Oguni Town

Crowd Control at Nabegataki Park

In Oguni Town there was a starting problem with mass tourism which was solved by a advance reservation system which now controlls the number of visitors. The benefits are the elimination of traffic congestion in the communities around Nabegataki Falls during major holidays, therefore improved living conditions for local residents living near Nabegataki Falls. Furthmore it reduced the risk of COVID-19 infection among tourists by providing a safer environment and it increased the number of visitors to Nabegataki Falls, which will lead to an increase in the number of visitors to tourism-related businesses in the town.
