About this app

ekinote is a free app that guides you through the charms of all train stations and surrounding towns throughout Japan. With the posting function, it will continue to grow more and more attractive.

When you think, "I'm going to that station next time, but what kind of places are there around it?" or "It's a station I always use, but I want to know more in-depth information!", you can call up the station you want to visit and find out about sightseeing and gourmet information. -You can check information on shopping, transportation, etc. with the ekinote app. Stations you discover can be added to your favorites in "My Notes." Whether it's your usual station or town, or the station and town you're about to visit, you're sure to find a ``serendipity (*)'' charm that excites you. Also, since you can post photos and text, you can tell everyone who will be visiting the station about the attractions of the station and town that you would like to recommend.
*Serendipity: Meeting by chance or discovering something unexpected.

\Currently on trial/
We are currently conducting demonstration experiments while improving the app so that it can be a useful app for everyone!
We collaborate with companies and organizations across the country, including Hiroshima Electric Railway, Sotetsu Group, Astram Line (Hiroshima Rapid Transit), Kamakura City Tourism Association, Enoshima Electric Railway, Chikugo City Tourism Association, and Nose Electric Railway, to improve the station and town. We are constantly transmitting our charms! Everyone, please keep posting about the charms of your local station or the station you're going to! !
