Project Overview

Amagawaso is a small ryokan and onsen in Shibu Onsen, before coming to us they had a small web presence created approximately 10 years ago. The old page suffered from poor programming and would not show up in any search engines, didn’t work in modern browsers and on the rare occasion it was found it had the unfortunate effect of deterring visitors not bringing new clients in.

We were brought in to turn everything around. Starting with a huge photography session vibrant imagery of the ryokan and menu was created. Then an image-first style design was created to match the tone of the owners and surrounding areas.

These designs were then worked into a fully responsive web layout, which changes its shape and layout to match modern PCs, tablets and phones along with a mobile friendly form and booking system.

Finally, analytic software was installed into the website to help he business owners track how many people are using the website and how many people are coming from various other sources such as Rakuten and Jalan affiliations.
