A huge thank you to everyone who submitted entries to the first-ever “Win a Trip to Japan” competition sponsored by GaijinPot and Japan Airlines. The response was overwhelming, as we received more than 200 video entries from all around the world.

After an exhausting but fun week of reviewing the entries (yes, we watched every single one), we are proud to announce our five semi-finalists! In the next several days, we will be interviewing each of them via Skype to see who will go on to the final stage, where JAL will review the top candidates and choose the winner. We look forward to announcing that lucky traveler soon.

Check out the best of the truly amazing video entries from our finalists. And stay tuned to GaijinPot for the announcement of the winner!

    Thanks for the support Maemi. I didn’t get the trip, but I learned that I made the top 2. Kelsey didn’t get it either. I don’t know who won yet…but I was kind of pushing for Raluca. BTW, I have been to Japan (but, it’s been around 15 years since my last visit…) Maybe that’s why I didn’t get it… And yea…. It took a lot of hard editing to stick to that 30 second requirement!
