Information of these operation hours and arrival or departure harbors are posted on each website of ship company. However, there was no service to put all shipping routes information together, and users needed to research several websites to know, for instance, access information to an island.
To make a better environment for travelers so that they can use the seiling routes in Setouchi easier, we assisted the service by providing Stroly API. They collected several seiling route information and not only showed it on Google map, but also created a multilingual seiling route map with illustration of seiling routes so that travelers can see it at one glance. Also, switching the display of seiling route map and Google map is available.
