JR East Startup is promoting the “JR East Startup Program”, a business creation activity in collaboration with venture companies and people with excellent business ideas. In this third year, in order to further promote open innovation, as a new field of regional cooperation, we invited a collaborative plan to utilize special zones and areas in Niigata City in anticipation of Niigata Station development. A demonstration experiment will be conducted with the cooperation of Niigata City for the two proposals in the field of “AI x tourism” that have been adopted.
Since last year, Niigata City has supported a demonstration project conducted by a private company utilizing advanced technologies such as AI, IoT, and big data as an initiative for regional revitalization. This time, as one of the demonstration experiments at Niigata Station, we proposed a new way to enjoy sake in the Shibuya area of ​​Tokyo, the origin of culture. We will open a limited-edition tourist information center called “SAKE TOURIST INFORMATION BAR” for the sake of sake and sake breweries / restaurants for each person from February 14 (Fri). .
At the “Sake Tourist Information Bar”, you can experience taste judgment using AI. By proposing a rally-type trip near Niigata Station, which classifies into 12 types of sake flavors using a unique algorithm, and proposes a taste that suits each person for each judgment result, restaurants and liquor stores around Niigata Station We aim to revitalize the whole area by encouraging visitors to travel, dispelling tourists’ anxiety on the land for the first time, and transmitting unknown attractions that are unique to the local area. It also analyzes the number of stores visited, the number of ledgers distributed, and the number of customers sent to external stores, and through the sake recommendation service of AI taste determination, serves as a bridge between tourists and local industries, and proposes a new style of tourism. To do.
* Contents of implementation are subject to change without notice [About “SAKE TOURIST INFORMATION BAR”]
The SAKE TOURIST INFORMATION BAR, a tourist base that proposes sake products, restaurants, and liquor stores tailored to each individual by comparing tastes of 10 types of sake using AI, will be opened. At the “Sake Tour Information Bar”, the tastes are judged by AI, and the recommended sake for each taste is recommended. This time, Niigata will be the stage, so we will recommend about 80 brands of Niigata sake that match your taste and taste.
We treat sake as a tourist resource, classify it into 12 types of sake taste types using our unique algorithm, and propose a rally-type trip near Niigata Station around the Niigata Station for a taste that suits each individual for each judgment result, around Niigata Station We will promote the excursions of local restaurants and liquor stores and aim to revitalize the entire region.
Niigata sake has a strong image of “ Tanrei Dry ”, but “ Tanrei Dry ” is only one of the 12 types of AI taste judgment, and it is possible to classify the taste into 11 other types I can do it. By visualizing the taste, you can select the sake that suits your tastes, and at the same time, discover the brand of sake that suits you. Since sake brewing and human taste are diverse, you can discover and enjoy various types of sake without knowledge, so you will travel around tourist spots starting from Niigata’s sake, which had not been fully utilized as a tourist resource It will be open for a limited time as a new style tourist information center.

[Comment from Mayor Nakahara Niigata] Expectations for this
demonstration experiment through experience with AI taste judgment Niigata boasts one of the largest breweries in Japan and is a tourist resource of Niigata. It is important to get many brands known to enhance the appeal, and we are very excited about the establishment of the Sake Tourist Information Bar. Immediately after performing AI taste judgment, it turned out to be an awaawa type (sparkling system with sweet and sour taste). How about experiencing this initiative as a new way to enjoy Japanese sake, not only for people outside the prefecture but also for Niigata?
