No more wandering around aimlessly to find "no good" restaurants.  There is a way to find the best local restaurants in Japan even when there is no WIFI connection!  Picrumb, an easy App to guide your way, will show you pictures of street one by one to take you to the best local restaurants you don't usually find on the major streets.  

When you travel to Japan, you will not be able to go to good restaurants that the locals would go to. Why? Because you will never find the way to get there! You may have the address in your hand, but even the Japanese taxi driver wouldn't know where it is. The only person that knows the streets by the address is the person working for the post office.

 

From our interview to the travelers in Japan, "Have you been able to get to where you wanted to go?" The answer was "No! It is impossible!!" With limited access to the internet, the incomprehensible system of the address and so many non-English speakers, navigation in Japan is non-existent.

 

Three reasons why tourists in Japan often cannot get to the best local restaurants

 

So, we have prepared an old but a new way of navigation, the "Picrumb". Like Hensel and Gretel, you can follow the crumbs of picture that will never be pecked by birds, and it will take you from the station or a major site seeing spot, to the best restaurants in town! The selection of restaurants are all rated highly by the locals!
