From March 19–May 13, 2018 we hosted a campaign where users who posted pictures of cherry blossoms to Instagram with the hashtag #karaksanavi could win accommodation vouchers for karaksa hotels. Thank you to everyone who participated!
With a total of 987 entries, we received submissions from many people outside of Japan, including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and more. The #karaksanavi hashtag became filled with gorgeous photos of cherry blossoms, making Instagram the perfect platform to introduce Japanese culture and the ephemeral, timeless symbol of the cherry blossom.
Direct messages have been sent to the Instagram users that were selected as winners of karaksa hotels accommodation vouchers. Please use your voucher to book karaksa hotels as a sightseeing base for your next trip to Sapporo, Kyoto or Osaka!
Get ready for our second #karaksanavi hashtag contest coming summer 2018!
