TOKYO, Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NTT Resonant, Inc. is proud to announce that starting on February 9, "goo Shuo!", the smartphone app for Oshiete!goo's Chinese language (traditional characters) Q&A community for international tourists traveling to Japan, is available for download.

Traditional Chinese:
Simplified Chinese:

In the number of international tourists visiting Japan, tourists from Taiwan rank third after mainland China and South Korea, with a recorded 3.67 million visitors (*1). Additionally, approximately 80% of tourists to Japan from Taiwan are repeat visitors (*2). The majority of these tourists come to Japan after getting tourism information from television programs and travel company websites. The need for detailed tourism information on lodging facilities, sightseeing manners, changing transportation information, etc. is rising, but traditional media like television are not able to meet this demand.

On goo Shuo!, a web service started in March of 2016, users can easily exchange information in a question-and-answer format, allowing them to gather necessary and detailed tourism information on Japan. Now with this Chinese (traditional characters) smartphone app, tourists from Taiwan can use goo Shuo! even at their Japanese destination and readily ask questions on their minds and easily obtain any necessary tourism information.

1. Service Overview

A. Questions that come up while in Japan can be answered quickly:

Tourists from Taiwan can easily use the application to ask questions even in Japan, and via information exchange among users, can quickly find the answers to their queries.
