TOKYO, June 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SeaCalls Inc. has released Tripfriends, an SNS application dedicated to introducing tour guides to tourists, which the company has developed based on the concept that "Traveling alone is no longer lonely."
Tripfriends, fully compatible with Android and iOS, attracts many keen travelers, helping them find nice food at places visited, experience Japan's culture and look for partners to enjoy various activities.
1. Search for tour guides in advance
Tripfriends allows inbound travelers to look for local tour guides in advance. Those who find favorite tour guides can send messages to them and inform them of the details of tourist spots they want to visit or activities they want to experience. The application helps tourists enjoy impressive sightseeing by interacting with locals, which they cannot enjoy simply by reading travel guidebooks.
2. Search for nearby guides while traveling
Tripfriends also allows inbound tourists to search for guides staying nearby at places visited. Users can ask such guides to show them the way to tourist spots they want to visit when they get lost, or to dine with them when they feel lonely to have dinner alone.
3. Upload photos
Tripfriends allows users to make albums of their travel memories by uploading snap shots taken while traveling. Users can comment on photos uploaded by their friends or get "likes" on their photos, thereby sharing information with many people from various countries and interacting with each other.
Tripfriends allows people living in Japan to guide inbound tourists visiting their towns while tourists can ask people living at places they visit on overseas trips to guide them.
Tripfriends is recommended to people who would say:
- I like traveling alone but would sometimes like somebody's company
- I want to interact with locals
- I want more people to know about my town
- I want a social networking site where users love traveling
- I want to make an album of my travel memories and share it with my friends
- I love hanging out with people more than anything
