“Ikyu.com Furusato Nozei” is an “accommodation-specific furusato nozei site” where you can choose “discount coupons” for carefully selected inns from among the member facilities of the accommodation reservation site “Ikyu.com” as a return gift. . Electronic coupons are issued immediately on the site and can be used immediately for accommodation reservations on “Ikyu.com”.
As of the start of the service on October 3, 2022, 12 municipalities and 70 inns have exhibited, and additional participation is planned in the near future. It is a form of donating by specifying an inn, and the lineup of inns that are supported by heavy users who love traveling and lodging are available on “Ikyu.com”.
Feature 1: “Inn-specific furusato nozei site,” where reward 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. The amount of money you can donate at one time will be high, but we are trying to minimize the time it takes to select a donation recipient and the number of donations as much as possible. “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: Achieving a service that benefits all directions for users, local governments, inns, and Ikkyu
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 in return, 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. We will realize a service where users, local governments, inns, and Ikyu are all good.
Feature 3: Promoting trips to experience the charm of “hometown” and contributing to regional revitalization
By using the gift as a discount coupon, we will promote “travel” to the local area and 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.
