Summer time – Vacation time

Summer is no doubt the time of the year when things become exuberant with such outburst of energy. The sun rises early radiating that majestic light of liveliness that makes us all want to jump right into action.

Summer in Japan is no different. It’s the time when people travel, festivals are organized, beaches get crowed and of course tanned skin turns prevalent. In memories of the last summer, we at JP Smart Club organized the Summer Memories Photo Contest where users can upload photos of their summer activities. It can be anything ranging from a table filled with mouth-watering sea food, a scenic view of summer mountain, to the vivacious crowd at a summer festival.

In the period of 2 weeks, we received almost 40 entries which documented the highlights of the users’ summer experience. 

Based on the number of likes on Facebook, the top 3 prizes go to the following users:

    1. First Prize – 10,000 YEN Amazon Gift Card
