Visit Kyoto Prize Campaign ( September 2010 – February 2011)

In addition to the usual winter events in Kyoto, this year's Kyoto Winter Special is hosting an interactive campaign that everyone can participate in. Whether a Kyoto aficionado or someone who has never visited before, let's get together to make this year's Kyoto Winter Special truly special!

Kyoto Travel Ideas Campaign

What are the attractions of Kyoto for visitors from overseas?
What can we do to communicate better the wonder of Kyoto to other countries?
We want to hear your ideas on Kyoto's attractions, good ways to enjoy the city, and good ways of creating publicity for it! We will also welcome any requests for events you would like to see included in this year's Kyoto Winter Special or special articles you would like to see featured! Don't hesitate to let us know your views. A luxury prize will be awarded for submissions that are selected as exceptional contributions. With prizes that include gift vouchers for accommodations in Kyoto, this campaign offers fantastic opportunities to come and enjoy Kyoto!

Kyoto Photo Album Campaign

Will you help us to put together a Kyoto photo album with some of your snapshots? We would love to see some of your photos of Kyoto, so we can create an album of everyone's pictures on Facebook or Flickr! Prizes will be awarded for particularly topical shots. There is no limit to the number of pictures that may be submitted by one person, so please feel free to send in as many as you like.
