■ Markings Make for Easy Navigation
Riding your motorcycle without a destination is a fun way to discover new things, but there may be times you want to head straight to your destination. In such times, open your map to check explorable spots and the routes to them. By marking the spot on your map, you can navigate the route without the worry of getting lost.
■ Take Photographs at Each Spot
At each spot, you can take your own photographs. You can move the camera at 360 degrees even when taking photographs, so snap a shot of the scenery from your favorite angle.
Photographs can also be taken at your preferred timing. However, there are some scenes that can only be photographed during events, so be sure not to miss your chance.
There are two types of cameras: single-lens reflex and smartphone. While this does not affect the photographs you can take, you can enjoy a journey truer to yourself by using a camera more suited to your style.

■ Post Articles and Aim for the Top Rank

The competition ranking will fluctuate based on the performance of your articles and the materials you utilized. Articles will also receive “Likes” and comments, giving players a taste of real travel blogging.
