A friend of mine who works on the NAVITIME for Japan Travel website has an on-going Instagram competition. Hit the link for more details. You can win “special prize packs” and a chance to have your photo displayed at the Haneda International Airport station.
I have no idea what’s in those “special prize packs”. Hopefully massive wads of money (probably not).
The above photo is one of my entries. It’s a photo of Mt. Rausu (Rausu-dake 羅臼岳) I took 2 years ago on my first trip to the Shiretoko National Park (知床国立公園), a World Natural Heritage in Hokkaido. I had actually summited the mountain the day before the picture was taken. And in September last year, I climbed Mt. Rausu again with some friends, then continued on to the next 6 mountains on a 3-day trek called the Shiretoko Traverse.
Shiretoko place is probably the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to in Japan!
If you have any good photographs from your trips to Japan, you might want to join the contest. Or don’t so my odds of winning get better.
