Tell Us Your Japan Love Story in 100 Words

Inspired by the New York Times’ Tiny Love Stories series and Japan’s passion for all things miniature, we’re collecting short love stories from our readers — with a Japan slant — for this upcoming Valentine’s Day.

In 100 words or less, tell us your love story that relates to Japan in some way. Ever been in love with a Japanese person? Or had your heart broken in Japan? How has Japan changed your perception of love? What does Valentine’s Day in Japan mean for you? We want to hear about your experience in as lyrical a snapshot as you can create.

Make sure to include a picture that helps express your story visually, whether it’s a photo, drawing or screenshot. You can use your real name, your SNS handle or submit as “Anonymous.”

Please submit your entry by February 3. We’ll feature the best stories on GaijinPot Blog on Valentine’s Day.

We can’t wait to hear from you.
