Tokyo, Japan

About the project

Sweet Safari is a smartphone app to help foodies, fashion enthusiasts, and influencers find cute and Instagrammable cafes and photo spots.

"Girls’ guide to a cute food adventure!"

Currently, identifying and locating Instagram-worthy locations involves both research (via blogs and social media) and the use of a maps app.
Sweet Safari aims to streamline this process to benefit both users and businesses.
