Japan (Multiple Cities)
This project is centered around promoting the local businesses of the Keihanshichijo Area to tourists. We conducted research on the increase in tourism in recent years and the large presence of multinational corporations throughout Japan. Additionally, business owners of the Keihanshichijo Area were interviewed to gather information on the history and cultural significance of their businesses. To display our research, we created a website with an interactive map catered to tourists that exhibits the history and cultural significance of each participating business. We concluded with recommendations on expanding the amount of businesses on the map, suggestions on how to promote the map in the area, and to increase the number of languages the information is written in.
