And the Winner is…

Thank you to everyone who took part in our GaijinPotTravel photo contest.

We were seriously impressed by the amazing range and quality of the images submitted. Your captures made us fall in love with Japan all over again.

During the contest, there were accusations of cheating by using paid-for likes. We’ve filtered the potential winners according to a ratio for “number of followers: likes” to ensure that the winning photo is the one that got the most organic likes in an honest way. This also allows those people who do not have a large following but a great picture a fair chance at the contest.

Please keep tagging #gaijinpottravel in your pics of Japan for a chance to be featured on GaijinPot Travel and our social media. Plus, stay tuned for the next giveaway where you could win more prizes!
