Hotel Okura, a Japanese hospitality company headquartered in Tokyo, has launched an online travel planner app on the websites of its two hotel groups, Okura Hotels & Resorts and Nikko Hotels International.

The app, developed by TripSketch Corporation, helps travelers identify local attractions and plan sightseeing and activities.

TripSketch has customized the app for 19 of the groups properties and linked it to local offers on the hotels individual pages.

Guests who plan to stay at the hotels can browse the destinations' tourist attractions, tours and excursions and see their distance from the hotel.

The app is designed to help guests plan activities and create itineraries that can be saved, e-mailed and shared.

The app will be available for 19 group hotels in Tokyo, Kyoto, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Honolulu, San Francisco, Amsterdam and Dsseldorf.

We constantly look for new ways to improve our international clients' experience when they stay with us, and make their stays more convenient and enjoyable, said Kenji Goto, Representative Director and Senior Managing Corporate Executive Officer of Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. This application will let our guests engage with us well before their arrival. Of course, our hotel concierges can offer additional suggestions when guests arrive.
