We don’t usually like asking other people for help with little things Or if you find someone appearing to need some assistance, telling a stranger can be difficult. You might appreciate a helping hand, but it’s hard to pluck up the courage to ask. It’s great to be able to ask someone if you’re lost, for example, or you need help with your luggage. This is especially true if you’re a traveler, a foreigner visiting Japan, an older person or a person with a disability.
That’s why we’ve developed , the convenient app that makes it easier for you to give someone help and to receive help.

It’s so easy!

Use your smartphone to ask for help if you feel awkward asking directly!

You sometimes need a bit of courage to speak up and ask for help on the street or on the train. May ii makes it easy for you!

Japan is renowned for its hospitality.

Let’s make our foreign visitors feel welcome!

With the major event coming up in 2020, the number of visitors to Japan is increasing. If someone at the station or in the street needs assistance or can’t read a sign, why not do a good deed and give them a helping hand?

Keep a count of your “Thank you” (Arigatō).

The more people show their appreciation for your good deeds, the more motivated you feel!

You get a good feeling when someone thanks you for your help, right? A “Thank you” (Arigatō) can brighten up your day.
