A new subscription service for sightseeing spots and leisure facilities called “Leisure Me!” launched on June 17. SB Japan Inc., a company based in Saga Prefecture, runs the service with which users can enter 5~10 places after paying a monthly subscription fee of ¥2,000 ~ ¥3,600. Currently, a significant part of the fifty registered facilities including Fukuoka City’s Umizuri Park and Hakata Machiya Folk Museum are in Kyushu. The company targets to partner with 250~350 more spots nationwide by the end of the year. The application is currently available for iPhones only. An Android version will be distributed from June 27.
