- Feature 1: “Inn-specialized hometown tax payment site” where gifts are carefully selected for luxury inns
We carefully select discount coupons for inns where you can experience a “luxury in your heart” as a return gift. The amount of donation is about 200,000 to 600,000 yen, and the discount amount is about 60,000 to 180,000 yen. Although the amount of money you can donate at one time is high,A system that minimizes the time it takes to select a donation destination and the number of donationsWe are.
“Ikyu.com” has many heavy users who love traveling and lodging, spending more than 1 million yen a year. One of our heavy users, a large taxpayer, has concerns about hometown tax payments, such as the fact that it takes time and effort to select a large number of gifts every year, and that the delivery of gifts overlaps, so many gifts are sent at once. I’ve heard that it takes time to receive it or it takes time to receive it. The desire to solve this problem was the impetus for entering the hometown tax business.
- Feature 2: Realization of a service where users, local governments, inns, and Ikyu are “good for all”
During our interviews, we heard that even local governments that have wonderful inns and attractive tourism resources face the unique hurdles of making “accommodation” a gift as a gift, making it difficult for them to implement this on their own. . Specifically, when an accommodation plan is exhibited as a paper “accommodation ticket”, the burden of operations such as plan creation, amount setting, exclusion date setting, and coupon shipping is large. In addition, it was pointed out that local governments have a problem in attracting users.
“Ikyu.com Furusato Nozei” utilizes the know-how and customer base that Ikyu has accumulated through the operation of the accommodation reservation site, and cooperates and acts as an agent for operations and attracting customers.By solving the problem with the trinity of the local government, the inn, and the Ikyu, we have realized the “Ikyu.com hometown tax”.
Users (taxpayers) can reduce the hassle of furusato nozei and immediately receive a gift (electronic coupon). Coupons are automatically linked to your Ikyu.com account, can be used immediately, and can be completed online. Municipalities will utilize attractive tourism resources, and inns will provide wonderful experiences, which will lead to an increase in tourists to the local area. Ikkyu can improve the service mainly for heavy users.Users, local governments, inns, and Ikkyu“Good for all directions”We will realize a service that will be.

By using the gift as a discount coupon, we promote “travel” to the local area,We will contribute to local consumption and regional revitalization.In addition, we hope that it will help you experience the charm of the inn and the land as if you were in your hometown through local tourism.
We would be happy if you could create a happy time while complying with the hometown tax system by enjoying the inn and municipality of the donation recipient as if it were your hometown.
