Peach Aviation Ltd has begun sales of tabikuji (lucky trip fortunes), a new kind of travel in which customers do not know where they will be going until they draw a destination.
Fortunes are available at four well-known lottery ticket offices in Tokyo: Nishi Ginza Chance Center (Ginza, Tokyo), Yaesu Underground Mall Chance Center (Yaesu, Tokyo), Tachikawa Chance Center (Tachikawa, Tokyo), and Tachikawa Lumine Chance Center (Tachikawa, Tokyo).
Available for a limited time, tabikuji are completely different from the usual travel lottery tickets purchased from capsule vending machines. Customers take a numbered stick from a wooden barrel modeled after an omikuji fortune, and receive their fortune from a sales clerk at the lottery ticket office. Each tabikuji contains an exchange code for 6,000 yen worth of Peach Points, which can be used to purchase a Peach flight to the designated destination, and a mission that will lead to luck at the destination.
There are 11 possible domestic destinations departing out of Tokyo (Narita), including Memanbetsu, Kushiro, Sapporo (New Chitose), Osaka (Kansai), Fukuoka, Oita, Nagasaki, Miyazaki, Amami, Okinawa (Naha), and Ishigaki. There is plenty of time before the Peach Points expire, so you can travel according to your own schedule.
In addition, all tabikuji come with a Follow-up Fortune that customers can enjoy after their trip. Follow-up Fortunes consist of assigned lottery numbers, one of which will be the winner of an assortment of 100,000 yen worth of lottery tickets selected by Fukui-san, a staff member at Tachikawa Chance Center whose name contains the Japanese word for “luck.” The lottery will take place on Dec 1, and the winning number will be published on the tabikuji website.
Tabikuji will also go on sale at chance centers in Osaka and Nagoya on Aug 17.© Japan Today
