ROOTER PROF:Azusa Ihara

ROOTER’S INTERVIEW VOL.12 2019.03.28 @TOKYO UENO

Happy to enjoy it even on a leisurely trip!!

HOW DID YOU KNOW ROOTTRIP?

I found it when I search for guide matching service.

WHAT IS THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD TRY TO BE A GUIDE USING ROOTTRIP?

Originally, I wanted to provide a service for foreigners visiting Japan. I wanted to show them my favorite places. At that time I liked EBISU, so I wanted to introduce cafes and shops.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT MAKES YOU BE IN TROUBLE OR FEEL ANXIOUS?

Nothing in particular. But It will be better if the app is a little easier to use. It takes some time to get used to it, so it would be nice to have a UI / UX that is easier to use for first-time users.

DO YOU OFTEN GO TO TRAVEL?

I like traveling, but I rarely go from there to travel abroad or outside the prefecture. I'm often said that it is surprising. Lol

WHAT DO YOU DO USUALLY?

I hold a tour event in UENO every week. The girls have a three-hour event that places the most importance on communication with people. It is not a tour where history or tourist destinations are worthwhile, but a tour event where the people you meet are worthwhile.

WHERE ARE YOU ALWAYS?

Well, I'm often in UENO. Both the shopping district and UENO Park go well. I also like high culture and low culture. EBISU,DAIKANYAMA and I often go there. Unlike UENO where you can experience various cultures, I also like relaxing places.

WHAT WAS THE GOOD POINT USING ROOTTRIP AS A GUIDE?

I'm glad to enjoy it even on a leisurely trip. I usually create content well, so I think it's attractive that you can enjoy casual communication.
