Tobu Top Tours is running a premium coupon issuance business for rental bicycle users in Tsuchiura City, Ibaraki Prefecture, until the end of February 2011.
Tsuchiura City, located in the southern part of Ibaraki Prefecture, is located about an hour from the city center, and is surrounded by Lake Kasumigaura, which boasts the second largest area in Japan, and Tsukuba, which is known as “Fuji in the west, Tsukuba in the east.” Rich nature such as mountains spreads out. The Tsukuba-Kasumigaura Ring-Ring Road, which has been selected as a national cycle route, stretches from the vicinity of JR Tsuchiura Station toward Mt. Tsukuba and Kasumigaura. We are promoting town development that utilizes these resources.
The purpose of the “Tsuchiura Gurutto Cycle Coupon” to be implemented this time is to promote tourism by allowing even beginners of cycling to easily enjoy cycling while sightseeing in the city using rental bicycles. This coupon is an electronic coupon that uses a smartphone, and can be purchased for 3,000 yen for 1,000 yen for those who use rental bicycles at designated rental bicycle shops in Tsuchiura city. The purchase method is to scrape off the scratch card that is given to the purchaser when renting a bicycle, read the 2D code with a smartphone, and then read the 2D code on the store side to make a payment when using it. .
Sales and use will continue until February 28, 2023 (Tuesday). Coupons can be used to pay for rental bicycle usage fees as well as at restaurants and other establishments in the city that are members of this project. It can be used by a wide range of guests. For more information, please contact the Tsuchiura Gurutto Cycle Coupon Secretariat (TEL 050-9001-8726 weekdays 10:00-16:00).
We will continue to work with local residents and local governments to continue our efforts to “contribute to local life and a prosperous society through travel.”
