To celebrate our continued expansion into Asia with the opening of programs in Kyoto and Tokyo, we’ve design a fun, interactive scavenger hunt competition. Starting March 15th, the two-week hunt will have participants competing against one another for the grand prize: a free private 3-hour walk in Tokyo or Kyoto.
The hunt is open to any smartphone user who likes a challenge and has an appetite for knowledge.
Here’s how it works: Context will publish a list of tasks that all participants must complete. They include challenges along the lines of: take a photo of yourself eating traditional Japanese Udon noodles, find an amida buddha figurine, and take a picture of Otaku in a public place. Participants are required then to take a photo of the thing, often with themselves in the photo and upload it to the scavenger hunt app (The app is hosted by Scavenger Hunt with Friends). Participants will have two weeks to complete twenty tasks.
Simply download the Scavenger Hunt with Friends app and search for the contest “Context Japan,” to get started.
Test your knowledge of Japanese history and culture and play along with us! You can even comment on images posted by all participants, making this a truly interactive experience.
A winner will be selected from the top scorers and awarded a voucher for a free private, three-hour walking seminar in either Tokyo or Kyoto, which will be valid for any period in the future. The grand prize winner and the next two top scorers will receive a copy of Luxe City Guides’ Tokyo edition.
