In 2002,MoominIs a character that appears inSnafkinNewspapers and traffic advertisements using the above have appeared, aiming to spread the name recognition.On the other hand, while the accommodation facility general reservation site continues to run alone, other companies launched a series of accommodation reservation comprehensive sites in the 2000s, and the expansion and competition for pies began to take place.
