People from all over the world have submitted their entries for our Win a Trip to Japan competition in partnership with Japan Airlines. We asked you to make a 30-second video telling us your reasons about why you want to visit Japan and tag it with #gaijinpottravel.

We’ve seen everything from udon lovers, to anime fans; J-Pop singers to video game heroes, outdoor explorers to photographing globetrotters, all hoping to come to Japan for the adventure of a lifetime!

As the competition comes to a close at the end of this month, check out some of the highlights. Who do you think should win?


Keith Lapinig is a video editor who loves traveling the world. Take a look at his impressive editing skills in this sleek entry.


Claire wants to come to Japan to speak Japanese with the locals. We like her awesome language skills and passion for Japanese food.


Videographer Tyler from Canada wants to capture everything from the busy streets of Tokyo to the culture and the traditional art, the different types of food, the advanced technology and the amazing beaches. We especially rate his epic closing shot.

Some Guy

We don’t know his name but this witty submission from ‘some guy’ lists “crowds, owl cafes, magical noodles and the occasional penis festival” as his reasons for coming to Japan.


We love Tania’s enthusiasm and passion for Japan. She even already has a guidebook!

There’s still time to submit your entry for the competition – applications close April 30th 24:00 JST.
