JapanTourist.jp is a comprehensive resource for information about Japan. It is a community of contributors and as such is continually evolving and growing. This means that not all subjects and categories are complete, but as with any active community, the information resource gets deeper and broader with time.
If you are a visitor looking for information about Japan, JapanTourist is easy to use.
There are many ways to contribute to JapanTourist.
First, you can register as a Casual User to receive an account that allows you freedom of comment and access. Our commenting and rating features are similar to other user-review websites, but with JapanTourist you will also earn points that can be used in our MetroRewards store.
Second, you can register as a Regular Contributor. In addition to the Casual User's capabilities, our staff will contact you directly about submitting articles and/or photographs to JapanTourist. The rate of MetroRewards points you earn will be accelerated, and you can make a name for yourself while helping us to promote Japan as a fantastic travel destination.
Third, in the future you will be able to sign on as a Professional Contributor. As JapanTourist grows, we will be looking for professional writers, photographers, videographers, and more. Check back for openings in the coming months.
Finally, you can join our front-line team as a Regional Partner. Contact us about the opportunities available to join our Japan-wide network and become the face of JapanTourist for your prefecture. Regional Partners work to improve their local communities at a grassroots level, connecting with local Japanese and foreign communities.
