JAL map of Tokyo launched online

7 Comments

Japan Airlines (JAL) has launched on nearly all of the English-language country/region sites of www.jal.com a JAL map of Tokyo. It is the first time JAL has launched an English version of the map.

The map comprises a total of 10 maps, including bird's eye views of central Tokyo and the surrounding area, plus more detailed maps of the major tourist areas of the city, from Akasaka to Ueno. Visitors can easily explore Tokyo, jumping from one map to another, zooming in and out of them, and moving all around them using a special navigation function.

This easy-to-use useful site contains a wide selection of regularly updated information on Tokyo shopping, dining, hotels, and sightseeing. Concise descriptions, together with addresses, telephone numbers and website accompany each piece of information.

Information on around 130 restaurants serving Japanese, Asian and Western cuisine can be found on the site, making it easy for visitors to the city to quickly find a suitable place to dine.

The shopping section provides information on 70 shops, department stores and shopping areas which offer a wide range of products from traditional Japanese crafts to the latest fashion and electrical goods.

Not only can visitors to the JAL map find out information on about 100 hotels located in Tokyo and the surrounding area, but they can also check room availability, room rates and even make a booking.

JAL maps in Japanese have now been created for some 34 individual cities worldwide, providing Japanese travelers with a useful source of information for these destinations.

The quote yesterday wanted foreigners to go beyond the major cities to do their sightseeing. And JAL gives non-Japanese reading foreigners a map of the major cities. Nice map with lots of information, though. Thanks for the link, efftta.
