of travel information.
For example, If you want to go to a famous or poplular place by public transportation, you might want to know some transport information.
Or, If you get in trouble, you might need to call ambulance or find the location of an embassy of the country you are from.

In those circumstances, you might be able to get information on the internet via browser, but it must be eaiser to get information via smartphone app.
