This study proposes a method for provoking a subtly deviated routing using a mobile application. In daily life, people often visit the same place repeatedly using a fixed route, and there are few chances to change this fixed behavior. It means that they lose opportunities to deepen their understanding of these surroundings. Our proposed method tries to solve this problem by provoking users to take a subtly deviated route. To achieve this, we developed a mobile application that provides a location-linked story that can only be read at a specific location. This application aims to guide users to places of which they are not usually aware. The user reads the content linked to the location and is expected to develop an understanding of that environment through immersion in the content. This paper describes the concept and implementation of the application.
