Due to the recent popularization of the regional creation based on the growth strategy of Japan, the challenge to the sightseeing industry is attracted great attention. In particular, researchers have proposed a support system to analyze users’ tourism and provide tourist information. In second tourism, users need to set the tourist route by specifying the visiting place based on their memories and photos in their first tourism. In addition, when users uses the location-based application that has saved the tourist route in their previous sightseeing, it is difficult to judge whether the tourist spot on this route wants to go for the second time or not. In this paper, we propose a system for supporting users’ second tourism based on their travel lifelogs stored in multiple applications. In our proposed system, we develop an algorithm to collect information about the spots in the second tourism based on the history of searching words, the calendar information, and the playback history on YouTube. Next, we design and implement a web application to control our proposed system. In the evaluation by the questionnaire after using the proposed system, users can easily remember the detail of their previous tourism by checking the search history.
