Incredibly helpful for getting around Japan. If you’re just looking for train times, it has a better sense than HYPERDIA of which sections of lines are/are not affected by service advisories, and it also seems to provide more optimized routings. Even more impressively, this app integrates bus and ferry times - and has fares and bus stop numbers/names too. A journey from a Kirishima ryokan to Shimabara Port that took me hours to piece together from the various local Japanese transportation services’ sites takes a few minutes to find in this app. Pretty amazing.
The amount of information given in this app is wonderful. Location of a.t.m’s, money exchange, free WiFi, and closest stations is great. Travel route are better than the app that my native japanese friend has, with multiple routes to choose from and distinct JR pass routes. Estimation on how much non JR trains cost and taxi travel is spot on. I’ve been to Japan several times and this app made this trip even easier. I utilized all its features on a daily basis. I thank the developers for a well thought out and very usable application.
You can optimise for JR pass routes on this app, specially the Shinkansen Bullet trains you can take for free - Google Maps keeps suggesting more expensive options which wasn’t super useful. Sometimes it helps to check Google Maps to see which station is closer to your actual destination...so a map split view would be kinda nice right inside this app and something I might be willing to pay for. All the train stations are in English but I would have also liked if the local Bus stops which were often in Japanese were also in English. Google maps suffers from the same problem so they’re doing the best with the data they have I guess. This something we had to get by with by asking people in Japan around - who are also perhaps the best humans I’ve ever come across.
Recommended by a Japanese friend of mine, this app turned out to be insanely crucial while I traveled in Japan. At places like Tokyo the metro network can be daunting, but this app tells you how to get from one station to another, which track, what time, and even which car you should be in so that transferring to another line is as efficient as possible. Use this when you are in Japan!
I gave this app 3 stars because numerous times, the stores I wanted to find/shop at came up with no information. This is disappointing because they immediately appeared when I googled the same store name with all the information including a map and directions. While other portions of the app are fine, for me if I want to go somewhere and this app can’t even tell me it exists I’m sorry to say it’s usefulness is closer to a 1 star... especially considering I had to pay $7.95!!!
