According to a survey by the Japan Tourism Agency, the uppermost inconvenience for foreign travelers are 'lack of free Wi-Fi', 'communication', and 'difficulty figuring out public transportation routes to destinations'. In preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, Tokyu Corporation is engaged in a variety of endeavors to assist inbound visitors. In an effort to meet the above-mentioned visitor needs, they have joined with TOKYO FM and another company to undertake "VISIT SHIBUYA BUS - SUMMER PROMOTION."
The promotion includes operation of the tour bus for VISIT SHIBUYA BUS
complete with an English audio tour and Wi-Fi, all free of charge. In
addition to shuttling visitors to popular tourism locales such as
Omotesando and Roppongi, the promotion assists foreign tourists
wandering about the city by distributing walking maps and providing free
Wi-Fi service while they are riding the bus.
Anyone who downloads tickets from the site listed below is eligible to ride the bus for the duration of the promotion.
Tokyu Corporation has also created a Shibuya PR Book to introduce the
appeal of the Shibuya area. This convenient booklet allows users to
discover at-a-glance various facts, places to see, popular
establishments, and the future vision for Shibuya, which is the
number-one most visited spot in Tokyo by foreign travelers. Shibuya
station itself boasts the third highest ridership worldwide, and the
area is one of the most exciting attractions in Tokyo, featuring a
concentration of movie and theatrical theaters, as well as clubs with
live music (called 'live-houses' in Japan).

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users.
