Visit Japan With Hello Kitty’ is an official Japan tourism iPhone app that lets you choose from over 50 Hello Kitty characters as your guide. The free app, which is approved by the Japan Tourism Agency, lets users take pictures with different locally-themed Hello Kitty characters in various places around the country. They appear on the screen so you can have your photo taken with them, and then you can share these with friends on social networks. If you collect a number of different characters, you will receive a special smartphone wallpaper.
