WAmazing is a startup company developing a tourism platform service for overseas tourists to Japan.
WAmazing allows you to book hotels at the lowest prices, reserve activities, and even receive a free SIM card.
WAmazing was founded in 2016 by Fumiko Kato and Yuichi Tateno. The company is headquartered Tokyo, Japan. WAmazing's main service regions are Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Southeast Asian countries, and Australia.
WAmazing provides online (Web, App, WeChat) centralized travel reservation arrangements (OTA business) for the five major consumption categories (accommodation, sightseeing, shopping, transportation, and food & beverage) of inbound tourism to Japan.
WAmazing has built a business model in which growth is accelerated by synergy effects among the three business lines of OTA, Regional Tourism DX, and Inbound Marketing Consulting. WAmazing has also set up free SIM distribution machines at 23 airports in Japan with regular international flights, and free SIM cards.
WAmazing had over 400,000 registered members at the end of January 2023. WAmazing also launched WAmazing Snow, a website providing online purchasing and reservations of ski resort passes and nearby accommodation.

The company raised JPY 240M in a Series C2 round on Apr 04, 2023, bringing cumulative total of JPY 610M raised in the round. The additional investment brings WAmazing's total overall funding to JPY 3.14B to date.
