Japan Snow Guide Free iOS Mobile App Available Now

Outdoor Japan Media and MapMotion launch Japan Snow Guide mobile app, the new comprehensive English-language guide to Japan’s snow resorts and winter sports in Japan.

Tokyo, Japan, January 19, 2014 --(PR.com)-- MapMotion KK (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Craig Will) and Outdoor Media Japan Inc. (Chigasaki-shi, Kanagawa, CEO: Gardner Robinson) are pleased to announce the release of the Japan Snow Guide mobile app, Japan’s first comprehensive English-language guide to Japan’s ski resorts and snow country. The free app is available for download from Apple’s iTunes App Store for iPhone & iPad at https://itunes.apple.com/app/id781360770

The Japan Snow Guide app helps people get out and enjoy Japan’s amazing snow country, resorts and winter hospitality. Japan is blessed with a mountainous terrain that receives some of the heaviest snowfalls in the world and is dotted with natural hot springs. Inside the app, users will find information on Japan’s top resorts, objective resort spotlights, original editorial on featured destinations and activities, event listings, real-time accommodation booking in resort areas, weather conditions, highlighted local services and regular lift ticket giveaways and other promotions during the season.

MapMotion and Outdoor Japan Media have collaborated to bring end users a compelling mobile experience – a single app that lets users plan their trip, get to their destination and enjoy the local scene. Comprehensive content from Outdoor Japan Media, publishers of Traveler magazine, Outdoor Japan Online and the annual Japan Winter Sports Guide is included, from ski resort and trail information to original feature stories and winter event listings.

MapMotion has integrated this information into the mobile app, adding GPS-enabled map views, directions, bookmarking and trail map downloads. The app also integrates weather content, a comprehensive shop list for travelers who need to pick up last-minute winter gear, the ability to book accommodation directly from the app and the option of receiving push notifications about lift ticket giveaways and hyper-local deals related to the resort a user is visiting.

The app targets the growing market of inbound travelers from overseas who are interested in experiencing Japan’s winter wonderland, as well as the international community living in Japan. Japan’s countryside can be a challenging destination for inbound travelers. Japan Snow Guide helps solve this with comprehensive English-language content and GPS enabled map views and directions. For visitors from overseas, who often have limited data connectivity, most of the app content is also viewable offline, including Japanese language addresses to show to local taxi drivers.

Features Include:
- Resort information
- Mountain information
- Original trail maps, and downloadable resort trail maps
- Weather
- Events
- Featured resorts and services
- Real-time accommodation bookings
- Original feature stories and articles
- Shop List for finding great winter gear throughout Japan
