The results are in! Celebrating karaksa hotels’ official Instagram launch campaign

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.

About connecting rooms

Connecting rooms are great options for families and groups. These adjacent rooms are connected by inner doors, allowing guests to move freely back and forth—with the added convenience of two bathrooms. Inner doors can be closed when going to bed.
