To ensure your safety and health, we are going to take the following measures. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

● Each Audio Guide device is covered with a disposable plastic cover.

● Plastic straps are used instead of previously used cloth straps so that they can be disinfected.

● Disposable earbuds (100 yen) are available for sale if you do not wish to use the attached ones.

● You are allowed to use your own wired earbuds.

● Please clean your hands with hand sanitizer before renting the Audio Guide devices.

● After the devices are returned, we will replace a disposable plastic cover and disinfect the earbuds and the strap with alcohol.
