Let the Dashing Commanders of Ikemen Sengoku Give You a Tour of Gifu!

Travel company Kinki Nippon Tourist is teaming up with the popular renai game Ikemen Sengoku: Toki wo Kakeru Koi and the cities of Gifu and Seki for a special travel plan called “Ikemen Sengoku Bushou to Meguru Gifu no Tabi ~Iza Shutsujin! Nobunaga Yukari no Chi e~!” (A Trip Around Gifu With to the Ikemen Sengoku Military Commanders! Let’s Depart to Areas Connected to Nobunaga!) Tickets opened on the official Kinki Nippon Tourist page here on Aug. 21.

Ikemen Sengoku: Toki wo Kakeru Koi is a renai smartphone game that was released in June 2015 by CYBIRD, and it’s one of their most popular Ikemen titles. Extremely popular with women in their 20s and 30s, it’s also been adapted into anime and manga!

In it, you play the protagonist who has unexpectedly travelled back in time to the Sengoku period (or Warring States period). You’re surrounded by famous Sengoku military commanders like Oda Nobunaga, Date Masamune, and Tokugawa Ieyasu.

This travel plan will give you a chance to travel with the different military commanders from the game including Oda Nobunaga. Visitors will get to experience the world of the game in the cities of Gifu and Seki including lodging, sightseeing, and walking around the streets.

In addition to the streets being decorated, there will also be limited edition amenities for guests, houseboat renting plans (Oct. 15 only), and more. There are also short stories written at various points around the cities and a special avatar being distributed in the game.
