The Miyazaki Airport Building, Co. in
Miyazaki Prefecture located in the southern island of Japan launched
the "taxi concierge" service that the female staff treat the passengers
at the front entrance of the Building on April 6.
This aims at promoting the use of a
taxi as well as the sightseeing. The person in charge of the service is
intent on giving the warm welcome that makes the visitors come to the
prefecture again. Six female staff aged 18-41 are
taking charge of a taxi concierge such as arrangements of a taxi, giving
the visitors advice on sightseeing, helping elderly people, introducing
the airport facility, etc. They are also learning English,
Korean, and Taiwanese in order to respond to foreign tourists. Moreover,
they are studying sign language for the Deaf visitors.
