Japan seems to constantly come up with new and innovative ideas to assist foreign visitors.

TOKYO —International Cross-Cultural Exchange (ICCE) has launched its guide matching service, “Japan Tour Guide (JTG),” on smartphones. 
For this guide service, the guest (tourist) fills out a request form for a guide. Guides then may then view the requests of the guests and apply to a candidate for a guide.
