A Special Time for memories

Japan is a country that everyone should at least visit at least once in a lifetime. I have seen for myself be it videos or pictures that are awesomely breathtaking in Japan. I have admired them and hope that one day I will be able to bring my parents to the country to experience the beauty of spring or summer or winter themselves. Be it the beauty of the nature or the heritage and culture (trying on the kimono) as well as the food. I believe it would leave a strong memory for my family. Since 2015 I graduated I have wanted to bring my family overseas for a holiday but however due to the lack of funds I am not able to do so. So I would really really hope I am able to bring my parents on a free trip while I pay for my own ticket. This way it would lighten the burden a little bit. Hence I really wish to win this. Thank you for organising this contest japanbyjapan ❤️

This would definitely be a trip worthwhile and a holiday to relax after a long time stressing over work and the time to be away from the busy lifestyle. Thank you!!


Winner: Stephanie Phua
Prize Won: One Canon EOS M10 Camera

Japan Dreaming!

I've been running my own startup for 2+ years and because I've never really been able to let go, I've only been able to take short trips within Southeast Asia, usually interrupted by work. My bf has been incredibly understanding though. Now that I'm finally staffing up, I'd like to take a proper break with him. Plus he is in love with the Japanese dedication and food! Hope to win :)

Winner: Seow Swee Meng

My dream to get to travel to Japan this year with my family! My family and I love Japan food, culture and shopping! There are so many places of interest & onsen that I can't wait to go Japan and see it come alive! I am just so fascinated about the types of vending machines in Japan. Lastly, my children want to go Disneyland, DisneySea & Universal studio in Japan!
